Last night Nate and I volunteered at Cycles for Change again. Last time we were stripping unusable bike frames for useable parts, but last night we got to repair a whole bike! It was just a little girls bike, but we replaced both the tubes and tires, fixed the non-functioning brakes and replaced the brake cables and housing (working on brakes is my favorite thing to do!), replaced the rusted-out chain, steel-wooled all the rust off the crank, put pedals on, and generally oiled everything up so it was all moving and functioning again. We took it from a rusted piece of junk that was donated and didn't work, to something that will make a little girl very happy in under two hours! It was really fulfilling!

Tonight I'm volunteering at an Arc's Value Village, helping to unpack and label things for their "Merry Thriftmas" season. I don't know what is up with me and volunteering so much lately. I like to volunteer and all, but with four jobs, I usually don't have time. Lately things have just been working out though, and I love it! Maybe because these are two places I really believe in and volunteering there is actually fun!

I have just downloaded iStripper, and now I enjoy having the sexiest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
