Microwaving it with a banana until it turns to mush is awesome as well.

Re: Tires

Look for a local tractor supply store or put a wanted ad on Craigslist.

Most people will be thrilled to have you haul one of these away for them.

Cut out the drinking for a period of time and see if that changes anything. Also make sure your drinking plenty of water.

Re: Wife and Crossfit

If shes just intimidated by CF and isn't big into exercise why not start her out with something she'll enjoy and ease her into it? Pushing too hard at first won't do either of you any good.
