Hanging Tough!!

Monday, May 13, 2013

May started out super, but reversed itself quickly. I started limping and was unable to ride the bike for several days. The "Boss Lady" went on a 2-week business travel which necessitated my taking care of 2 dogs, a cat, the house, and myself. In the middle of that was a back and forth 400-mile drive to pick up my son, who had finished his Freshman year at the University of North Texas. Hopefully, the rest of the month will be "bike friendly". But all was not bad. First off, I met my son's girlfriend and she is a doll. Not only is she beautiful, but she's also low-key, real (as opposed to plastic) and just a joy to be around. Secondly, I alerted my son that he had to have A's and B's to be able to drive his car to school and he did just that. And thirdly, we celebrated Mother's Day in honor of my life partner. So, overall, it hasn't been that bad. HOOAAA!!

    I read "pride" between every line of your blog: pride in "the boss lady", pride in yourself for holding down the fort, and pride in your son - his accomplishments and his choices. As you say, "HOOAAA!!! And I know you'll be back in the saddle soon!

    That is great news except for being unable to ride your bike. Give it time. Maybe you need a break.
    I'm glad you like the girlfriend. That makes your son feel better.

    Starting to get some miles in as well. Been sick but didn't let that stop me from trying to do a century at the Tour de Cure. Got 70 because still a little sick and had bike issues. Best of luck in getting your miles in!
