New PR and new stress!
Monday, July 08, 2013
Yesterday I achieved yet another PR! 24 miles on the bike. Why am I doing this? Well, a few reasons actually.
1. I need the exercise
2. In about 10 days DH and I will be on Mt. Desert Island, Maine, and we will be riding bikes there. It is VERY hilly there. Basically no flat roads. I need to be in shape to ride there.
3. In the fall, DH and I will travel to the Grand Canyon of PA and ride the trail there for 37 miles. This will probably be my longest ride this year. Who know, maybe I will be given another "opportunity" to ride even further.
My MIL is coming for a visit on the 16th of this month. Even though DH and I have been married for over 22 years and together for almost 25, I still stress when MIL is around. I took her "favorite" child. I think she is still pissed. She tends to be critical and, sometimes, just down right nasty. I was watching "Monster In Law" last night and it reminded me of her. Just breathe! She is paying for this entire trip. I will be letting DH play golf with her when ever they want. Okay, I'll be honest. I let them play to get her away from me. There will be many times when I will not have to be around her. The trip will be good. The trip will be good. The trip will be good. Yep! That's going to be my mantra.
