Father's Day without any Dads...

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Well - we made it through Father's Day number 4 without my husband and number 2 without my Dad.

And yet, what a weekend! My little one (9) finally mastered her 2 wheeler. Funny she finally got it on this weekend. But then - her daddy was a triathlete. And her mommy - me - is training for her first triathlon. Thursday I finally got out the bike I am planning to race with. That would be my husband's tri bike. What a great bike! Old but wonderful. I oiled the gears, put on the "girl seat," pumped up the tires and started training. Cycle 10+ miles and then run. Tough but felt great. But even better was to inspire my daughter to ride. And she was so ready. Mastered that bike Saturday and then rode 8 miles Monday. Woo-hoo! I am so proud of her. And so is her Dad, I'm sure.

We kept very busy around Father's Day this year and did a bunch of new things. We also had some parties and get togethers. That were tons of fun! Good thing we are getting so much exercise to make up for the yummy food!

Time - and everything we do with that time - really seems to be helping us. In the throes of grief you think you will never feel better. But it changes. Another few milestones pass... emoticon
