Let me explain in a Reader’s Digest/bullet point mashup: Daughter scored new job; new job offers free health care for employees and their spouses. Daughter and SI travel to Italy and he proposes marriage; she accepts. They set the wedding a mere 7 wks. away, encounter set-backs, mother of the bride toils finding a dress but perseveres and all bumps in the road are history.
Bike riding goes from so few miles per week to so many miles per week to what’s a bike ride? Thanks to weather, business taking a sharp upturn, and frankly, availablity of friends with whom to ride, April is a very volatile month. I looked back on diary, Facebook and blogs and it seems that April is fraught with extremes, metereologically, physically and mentally. No wonder I don’t try to establish consistency this month.
I’ve participated in the #30daysofcycling for several years but this year blew it off. I knew I’d be busy with business, as well as with our American Home Week event, for which I signed up because the Past-President tapped me and I did not say no, and our daughter’s wedding. Shopping for the right dress, as friend Andrea can testify, is trying.
So no riding Saturday (rain + dress shopping), Sunday (rain + finishing and submitting taxes and buying food) or Monday (committee commitments and wrangling a newly-accepted offer and trying to keep a sale alive). Instead of riding this evening we walked the dogs. As much as I miss riding, I’m happy to do the right thing on several levels.
I sure miss riding…May will be here before we know it, and I have concerns about being fit enough for our Blue Ridge Mountains ride.
