|M-B is as big as me now!|
As I was driving home and the rain was pounding down on my car, I was just thinking of how much I wanted to see Monkey-Butt and Stinky-Cheese. I don't regret my decision for a moment. My time was well spent last night, even if it was just helping them on the computer issue and getting nowhere. lol
This morning, I awoke to the sound of the wind howling. While wind is generally a pain in the ass while riding a bike, unfortunately, in my neighborhood, it is also rather dangerous. It can get very blustery, and with all of the huge fir trees, the risk of getting hit with fallen cones, limbs, and heaven forbid worse, are eminent. Sadly, I have seen some pretty horrible accidents with very grim results due to the wind and trees around here. :( It is enough to keep me on the trainer or riding in another area on days like these.
|S-C will be 12 next month!|
I feel like this weekend should belong to the boys...the boys and me. We all played Magic the Gathering together. I can't say that I totally get it, but Monkey-Butt is just tickled pink that I am playing with him, since Stinky-Cheese seems to have "grown out of it." Stinky-Cheese was on my team so that he could help me learn. I just love them. I feel like time is just slipping by so quickly... They are growing so fast... M-B will be in high school next fall, and S-C in middle school! I think I am starting to feel a little scared. The reality that it won't be so long before I am an "empty-nester" is hitting me. Then what?? WTF will I do then?? Who the heck am I without my sons? I feel like I have been Mom since the day I was born...
I know that a lot of the reason that I started running and cycling was so that I would have something of my own. I am very grateful for it too. It is also something that I want my sons to see me do and be proud of me. I want them to see that if you put your mind to something and work hard, you can achieve your goals, and do things that others never would have thought possible.
