I was jonesin' for some time with Cha-Cha and so I called in late to work this morning and hopped on for a ten mile doodle in the park. It was glorious. And just what I needed. I am very fortunate to have a bit of flexibility in my schedule.
I had a really good weekend. Great ride with the kids on Saturday - until Pebbles had a little gravity check. She's okay, just road rashy and bloodied knees. She has a history of just riding right off the trail. Actually, she was turning around to talk to me and ran off the path and was heading for the river. She over-corrected, caught the edge of the path and kissed the pavement. Unfortunately, I think this spill may have severely dampened her enthusiasm for riding - that and the fact that she scratched her new iPhone.
There was more goodness to the weekend and one really interesting incident where my response caught me very off-guard. I'm still processing on that one and will write about it when I get some clarity. There's a saying in the rooms that "if you're hysterical, it's historical" and while I was a LONG way from hysterical, my strong reaction to a particular situation merits some closer investigation.
In other news, Cha-Cha is going to Colorado! Bick and I are taking a camping vacation in Colorado next month. Tent and everything! And Cha-Cha is coming along. Bick proposed this outdoor extravaganza and I was like, well, shocked! On tap: rafting, a bit of hiking and some biking for me. I'm excited. This is such a departure from the usual. I'm thrilled to see a bit more activity make it's way into vacations.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Adjust.
