Transformation Tuesday

Travel Tuesday is becoming Transformation Tuesday.  We have taken this big step transform our lives.  I run and workout to transform myself.  And I would like to transform my diet.  So there it is.

Moving to a completely new state means learning new “wildlife.”  I was out in the yard last night, just puttering around.  The sun had just gone down.  And I started getting buzzed by bats!  So I called Michael out in the yard to check it out.  And my whole day was made by hearing Michael scream like a little girl when he thought a bat had brushed his leg. It was the dog.  But so worth it!

The neighbor that came over Sunday night had told us that we would see/hear coyotes over on the golf course.  And sure enough, first thing this morning, I could hear them over there yipping and howling.  Of course, I wanted to see them.  But by the time I got up to the golf course on my walk, they were gone.

I walked 2 miles this morning.  My IT Band, which had been doing so well, did not react kindly to my 6 mile run. So I will rest it again and then ease back into long runs slower.

And how do I get this guy in my yard?

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
