Tuesday: Betrayal

IMG_0340I landed back on the bike at the gym on Tuesday.  Everything on the right side is starting to feel better.  But since I am not “training” for a specific race and have nothing coming up, there is no need to push it.  I am trying to be smart.  Still.  I may try a short run Wednesday and see how it goes.

Bike: 9 miles / 45 minutes

I finished up making some Christmas goodies on Tuesday and need to get those out in the mail.

IMG_1792I have waited to see if it was real, and it is.  I have lost a few pounds.  I am about to sell out my favorite vegetable.  And though it pains me to say this, I have to admit that maybe I was wrong.  Maybe you can eat too many carrots.  I am sorry to betray you.  But it has been weeks since I have had any.  So maybe it is true and there is a connection between those missing pounds and the missing carrots.

IMG_0341Since my last few projects are wrapped up, I needed to find something else to keep me busy in the afternoons (so I didn’t go buy more carrots).  So I rediscovered my crochet hooks and relearned single and double crochet.  I have NO idea what I will do with this new knowledge.  Make a scarf maybe.  Or a beanie if I can remember how to do it in rounds.

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.

  1. Everything in moderation, carrots included, or so I’ve been told.

    Hope the rediscovering of the crochet skills is fruitful. I can’t even remember the last time I picked up my hooks!

  2. Are those chocolate dipped animal crackers I spy? They look tasty!
