Saturday: Another goal

IMG_2175Checked off the list for 2012.  I rode this bad boy to my sisters house!  It was one of my goals when we moved here.  To become proficient enough on my bike to ride to her house.  And I made it!  It was a couple of miles (almost 3) longer than I expected so I had NO problem with hitching a ride back.   It was close to 9 miles one way.

And another piece of good news is that there was NO knee or quad pain involved during or after.  So I hope that I will be back in my kicks and running the canal next week.

IMG_0346The rest of Saturday I spent volunteering at the basket pickup, which was fun. HOLY BANANAS.  No kidding.  Way too many bananas.  Then the bike ride and then nothing.  And I mean nothing. There was nothing to do and nothing on tv to watch (was Beth always so whiny in Cloverfield?).  Even my cupcakes came out like nothing. Which means I will have to make cookies instead.  You get the idea.



About nfoste2245

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.
