Today I Feel Powerful
Sunday, October 02, 2011
I rode thirty miles today. Thirty miles. Despite the fact that it was the goal that I set for myself, I am amazed that I did it. DH did it as well which is totally awesome. He had a blast as well. I couldn't stop smiling. To some, it might not seem like that long a distance, but to me it was huge. Also, I think it might help with getting my mind reset to that fact that I can achieve my goals. To know that I can propel myself that far under my own power was just well a powerful feeling. Truth is, I really wanted to go even more, but then I reminded myself that I need to be able to function tomorrow.
In little boy business, L continues to have trouble behaving in school. However, he is trying and can actually do the work - just needs someone on top of him all the time. We are also selling Boy Scout popcorn, as he is a cub scout. I get to look forward to a camping trip in a few weeks. When we were bike riding last weekend, he asked me if I would sign him up for the Tour de France. Today, I discovered that a nearby town is having a child's bike race on the 15th. I can't decide whether to tell him about it. I want to let him do it (it is for the under 10 crowd), but at the same time, I don't want him to be devastated for not winning. S is enjoying his 3 hour a day Pre-K. His teacher says he always makes good choices. He has been wanting to go hiking so we did that yesterday. He loved it as we let him set the pace for a good portion of the trip. I take him to school occasionally on the bike, but will have to do so more as my van broke down again. (Good thing I can ride far, huh?)
