This 'n' that

I thought I'd better post or I'll forget that I ever had a blog. It's been a looooong summer. Not bad, but just long. I'm very excited about September and fall coming. It always gives me more focus and a sense of purpose. Here is the summer summary:


1. I survived the bike rally. I'm so happy that I did it, but it was a painful, difficult experience. I was coping with a bad knee at first (fixed with a combo of physio and a kick-ass massage), and then unbelievable chafing. No details there except to say that I felt like my bike seat was covered in broken glass. The final day I finally rode pain-free and got the hang of biking.

2. My sister is now transitioned and is living life to her fullest. Everyone finally seems to have adjusted/accepted the change - especially the kids who immediately corrected me when I [out of habit] once said, "Go ask your dad". 

3. I am dating. He was my bike buddy who I met at a mutual friend's brunch and who then helped me train on Tuesdays. He came to pick me up in Montreal after the rally and we became more than bike buddies. And so it goes. All good though. Really good.

Looks like you've been having a good summer (except the chafing part, of course).

I missed you!

Glad you're back and feeling fine. Sounds like you made some nice headway and changes, and got through the bike pain OK. Here's to fall!

#3: Sure you didn't get the cause of your chafing mixed up???

It's great to hear you're doing fine and that summer has been quite an adventure for you! Congrats on the bike ride! Now you've got toned thighs that you can put to good use! Don't forget to use a helmet when you go for a ride with your bike buddy ;)

You know, the other night I commented, but it didn't take. I've been having trouble with my keyboard whenever I write anything on a website ever since I moved to England.

I'm happy to hear things are going well.
