Not being one to dwell too long on things, I decided to act on a desire I’ve had for a while and to purchase a Beach Cruiser bike (think Pee Wee Herman). A client of mine was in yesterday and mentioned that in the Phoenix area there is a group that does scheduled rides on weekends. Now, I have not ridden a bike in almost 20 years. The next scheduled ride is during Arizona Bike Week. Not so sure about that (think Pee Wee goes into the biker bar and almost gets beaten up). Tequila!
Yesterday was tough. I’ve been able to throw myself into work but yesterday afternoon a client called. She is a sweetheart of a person but very chatty. I know when she calls that I’ll be on the phone for 20 to 30 minutes. January is our busy time of year and sometimes I am just way too nice to say I need to go. So I sat on the phone with her and I could feel my anxiety rising. Finally I got off the phone and back to work. I sat and bawled at my desk after my boss left. Then I called my Mother. We talked for a while and then I went home. She and my sisters are planning on coming out in March which is something to look forward to. I texted my guy friend that is going through the divorce and at this point he is probably wishing I would just get a life. I probably shouldn’t be treating him as one of my girlfriends. It wasn’t too long ago I was getting the ‘my life is over’ 2am texts from him but women just have it all over men when it comes to the listening department.
This morning my Mom sent me an email and this is what it said:
Just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of you. . .hope you are feeling better. Keep on top of that fever – call by Friday if you still feel as though you have it. Well, it finally snowed here today – just kind of wet and slushy…kind of a mess getting in. . .
I’m looking forward to you being a happy girl again – you have a very good spirit and i just want you to be happy as you deserve to be!!
I love you,
It was a nice thing to come into this morning. I also told my boss about what was going on. He said that I should consider he and his wife as friends and to let him know if I needed anything. I thought that was incredibly kind.
At least there are some things to look forward to. Athletica and I are in a race in a few weeks that is being held up in Sedona. She is using some credit card points so we can stay at a really nice resort. It should be fun.
I suppose change will always be scary. I’ve spent the morning feeling like I could puke but there is definitely hope. The song below is on my phone and I play it in the morning . It makes me feel like I should be jumping up and down for joy. 🙂
