Jeremy is having a love affair with biking. We talk a lot about bicycles, hamstring flexibility, time trials, power meters, and Strava. There is always a youtube video playing in the background of some bike race where Jeremy urges me to come over and “take a look at this!” He’s signing up for week long bike trips, bike weekends and dreaming of the next bicycles he’s going to buy. It’s good, mostly, until I see how many weekends and summer weeks I’m trying to schedule Edda-care around Jeremy’s excellent biking adventure. He wants to add days onto business trips to CA to bike in Napa or near Monterrey. Then I start to get snippy and whiney and petulant. I know it’s not entirely fair, I have my own things I want to do that take time from the family and result in things that are logistically complicated. Anyways, I start making a fuss about the biking and then he reminded me that his work work (meaning his regular day job) is so frustrating and discouraging to him right now that he needs to divert some optimism and excitement to something else – so that something else is biking. Then I let him be. At least until the next time I get irritated.
Vince made some cheese/corn dip concoction for our dinner party this evening.
Rachael came over for dinner! Somehow we talked a lot about summer camp.
I’ve started on my 2nd quilt. This one is black to match my mood. 😉
