It’s been a trying few weeks; so many challenges as children transition from young adult, to adult. On some evenings, it definitely feels like everyone is not growing up fast enough, and yet, still other evenings, it still seems like they are growing too fast (and we are aging) way.to.fast.
But in the silence of the peepers and the wind chimes, I sat here and realized that soon, in the proverbial “tomorrow”, they all won’t be around; so tonight, I’ll just be thankful that I still see this.
It is the little things that bring joy, like your parrot / dog, who sits on your shoulder and watches you eat iceberg lettuce, and chews loudly in your ear when you give her chunks of lettuce to enjoy.
Today @amandarachael and I decided to go on a date.. so we bought some Costco pizza and went and sat next to the mustang, on the ground, in the parking lot, and had our pizza dinner. What a great memory!
Over the last year, it’s been pretty hard to not put on a couple COVID pounds… or, let’s be honest, about 20 COVID pounds; and as of late, when I’m looking in the mirror, and I say “Man, I’ve gotten pretty fat”, my wife @amandarachael is quick to say “You’re not fat”…..
Well, today, I went to the chiropractor (long overdue), and the chiropractor says… hrm… “you’re kind of fat, that’s gonna hurt your back”.
AND Amanda is sitting in the chair, right next to me, and she didn’t jump to defend my honor! Where were you when I needed you?!?
It’s hard to describe the pride as a parent when I look forward, (or behind) and see my first born on his first ride. After 8 hours of his second day of the course, he spent an hour and a half with me training in the neighborhood.
I still have two more riders to go in the house… someday we will have our own MC.
