It's been a while since I've been on here but lots has happened in the last few months.
I'll start with the good news, I am now over 3,500 miles on my bike, I was hoping for 5,000 this year but I'm not sure if that will happen. I figure for my first year of riding I have done O.K.
It helps when you have such great people to ride with as I do. They have kept me going when I didn't/don't feel like riding, they are very supportive so it is all good.
Now for the bad news, me & the wife have had our troubles over our 26 years of marriage but last month she told me she was finished, done, didn't want to work on our marriage anymore so she moved out 3 weeks ago.
She took our two dogs but I wasn't going to split them up since they are getting old & our son goes to a private school that most kids live on campus & wanted to move into the dorm this year being his senior year so it has been very quite around here.
I am taking some classes called Divorce Care at a local church & they have been very helpful, that gives me something to do on Tues. nights then Weds. is our ride night with the club so a couple nights are filled.
Even though I really enjoy riding my bike it has been very hard to get motivated to get out, it is just so much easier to just set at home so I have to really work at getting myself out.
When the wife moved out I asked her if she felt like she had done everything she could have done & she said; no probably not but she was done.
Two years ago we separated for 7 months & I tried to better myself but it sounds like maybe I didn't do the right things & I am learning that I wasn't the best husband but I hope to work on that. Maybe not for this relationship but at least for me down the road.
I hope to be back checking out this great site & yes I will be O.K.!!!! I have a bike that is great therapy for me.
