Hi, i just wanted to share with all, or the two of you that actually read this blog, my life in the off season.
I am reading this…http://www.simplicityparenting.com/ And, in trying to better my kids lives, i’ve also improved my own. The past few months i have been concentrating on our house and family since i had taken some time away to race. I have begun to simplify everything from my sock drawer, to the food we eat. Toys, well a lot of them had to go. I just keep stuffing everything into the guest bedroom hoping for a glorious garage sale in the spring!
All this simplifying has opened more room in our lives for creativity. The kids have been arts and crafts machines and i have managed to do a painting or two.
This weekend i will do a ride with some girlfriends for 2-3 hours and that will wrap up a week of training for now. yup, one ride.
Now i’m dreaming of chicken coops, espaliering dwarf apple trees, and ordering seeds for the garden. First seeds go in the ground March 16th, a tradition for me for some reason.
Had a meeting this morning and signed my first deal of the season and am proud to say i will be wearing Zeals again this year.
I am planning my SUP season right now and discussing river trips and such. The sponsorship search is still on for the 2010/11 Cyclocross season and i am excited for whats to come. I will statigically plan my season around trying to make the Worlds Team, this my #1 goal!
Until then my life as a Mom, Wife, and Hairstylist will keep me plenty busy.
Stay tuned as a Jackson Hole ski trip in February with the HBP girls is sure to make for some great pics!
