The Whistler's Dream

Everybody needs a dream...
Mine is to go to Oklahoma and play whistles for The Pioneer Woman. (Having been invited, not in a "creepy stalker" kind of way, for the record.) Heck, I'd play in a pup tent in the backyard for the joy of the cows and critters. What can I say? I'm a fan.

Writing in bed, and Beka editing by ear. Really. The ear typed some letters. Really.

Things are moving along

Well, we are almost done with the fast. Actually, I'm pretty well done with it. The results were nowhere near what I was hoping for, but I've learned a lot over the journey. I know now that the next part of the path can't come from the fast. It has to come from something else. A change of my mind. A change of my life. The other pieces have to fall into place for me to reach my goal.

So, to that end, I'll be starting counseling in a week or so. Time to get some stuff sorted out in the ol' upper room. I'm not really looking forward to it, but I'm convinced that it's necessary.

And, exercise is becoming more and more of a priority. We're trying to get in a walk every day, and when my new bike gets here, that will increase my activity.

Did he say NEW BIKE???

Yup. Found a trike on eBay. Asked the builder some questions about it, and got some great answers. So, I'm sending him my measurements, and he's going to build the trike to my size and weight. For $800. In the meantime, my ReBike is heading down to the cycle shop up the street to get some TLC. When the trike arrives, Vicki will be riding the ReBike.

So, it's all good. I may not have reached my goal, or even come close, but I have made some choices that will help me stay on the path. And, even if it takes a couple of years, I will stay on the path, moving ever-so-slowly forward, until I reach the goal.

Which is pretty much what every follower of Christ is to do, right? :-)

That's awesome about the bike. I've always been really intrigued by alternative bikes, and having one built yourself is the coolest.
