My wife and I talk a lot about liking the idea of something, versus actually liking the reality what that idea actually is/entails. Example – I really like the idea of blogging. In reality though, it’s way down on my priority list of things to do. And blogging is about to fall a whole lot lower on the list. In two very short months, I’m going to have a teenage daughter and a ten year old son. Yup, we’ve been “selected” for this adoption!
I haven’t really been spending much time on this blog lately anyway. Nor have I been spending much time training, which was the original impetus for this blog in the first place. I have a triathlon in two weeks (my second ever), and I finally put on a pair of swimming goggles last night for the first time in seven months. That swim lasted five whole minutes. Luckily it’s going to be a wetsuit swim, so at least I shouldn’t drown. Assuming I can get my wetsuit on, that is. The wetsuit was tight when I bought it – tack on some extra “winter” weight, and I thought I broke the zipper when I had my wife help me try to stuff myself into it last night.
Anyway, so I’ll probably blog a recap from that race, but there’s a chance that will be the last post on here. I don’t know everything that comes along with fatherhood, but I’m pretty sure that it won’t come with a supply of extra hours in each day.
