Last year my mother in law invited my family and me to an event called “Roadeo” held by the MTA of NYC.
I don’t work for the MTA or care for the delays their services gives us at times so waking up early for an event like this was a no go at first. I had no expectations for this and I learned I was wrong when we arrived late afternoon last year missing almost all of it.
My kids were upset and so was I, I vowed to make it early this year and we did just that on Saturday, Sept 16th!
I didn’t do it crossing anyone over or dunking like Lebron, I can’t jump anyway.
I took a bad step while running up the court and boom, I was down for two weeks with a severe case of plantar fasciitis. It basically felt like I was constantly stepping on a lego but multiply the pain by 100.
The pain sucked but the thought of not being able to do things with my kids sucked even more.
I put my daughter to bed 5 nights out of the week.
I turn off the overhead light, turn on the lamp, put her now 19 month old self in her crib, go and microwave her almond milk with a pinch of turmeric, give her her three kisses, and grab my tote bag and head home. Those 15–20 minutes are some of the best minutes I get throughout my day.
