Before I say what I’m feeling today, I’d like to say that I am loving having my wife here. She’s my safe place and it’s so good to have her near me again. We had a great day exploring the National WW2 museum and then exploring the French Quarter on the bike.
Today was a good test for me.
I’ve had some good days and was feeling really good about my progression. What was worrying me and hanging over my head was that I really hadn’t experienced much stress to really test me.
Riding through downtown New Orleans was just what I needed. Said tongue in cheek.
Having my wife on the back of the bike, being close to cars, crazy pedestrians, bicycles and a myriad of other crazy things were really working my mind over time.
I worked hard at keeping calm. It doesn’t feel like a huge victory and I have to say that tonight I am really burned out. A very taxing day. I have three more days of this and I might just crack.
Some pics from the museum today, including one of my great uncles name on the wall of lost submariners. He was on the USS Grayback.
