Today was super effing exhausting. Didn’t sleep well, a mosquito kept us awake for a while (only animal I’d intentionally kill. Glad to report I got it!) but mostly it was because Tony (one of the Christophers) had a lot of flashbacks and was not very successfully trying to deal with those. No real harm done though so there’s that.
He talked to our therapist today and she said how brave he was (we agree!). She also said we in general are on the right track and that was really good to hear, especially on a day like this!
Then we made a long trip to get to a specialised bike shop for our recumbent bike. After quite a while (procrastinated by shopping elsewhere first) we even plucked up the courage to go inside! Talked to the bike repair person and asked all the stuff we needed to ask! Even asked follow-up questions! With some eye contact! Sadly they don’t have time for our bike until after our tour, but that’s OK. At least they don’t want 200€ like the one in the other bike shop we tried last week (wtf). Our bike is kinda OK the way it is, it could just be even better. But since we’re not going on that huge tour in France where we’d have to keep up with the group, it’s not going to be a problem.
Anyways, we just got home now and are really exhausted, it was quite a lot, especially with Tony and his flashbacks near the front the hole day and pretty dissociated and so on.
But we got stuff done.
