Who could'a guessed that a casual comment in an email to my wife yesterday would have generated enough interested on her part to investigate the Primal urges I have been feeling? Alright, not those kind of urges, but rather that I had finished the Primal Blueprint book and mentioned my interest in pursuing this fantastic life change ideal.
We ride to and from work together (what a huge bonus to our relationship) and when we rode home last evening, she turned to me and asked, "What do you want to talk about?" Well, I suggested a date this weekend and she deflected my comment with a question about going Primal. Well, you coulda' knocked me out. Well, it seems that she was motivated by my comment to research Primal during the slow parts of her afternoon.
Well, I was so excited, but before I could regurgitate the information that I'd learned from my reading, she announced that she was on board with the plan and asked, "when do we begin?" OMG, I want to marry this woman! (Wait, we already did that!) I was soooo stressed that she would think this was another one of my kooky plans (yes, there have been more than a few) that I was freaking out about how to tell her about my plans.
Relief flooded through me and I was euphoric. This is so fantastic. I have more than a few hobbies that she tolerates without really being interested in what I am doing but this is so much more than a hobby because of the depth and scope of the requirements as well as the effects. I was fully prepared to embark on this solitary journey but to find out that I have a willing partner is, well, wonderful, but to find out my best friend and partner is my companion is beyond wonderful. Who coulda' guest it?
So, we planned a investigative trip to the nearby markets to discover the availability of supplies and will be moving toward initiating the start of our journey, which we plan to "ease" into to prevent system shock. Oh, happy days ahead!
