Let's see... I got to get a handle on this or this will drive me crazy and I will do something I will regret later. I can't be the only one going through this.
Some of you will remember my husband is a "Harley" rider... we took summer vacations on the rode, the most exciting one was "Sturgis" in South Dakota, the biggest daddy of the them all. I call my husband's bike the "Mistress", she is maroon, a 2004 FatBoy, my husband's pride and joy.
Since my husband's passing (May 27th) there has not been one visit from family that the subject of the bike has not come up... "are you going to sell that bike?" and how are you holding up? or... "I know someone who might be interested in buying Bob's harley", and are you doing OK? or... "you know you could put a lowering kit on that bike for yourself and learn to ride it", and how's work going for you? or... "how long do you think you will keep that bike?", I hope you are taking care of yourself...
The family just can't stand it... they can't stand the thought of this bike just sitting in our garage all covered up without a rider.
Well, I can't stand it either. And between you and me? It won't be one of them getting that bike either.
Not sure what I am going to do but Bob certainly didn't let any of them ride it before he died it certainly won't happen now after he died.
I am feeling the walls close in around me in lots of different directions, emotionally and through family just waiting and watching my every move...
Am I crazy? Grieving sucks.
Peace to all.
