I Want to Ride It Where I Like

Here is a window, out in the middle of nowhere.

Good gawd! I feel like this blog has become me just detailing all the mundane crap I do every day, and I apologize for that. I'm going to try to actually write here and there in the next couple of weeks. Of course, today will be more detailing of boring crap that I did today, but it's all I got right now.

Today I was actually able to ride my bike to work and back. It was sooooo nice. It took me about 12 minutes to get to work. It normally takes me at least 35 minutes to walk it. I also just like to ride, so I can't wait until I get to do it every day. It's supposed to rain every day for the rest of the week. I guess I'll just have to wait until next week to make it my routine again.

I also ran my 6 mile route after work and that made me very, very happy....And a little tired. It's been a while since I was able to work-out so much in one day. I should probably ease into it a little more, but I'm obviously not smart enough for that.

I did give myself a little couch time and watched some house hunting type shows on HGTV and then finally finished sanding and painting two spots on my kitchen walls where there used to be a back splash with the old counters, but won't be with the new ones. Now, I'm more than ready to go read myself to sleep...I've heard In Cold Blood isn't the best book to read before bed, but you know me, I like to live on the edge.

That's great you are finally using your bike.. Hope the rain doesn't last too long.. I think I could share some sunshine with you and that way you can still ride to work..

I know that I can walk to work, it's just getting up in enough time that's tricky. But I am so loving this warmer weather.

My commute is about 12 miles, so I could bike, but it would be soooo scary. I do think about how good it would feel though.

And I like hearing about your day to day stuff! I like seeing how the more energetic live :-)

Isn't that the purpose of all blogs?

I wish I had the energy you did!

Yeah, what Brando said!

My commute to school is about the same as yours to work. I like to ride if at all possible if only because I don't have to worry about parking.

Mrs, I would love you to throw some of your sunshine my way.

Tara, I know. I'm so not a morning person, so it takes a lot to get me to wake up any earlier to walk to work.

LauraB., A 12 mile bike ride is a pretty intense commute. I don't blame you for not making it.

Brando, A little, I guess. Maybe I'm just apologizing that those details aren't more interesting.

MrManuel, I don't always have a ton of energy. I just have that much to do everyday.

Johnny, That's my big problem too. We don't have free parking where I work, and I don't want to have to mess with plugging meters, or go broke just commuting.
