Today was Get Back on That Bike Day chez Jessmonster.  I admit, I was reasonably terrified.  I defy that bit of folk wisdom about never forgetting how to ride a bike – and I had bruises last summer to prove it – so it was a challenge getting back on after half a year of whining that it was too cold, rainy, windy, etc. to ride. Thankfully, half a year is not enough time for even me to forget how, and I had a lovely, sunshiney, slightly sweaty ride to the library and back (nearly 4 miles total).

Apparently though, one measly bike ride is enough to exhaust my energies for the day and leave me unable to complete any reading for school.  Which is really what I OUGHT to be doing.  But, oh look, it’s almost time to go to work.
