This year has brought a couple changes to my life. After 9 years together, Mr. EG and I were married in May.
Another change? Well, after 7 years of being car-less, we’ve bought a 2007 Prius.
This change has probably been the bigger of the two. I mean, we can actually buy more food than we can carry on the bus or in a backpack (or in a bag over my shoulder while riding my bike). I can actually be home for dinner with Mr. EG (3pm to midnight is a weird shift to work). We can take mini road trips along the coast! Or go camping in one of the many parks out here! The only drawback (besides now having a car payment each month) is that I haven’t ridden my bike since buying the car. And I think that’s why my knees are now sore. So bike riding will be thought of as cross training for this race that we signed up for in September. Should be fun. And we now have a way to get there.
