Yesterday morning, J and I had two errands to run:
1. post office to mail care packages to our happy campers
2. library to turn in books and check out some new ones
To make it an adventure, we decided to ride our bikes. We stuck to the sidewalks because I’m not ready to have my 7yo riding in traffic (not even small town traffic). And based on how cautiously he rode on the sidewalks he’s not ready either. We went so, so very slowly. So slowly that I had a hard time staying balanced on my bike (my backpack full of books & packages didn’t help I suppose).
It took us more than 90 minutes to make the 3.5 mile round trip. It was certainly not the most expedient use of my time. But it just might have been the best use of my time all day.
