One of those days

The commute today was a struggle. 

First, I had to get up, then after I left the house, I saw that I forgot to close down the top of the pannier, so I had to stop and do that, then I had to stop again and reclose it because I had not fastened it correctly the first time.  Then I had to stop at intersections because there were so many more cars than usual, then I hit a bump in the road that I knew was there and always try to avoid. 

A struggle all morning. 

And on top of it all, I had to go to work when I got there…..  will it ever end??

Stay happy,

    Sounds like most of my Mondays! Some days, I just want to stop everything I am doing and sit quietly in a corner before anything ELSE goes wrong. Hang in there!

      I am usually out around 0600, so I get my bad rides over with. At least no other cyclists were around to dart out in front of me and all the walkers stayed on the sidewalks. Thanks!
