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??
