My Kia was hauled off on a flatbed truck just a few minutes ago. I have a wad of cash to deposit tomorrow morning. It’s done. I will miss that poor little car.
My commute today was interesting. I rode 10.5 miles on the way to work, and caught the bus for some of the trip. I hadn’t used the bike racks on the buses before today.
On the way home, I felt good, and rode the whole way. I did get rained on, but I was dressed well enough for it.
I also ran two errands on the bike today. During my lunch hour, I rode to a downtown bike shop to get a spare tube. After getting home from work, I did some grocery shopping. Fewer people here in Charlestown look at me funny. They must be getting used to seeing me hauling groceries on the bike.
I am a bit nervous about not having a car. I do intend to buy another car at some point, but not yet. I’m using what little money I have to pay my taxes. I didn’t know I was going to owe money until today. Selling the car became necessary to pay my taxes on time.
