My wife and I had a discussion the other day about being a one-car household. The idea is to get rid of her car, and she would drive the truck. I could ride my bike to work most days, or carpool with her when I need to. If she’s out of town for work, I would have the truck if I need it.
The only problem with this is my laziness. I drove to work on Monday and Tuesday. I did ride yesterday and today, but when I shower in the morning, I’m trying to come up with reasons to not ride the full commute.
My new route has made the commute less stressful and my recent lack of weight loss are both good motivators, but I’m guess I’m a generally lazy person. Only having one car available could give me another reason to ride my bike.
I still have a long-term goal of selling the house, and moving closer to work, then I could truly never drive again. In the meantime I need to be less lazy.
