Bike To Work & School Day — 100% Participation

It’s being kinda wet.

Today is Bike to Work Day and Bike to School Day in Idaho’s Wood River Valley.

And it’s raining. *whimper*

Hmm, since my writing office is at home, I’m already at work! But… but… that would be wussy. Terrible example for the kids.

“You’re coming, aren’t you, Mom?” asked my daughter.

“Yes! Yes, I am,” I replied.

So, my business had 100% participation! And so did our family.

I am back home now. Pockets unloaded of swag, my wet bicycling things are hanging to dry. And I’m back in my fuzzy robe, warming up. All in a day’s work, play, and parenting.

The 5ive Guys invited me to play

Making lists and checking each other with snark is what the guys at The 5ive Blog are all about. Each week they choose a topic, publish their lists and then give each other “yeah, whatever dude” commentary back. They invited me to play along this week and even let me pick the topic. The winner: Top 5ive Personal Sports. As in, what sports do we enjoy participating in? Being *ahem* gentlemen, they let me go first.


Did my husband and I really sail across the Pacific? We did. Read more about it…
