I got up a bit late and had to do the calculus between the 30 minute drive and the 1 hour 5 minute travel on the bus. Expediency won out, so I drove. But it wasn't just expediency exactly. Part of it was that -- with my mom around -- I do tend to slink back into behaviors that are easier to understand. I try to be comprehensible.

I did manage to work out in the garage. First workout in three months according to the log book. This fear of reinjuring my back is difficult to navigate. I don't like pain.
