New Bikes

Hi All... Jeff and I got a new bike each today from Wally World... We took Bri with us and Kora stayed home.. We each got a Mongoose 21 speed seat suspension bike for 129.00 each.. Mine is white and pink and his is black and red.. We are going to try and save on some gas money when we both get used to riding bikes again..

Neither one of us has been on a bike since Kora was about a year old.. Its been a while.. And I am paying for it. It just shows how out of shape I am. We rode home from Wally World and then decided to go to the the grocery store after the girls went to bed.. Sure I am still having a hard time breathing 45 minutes later after coming home and relaxing.. YIKES!!

But if I remember I will take photo's of them tomorrow and edit this post with pix of them. I need the excercise so I am so looking forward to doing this.. The only problem I see is that I work 10 miles from home and that is 20 miles a day.. and Jeff only works 2.5 miles from home so he has it easier. but at least with him taking the bike we are saving what he's not spending on gas..and also if us girls want to go to the mall we can do it a little quicker now than walking.

the girls are so looking forward to going out for bike rides with us. I have been looking forward to this day for a long time. I miss riding bikes for miles at a time. i bet I will be able to ride my bike to work soon but not right now. Need to get my butt adjusted to riding again and my breathing.. Its still chilly outside so that didnt help any either..

Anyway I suppose I need to go warm up and see about a snack. i am a little bit hungry after that little jaunt.. Talk to you all soon.. I will try to make rounds tomorrow sometime before work.. Miss you all terribly. I know some of you have either quit blogging or just slowed down but those that have quit I miss you terribly. Those that have slowed down I keep going back for a new post. Take care and have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

This is excellent, Tweets. It's good for the environment, it's saves money on gas & maintenance, and it's great exercise! Good move!

Hey! I had to slow down because I am so sick - I made it through the whole family's flu for two months around the holidays, thought I was in the clear,then it hit hard, have bronchitis and pneumonia both - can't do my usual.

Bikes sound like so much fun - I am back to trying to plan my runs for one day a week - gas and food are to high, I hope something gives with either or both soon.

How about the adventureous couple Candy and Stagg! Was so good to see them for a while.
