The job's already gotten busy enough that I'm already pining for the days this Spring when I wasn't working. I'm not one of those people who thinks that being busy is a virtue, but as the family's sole earner, the show must eternally go on.
And on and on it does go. The bike's showing its age. I'm assembling a new drive train for my bike in fits and starts. I have the cassette, I've ordered the chain, and I'll visit a shop to place an order on the chain rings this evening. All in, about $200.
Three reasons to be thankful:
- I've got a decent job, if only on a contract basis.
- Busy is certainly better than the alternative, job or not.
- The job will pay for the drive train, and the contract nature of the gig means I can claim such things as "vehicle repairs" since I'm using the bike daily to get to the client site.
