30 Days of No Car

For a whole month Scott and I are going to be taking the challenge of not using our car. I had originally wanted to do this in July, but since July was unbearably hot and we don't have air conditioning sometimes a ride in the car was our escape from the heat. 

Now that I don't need a car for work I'm confident we can do this. With the exception for nights when I have to work late. Sometimes I don't feel comfortable biking home alone late at night. Or if Scott has to photograph somewhere far. Out of the whole month that means the car should only be used a few times. It will be nice to see how much we spend on gas and how much better I get at biking long distances.

We will have to get our groceries and run all our errands by bike. 

We will have to bike or take the bus to work. 

Do you think we can do it?

Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
