I'm Feeling Better Now

Man, the last few weeks I've been getting really cranky. (Shut up Dave)

My permit expired and stuff kept getting in the way of me and the DMV. There were a few days that I almost rode to work anyway. The rebel in me said, "Go ahead, it's not that far, you'll be fine." But then the responsible mom in me said, "This could be the day that something goes wrong. Think about the consequences of your actions. Do you really want to screw up and then never be able to ride again?"

So I left my girl alone until I could get legal again. She was sad in the garage, especially when Dave would pull Tramp in after a nice little ride. I was sad and getting cranky. I hated even walking into the garage and seeing Patience sitting there with that sad little puppy dog headlight staring at me. Patience, mine was wearing thin.

Finally the end of last week I was able to get into the DMV and make my world right again. I was finally able to get out a bit this weekend. No epic rides, but enough to start boosting the mood meter.

Now I just have to get off my ass and take the ride part of the test so I don't have to deal with this crap again!

I rode my bike (bikes) for years and years with no DL. You did right because you are the kind of person you who would get pinched as soon as you left the driveway. LOL!

Good girl! Your like me... never got a warning... always a ticket.

Hopefully, you can move this up on the list of "to do's" and get that license! You NEED your road therapy!

Ann said...

Just do it!

Annabelle is now up and running, so I have no excuses. I have to sign up for the course shortly. I'm being badgered on a daily basis.

B.B. said...

Lady R- It is on the list! I just need to get it done!

Ann- Yeah! Just do it! I really want to take the course, but I can't afford it right now.

You'll never regret going about something the right way. Main thing is to stay focused and get it done. I know I need more scooter time myself. Stay at it and keep making us all proud of your progress B.B.

Ronman- hey long lost friend! :) Thanks for the encouragement. I hope you're doing well!

IHG said...

You've been riding for a while now. You'll ace the riding part of the test and be so happy that you just got it over with! :)

Go ahead and get legal. With your riding experience it should be a breeze and you'll be glad you did. No more looking over your shoulder.
Up here in BC they do spot checks for motorcycle endorsements and lots of people get caught in these road-blocks

"Think about the consequences of your actions..."

If only more people considered that statement once in a while...

Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing. I laugh because there are people out there like Dave who will say 'screw it,' do it anyway, and get away with it forever, and then there are others who try it once and get bagged. Seems like I'm the one who always gets caught.

Sometimes going with "C.Y.A." is a sound policy. Hope you get your endorsement before you LP runs out again.
