No. 1 — I forgot the sunscreen! It actually looks WORSE than this and definitely feels worse. We decided to head out on a 40-mile bike ride on Independence Day, and once we got on the York County Rail Trail, I remembered that I forgot to put on sunscreen. That nagging feeling for an hour as we tried to get ready? Yup, it was that. Now I am paranoid about skin cancer, especially since I saw this video a while back.
No. 2 — I have decided to head out on a 100-mile bike ride. Yup, I am crazy. I am increasing my mileage per week by 10 miles until I reach 100. I am contemplating going from 80 to 100 and skipping 90 miles, but we will have to wait and see in the coming weeks. I am currently at 40 miles (see above.)
No. 3 — Fourth of July was pretty low-key. We went on the aforementioned bike ride, did a few errands, got some food and watched a few fireworks from our porch. (The Revs stadium is nearby.)
I mentioned to Jamieson that in years past, I would have a family barbecue, and we would swim all day and then set off mini-fireworks. He said the same. Now that we are on our own, but kid-less and house-less, it is pointless to do these things unless we are invited to one. So, we did what we wanted to do, on our day off together. And that sounds perfect to me (except the sunburn, of course.)
