12 errands, 12 days, using 7 out of 11 categories, none more than twice, two at night. Must show photos or proof of errand, and night errands must show lights.

Breakfast/Lunch (See note from Sarah on previous blog)
2/11 Starbucks North Point
2/17 Starbucks Fox Mill
Community Meeting (in this case PTSA) 2/09
Category 5 -- NOT USED
|It doesn't look like it was at night because the shopping center|
is way over-lit. But as soon as I left the parking lot, my lights
were barely adequate.
2/11 North Point Giant
2/17 Fox Mill Giant
Any store NOT a grocery store
Office Depot 2/11
Personal Care and Health

So, since that was exhausting to re-live and for you to peruse, here are my quick lessons learned overall.
1. This was a lot of fun. Shows me how easy it is to do errands via the bike.
2. When I'm challenged, it is suddenly NOT too cold or too wet to ride.
3. There IS such a thing as too dark for me to ride and I know that now.
4. I'm not going to invest in high dollar lights to remedy #3. My schedule is such that I can do all my errands in the day.
5. No dinners via bicycle since I'm the only one in the family riding bikes. Maybe during the summer I can get my son to go with me. Of course I can - if I'm buying dinner!
6. After looking at other Errandonneurs' blogs, I am so glad I live in the South. Even though it was 26 as I was riding home, I wasn't jumping snow drifts or dodging ice patches.
More observations tomorrow. Probably not a bit more insightful than these. ;-) Happy Presidents' Day!
