loveliberate,

Thanks for the comments. I wouldn't have posted if I was concerned about harsh or judgmental responses! I'm pretty open minded and enjoy constructive criticism and take most things that way rather than being offended.

About my wife, that's an interesting point: "What's her motivation?" That's a key to it I had not even considered, ironically enough. The fact she is "balancing" the views of this relative and mine, there likely is really no motivation for becoming vegan. It's disappointing, but it's frankly most probable, otherwise she would have strongly held to one view or the other. I'll ask her straight up; I've frankly never discussed her motivations...

I'm already cycling again and feeling great, getting some fun rides in and commuting to work each day and dumping the car deal. I appreciate your comments and such. I'm eating vegan again and frankly have been after we returned home from the holidays December 26. That's not saying much, but my motivations are health-related more than ethically motivated (don't shoot me), but I absolutely respect and appreciate those who go vegan for animal rights and ethical reasons.

I would also still like to visit Oregon soon; we are also living paycheck to paycheck but should ease up in a couple months due to career improvements...maybe that would be a good time.

I appreciate your feedback and it's great to talk to you all again!

I'm sure you can combine the three afore-mentioned reasons; I am for one doing it for all that. :)
