Just out of curiosity, was your insurance quote for NYC, or Houston? I've heard of Progressive having insanely different rates for different places.
But about your real question.....I would stay away from a bike as your only mode of transportation for a while. Since you haven't ridden yet, you may find that it is not really for you. Remember that you'll have to make quite an investment in gear to begin with, especially if you plan on staying dry in bad weather. And you were correct to bring up groceries and laundry- plan on making alot of trips.
Don't try to keep up with my life, you'll only get hurt.
