Max is doing fine – he has been in great spirits and has kind of figured out how to play and move around with his heavy cast on. He keeps pointing to it and asking “waaa daa?”. He is at daycare and doing fine
Thing #1 – Commuting sucks
I am not sure how some of you do it, but I really hate commuting. It isn’t necessarily the time though – it is the time spend sitting in stupid traffic. I am only about 20 minutes from work, but with traffic (which is made worse by construction) my drive can be over an hour. For those from Ottawa, you probably know exactly where I get stuck – the split. It literally takes me almost 40 minutes to go maybe 5 KM. But once you get through the split and past downtown there is zero traffic.
Thing #2 – Commuting time can change
For the first few days of commuting, it took me over an hour to get to work. Today (using the same exact route and pretty much the same exact time) – 40 minutes. People were even surprised that I walked in early! Reason? I don’t know, maybe people wanted Thursday off? Or perhaps they learned how to merge properly (doubt it)? But – it wasn’t too bad at all! I did manage to get to work early enough to eat my oatmeal in a Cookie Butter breakfast!
Thing #3 – Yay new car!
It was a very smart idea to purchase a new to us vehicle over the summer. I drive roughly 75Km a day in my commuting adventure and having a newer car compared to the jeep means that I get way more mileage for my $$. I basically will have to fill up once a week. If I was taking my jeep it would probably mean two fill ups a week – yikes! It is also nice to have A/C and iPod access too 🙂
