I haven't forgotten you
I know I have been slacking this week with the blogs. But let me tell you, I have lost 3 hours a day at least in stupid traffic and travel time. I can't believe some people actually drive that far every day for a job. I love the location I am filling in at but no way would I ever drive this far everyday or sit in the traffic no matter how close I lived. All I could think about on the way home yesterday was how much time I was losing that I would not be able to get back. Time away from family, friends and yes, blogging. I get up at 5am every morning, take the dogs out, plug the iron in, eat breakfast, pack my lunch,feed the dogs, make sure they have bones and water, iron my uniform, speed read email, and then leave the house by 6:30, get to work at 8, work until 5 and then get home at 6:30 (if I'm lucky). By the time I get home I am exhausted from just the drive. I eat, take the dogs out, check email, maybe watch some tv, but I'm usually in bed between 8 and 9. I have had no life this week. Thank goodness it's a long weekend. I'm gonna need it. And then I have 2 days next week of this. Hopefully the new lady will work out and I can come home. At least then I'm only 7 miles from work, I carpool, so I don't have to drive (no traffic anyways), I leave the house at 6:20 and I'm home by 3 every day. I love it. Plenty of time for family and friends, and blogging. Plus my bike, which I'm sorry to say I haven't touched at all this week. I will have to make up for it this weekend. Boy I really am a whiner.....anyone got cheese to with it? I honestly don't know how you people who live with traffic on a daily basis do it. Everyone have a wonderful day!
