I’ll admit it’s premature to make an assessment, but I love riding the bus. I get to work less stressed and I get home at the end of the day less stressed.
We’re saving money and we’re planning to sell the second car, if it becomes possible. Riding for free is a benefit provided to faculty, staff and students at our university. I’ve never used it before and now I’m thinking I was incredibly silly to not go for it. Hindsight and all that stuff…
Anyway, I’m wondering if this won’t help me deal. It forces a time-frame to each day, due to the bus schedule. It gives me time to myself, in a daily grind where it’s difficult to find some “me” time. And there is a camaraderie for bus riders that is really humorous. I simply like it. How funny to discover the icing on this particular cake!
Well, that’s all the time I have. I have thread postings and two small children to get ready for bed. We have a new respiratory bug that has descended on the small dude and it’s creeping over the rest of us too. I just want to ask fate, “Really? Why are you beating up on us, yet again??” This sucks. Yes, I know we have depressed immune systems from the Great Mahoney Influenza Epidemic of February 2011, but this is ridiculous.
Sleepy time. Cheers and wishing good health – moonfire
