If I had to commute . . . .

farther than my laundry room, the walk out to the barn or the quarter of a mile to the hog barns - I would be exhausted!  I drove to the north side of Indy today, I am not afraid to drive in the big city or on interstates - advice from my Dad and Chris "it's the other drivers that you need to worry about, as long as you are paying attention and being careful" but it was snowing and icy today and well:

I grip the steering wheel at 10 and 2 - very tightly!

I am not sure I breathe!

I talk out loud to myself and other drivers around me!

I CAN SING ANYTHING - I normally sing in the car but when I am nervous I seem to know the words to every song on the radio and can really belt them out!

I stopped at the truckstop and there were several customers who did not speak English very well and I immediatly thought to myself:  "If they can't speak english they probably can't drive in snow and ice"!  I have no idea what one has to do with the other but it was a legitimate fear in my mind!

Now I have to do it all over again and get home - you have no idea how glad I am that I don't have to do this everyday - here's to hoping that everyone on the roads right now speaks fluent English!

My hats off to all that commute everyday - God Bless You!


  1. It is a fun world...that commute world.

  2. I agree with you on that one, today would have been horrible.

  3. I don't miss my 45 minute drive into the su both ways! :-P

  4. I am so fortunate to have a really good job. Too bad I hate the commute! As soon as I can find a way to make the same salary from home, I'll do it. Any ideas?

  5. I have a girlfriend that commutes and hour each day...bless her heart!!

  6. Since my office moved to the other side of town nearly a year ago, I feel like I LIVE in my car now! It's not the mileage, it's the STOP LIGHTS!
    I should count them one day.
    I do an hour and 15 minutes each way.
    What really stinks is this has forced me to shift grocery shopping to weekends, because I can't get thru the store and pick up the kids on time!
    I envy your "commute"!
