The Commuting Life

I’m still getting back in the swing of the whole commuting thing. Even after a month, it doesn’t seem quite right or natural. I have a hard time getting it all together and getting my self out the door at a reasonable time. This morning, I assembled my lunch and then left it in the kitchen, while also managing to leave my cellphone in yesterday’s pants.

I also kind of miss the days of very little driving. When I first got this new car (2002 Honda Civic, new to me but not new) I was gassing up every 4 to 6 weeks. Having to do it every week is kind of a drag and now I lose my lower carbon footprint bragging rights. These are the trade-offs one must make in this life.
