In theory, living with my parents comes with several perks. I get to see my family every day, not worry about paying rent, eat cooked meals. What’s not to love?
My daily commute, that is what.
Since my drive falls during rush hour, I am on the road anywhere from 3 to 4 hours on any given day getting to and from work.
It was much worse before I got glasses. I’d squint into the darkening sky and feel tired and cranky. Then I got glasses and everything got better. (No, seriously, lack of eye strain is the BEST. #Iloveglasses)
The other perk of my job is that my boss doesn’t have me come when he is on vacation. And as he is mostly retired, he goes on vacation a lot. I have yet to go more than 3 days driving in at a time.
Anyway, I’m apartment hunting and plotting my return to Madison. Until then, I’m grateful for:
- vehicles that run
- an awesome job
- retired bosses
