Counting My Blessings

Recently there was a big relocation at my office. My new awesome commute now:

  • is octupled in time and distance
  • require a fill up every other day instead of every other week
  • keeps me on my toes about filling up since 2/3 of the travel distance include no gas station in sight
  • smells like cow manure half of the time
  • covers my beloved vehicle, Billy, in squashed bugs
  • automatically changes the hip hop radio station to country midway through the trip, which is almost okay because my commute also...
  • is deafening me with the harsh winds against Billy's soft top, therefore...
  • gives me a headache (physical, not just metaphorical) on a daily basis
  • is mostly a single lane highway so there is no avoiding trucks nearby that can do this:

It left shattered glass inside the cab, and I'm grateful that this didn't happen where the bursting glass could have cut my face or my eyes instead. At least I have a husband who cleaned up all the glass for me, and I'm not spending 3 1/2 hours on the road daily like someone else I work with!


  1. aw, sad times GT! stay safe on that road, ya hear?

  2. oh WOW, I'm glad you're OK even if your car isn't. :(

  3. Eek, what a pain! But the photo didn't load in my feed reader, so I'm actually happy to see the damage is so much less worse than I immediately feared..... (Silver lining?) Good luck with that nasty commute.
