I really had a crappy bus commute this morning coming into work and texted Jim that I was going to blog about it tonight.
Until I came home and got off the bus, and got home and got the girls.
My mood changed.
We went for our pre-dinner walk and we took in the local Christmas lights of the immediate area that we walk in, where there was basically semi-detached, or “twin” houses.The girls are always happy to be out with me, especially in my zip fit bit stage, because they know we will WALK!
We did, and we paused on occasion to take the lights in. I have to watch with the big blow up snow globes, because Kasia gets scared of them.
Below are a few of the pictures that made a crappy morning and mediocre day into a fun night.
Schuylkill (pronounced School-kill) is probably an old Indian name. In Philadelphia, one of our rivers is called the Schuylkill. There is a county in Pennsylvania called Schuylkill.
And then there is our expressway running through Montgomery county and the county and city of Philadelphia-the Schuylkill Expressway.
Well, it was not an expressway this morning. It lived up to the second half of its’ name-kill.
There was a one car fatal accident this morning that made the Schuylkill a parking lot. I left for work and got on a public transit bus at 7:25am.
And I sat…and sat…
Traffic was bumper to bumper and then some, if possible. What normally would be a 40 minute commute took close to two hours and twenty minutes.Sad for the person who lost their life on the expressway.For the rest of us, it was avoided. The SEPTA transit authority opted to take the local route. The local route was bumper to bumper with everyone from Philadelphia and Montgomery county and I ran everyone, or so it seemed.
I will not miss this commute in the least.
I had a Dentist appointment today for a permanent filling over my root canal.
I just looked out over the window here in the office.
I called Donna, the receptionist and said…there is no way I can make a 3PM appointment.I am watching it come down at a clip now.I can not hardly think of what will be by 3PM.Long story short? Appointment for next Monday.
Let it snow, let it snow, as I will probably take 5 hours to get home….
