That is a very good thing...

I’m glad that hellish commute will end. This afternoon we went to a graduation across town and needed to use the freeways. It wasn’t even the rush hour yet and the traffic was terrible. Even when driving 10 MPH over the posted limit others were passing around me and cutting in and out of the lanes. I wished so much that we had good public transportation that we could have taken. Hate driving in traffic and hate public transportation issues both. It’s best to live close to where you need to work and be most of the time.

The good thing was we got there early and had great seats. Also everyone enjoyed the graduation! I get so proud of all the new young adults who complete their higher education. It's exciting to see them!

Mrs Aks found some real good bargains while shopping yesterday and received 45% discounts, so today we're heading back out for a few more items that she thinks she needs for attending the upcoming wedding this summer. I hate to do it, but someone has too; I'll take her back to the mall once again.

You're a sweetheart Aks! My hubby is always reluctant to go mall shopping with me, he says I take forever even when buying just one item.

Thanks ... I'll still feel rushed but at least the commute will be simpler with no train transfers (which can add 1-1.5 hours to my trip). It's the time savings that I'm celebrating

I agree with the bolded but unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in gaining adjunct work in my local area. At least the jobs I have pay well so that takes away some of the pain of commuting but I can't wait for the day when I can relocate closer to work and bypass the commuter rail altogether as the company is getting on my every last nerve. LOL! I better stop complaining in the "A good thing happened today" thread or else I'd get smacked on the hand by a cyber ruler

Yeah ... When I get off work at 5pm on Thursdays, I would literally get home at 8pm due to the fact that I had to take 2-3 trains ... It's the waiting that adds the time to the commute. What's changed is that I no longer need to leave that late so I can catch an earlier DIRECT train home.

Friends from out of town stopped in and we went out to lunch together. A nice day for conversations and getting updates on what's happening.
