I'm not sure you really appreciate the commute you have until you find yourself in another that is WAY worse!!! Some of you know that I drove over 2 hours each way to work for over 3 years (I know, you don't have to say anything!). Traffic wasn't much of an issue, just a LONG way to get there. I moved closer about 2 years ago so I was down to a 40 minute commute, which, in comparison, was a DREAM!!! But, I went and made it one step better...I moved to Poolesville and now find myself with a 12 minute commute and , well, there are no words.... Now I do have to add to that wonderfulness that the price is that I would starve to death if I had to survive on the one small grocery store in town. There is not much going on here. In fact, I think I saw Aunt Bea the other day!! But, back to the plus side...I have a fenced in yard...guess I should say THEY have a fenced in yard.
But today I was taken to a place I never want to call my commute...DC in rush hour traffic. Wow, what a mess. I know it's rough all the time, but it seemed as if everything that could be in the way of smoothly getting me home showed it's face today. On the upside, I was at a conference at the National Harbor. For those of you who have never been there, it is definitely worth visiting.
When I finally did find my way home, the boys and Emma were happy to see me (I'm the only one that can open the food bin). I took care of them and jumped on the treadmill for day 3 of my new running program. I was beat when I walked in the door, but that gave me the energy I needed to keep moving. I know it's early, but I am really enjoying this! My mom decided to join me in my running journey and when she first got on the treadmill tonight what I heard was, "there is no way I can do this." But when she finished up, I got a call that was more along the lines of, "I did it, I did it, I did it!!" Now that's what I LOVE to hear...go mom!!
I'm now off to prepare for my conference call tonight. I'm going to talk about keeping the main thing the main thing, then evolving. I hope everyone has a great night!!
