I must admit, I thoroughly enjoy my 20-minute morning commute.
I've gotten to "know" other people and their vehicles that travel my way every morning.
I greet my fellow commuters, albeit silently in my head, with a jovial, "good morning, fellow productive members of society", and bid those that exit the highway prior to me a happy day.
Alone time in a car (or anywhere) is a precious commodity to a mother, and I cherish every serene moment.
I won't miss my job when it ends in six weeks, but I think I might miss my commute a little. Definitely won't shed any tears for it, but will remember it fondly.
I wonder if the other commuters along my path will notice I'm missing?
How about your commute, if you have one? Like/dislike/indifferent?
**After re-reading this post, I thought I'd clarify that I don't think people heading off to work in the morning are the only productive members of society. Not at all. That's just how I view my road companions, is all.
