Well, one more week of free bus transportation and I will be back to driving myself to and from work once again. I pretty much have decided that I will NOT be signing up for permanent bus transportation. On Friday the bus was a few minutes late and it got me thinking. What if it gets in a traffic jam on the way in and doesn't come until 6:00? I would be going crazy! And in the winter, if the driving is dicey, how late might that bus be? If I have my car I could leave work a little early and yes, I would be cleaning my car off and driving myself, but at least I will be making my way HOME and not sitting waiting for a bus for a extra half-hour. So my decision is made. But I will be taking the bus this week because it gives my car a nice little break, not to mention gas money I saved.
My only other option would be talking my supervisor into letting me work from 7:00-3:30 (a bus picks up at 3:47) but that is not too likely to happen!
My friend and went shopping on Saturday. I spent $127 on two pairs of shoes. Never in my life have I spent that much on shoes, but they are for work and do a lot of walking so I needed good shoes. I expect them to last me for a few years!
In the afternoon on Saturday Rich and I went to Proud Lake State Park to do some of this:
It was nice out, breezy and sunny off and on. We enjoyed it even if we did only find 2 pennies!
We drove to a couple different picnic areas
and through the campground. It looked nice. We used to camp all of the time when I was a kid and when my kids were little. We stopped going when the they got too old to want to go. But I miss it sometimes. I keep thinking we should buy ourselves a little pop up camper and go again!
Today is laundry and cleaning, the usual stuff.
Tomorrow morning I have an appointment at the urologist for my 3-4 month check up. Ugh..I hate those appointments!
