Probably Not!

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!

It's a shame the bus didn't work out for you, but at least you got a chance to try it. I'm like you...I like going when I want to go. I hate waiting.
Have a great week!

We used to go camping a lot, and enjoyed every minute. I think that's a cool idea!! Love your new header; it IS new isn't it; I'm getting old you know.

Have a good week, my friend! :)

And, Jeanette, thanks so much for your support; it means a lot to me.

I'd enjoy reading about your camping trips. :-)

My husband takes his "magic wand" (what I call it) out to hunt for treasures when he has time. Those are neat, huh?

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Well, now that you've tried the bus, at least you know that isn't what you want. Good luck with the checkup.
