I had a doctor’s appointment this evening (another ear infection, yuck), which mean that I had to head across town in rainy, rush hour traffic. Not my favorite thing to do, even when my ear isn’t throbbing! The doctor’s office is near to where we used to live, about 45 (optimistic) minutes from where I work. I used to have to make that drive twice a day- now I work about 10 minutes from my house and my husband is the one with the 45 minute commute.
My parents both live far from where they work, and they don’t have much choice in the matter; they have to drive long distances every day. As I was thinking about the idea for this topic I happened to come across Frugal Babe’s post where she talks about working from home.
I would love to be able to work from home and if I can’t make that happen, I’d really like to be able to commute to work by bike or on foot. The bike option is certainly feasible as I now only live 3 miles from my job.
How about you- what’s your commute like?
