The Drive

I'm officially six days into my long commute from The Woodlands. It hasn't gotten any easier, but I'm at least starting to get a little more used to it. Probably the most frustrating thing about it is there's no rhyme or reason to anything that happens. I got home yesterday in 52 minutes. On Monday it took me an hour and ten minutes. Nothing at all was different. I left at the same time, I took the same route, and there were no accidents. My normal morning commute is 45 minutes. This morning it took me an hour and almost fifteen minutes. A truck decided to catch on fire on I45 which forced two lanes to be closed.

Overall, I'm dealing with it. I have zero patience to begin with, so I wasn't too sure how I would handle being stuck in the car for two hours each day. So far so good. I enjoy my time when I get home. Being out of all the noise and car fumes from the city is definitely nice and it gives Beth and I a chance to breath easy(literally) when running after work. I only have 15 more days of the commute until we go to Italy and I know that's going to be a nice break!
