One of the best things about leaving the house at 6:20 in the a.m. is the scenery. We teacher-types must be at our posts by 7:15. I don't have that long a commute, but do have to make the obligatory Starbux Stop...you know what I mean?
School lets out at 2:10 p.m. My contract bids me stay until 2:45. What with newspaper, plus yearbook & then AP Lang janx, though, I hardly ever get out before 4:30, sometimes 5. Or even later. Three times last week, I arrived back home almost exactly 12 hours after I had left the house that morning.
I know, I'm a public servant. I get the summers off (yeah, right. It takes 2 months to recover from the previous 10). I should be happy I'm employed.
That's why I posted my commute route this morning. I'm thankful for small things. Aren't you?
