On Monday, I had to drive to work for the first time in, well, I don’t quite remember. It must have been over a month since the last time I drove a car to work.

It was a crazy day, with Thing One headed one way, and Thing Two headed another. H was shuttling Thing Two around and I needed to have the car at work so I could pick up Thing One from cross country practice.

Which leads to this article from CNN.com, "Average driver wastes 38 hours per year in traffic". It’s all my fault. Without my occasional rare commute, that would be more a more palatable 37.8 hours per year.
