I do believe that it will happen this summer. However, I also heard
on on of the financial cable shows that it will likely be short
lived, sort of a wake up call, they said.
I too have a 32 mile 45-50 minute commute every day with no bus
option. The hardest thing for me is waiting at all of the stoplights.
I think there are about 35 of them. There is about a 10 mile stretch
without any. When the traffic flows I find that I can keep up with
the green lights by keeping VERY close to the posted speed.
We now have implimented a couple of things that make our single
errand day work. In addition to making sure that prescriptons are
ready, we order books at the library where they are waiting on a
shellf for us. We reserve the videos at the rental store…once again
a fast pick up. I have been seriously considering the grocery
delivery service that is offered by most of the store near by as well.
I am now down to grocery shopping only once a week and I am working
to every other week. Maybe I can get all errands on every other week.
Shopping with the need and desperatly need lists helps a lot.
Another time and gas saver has also been a lifesaver. I have been at
a store wanting to buy three of something because it was buy two get
one free but there were not three in my size. I found that Reebok
will find it in another store and ship it to you…FREE. I has that
done in another store for some Bras. It never hurts to ask for that
option. I usually pay at the store and get the free shipping option.
It is great if you can wait a little for something.
Have a great one.
