Munchkin is heading in to Senior Kindergarten this year. She’s very excited but I think it’s because we’ve been pumping her up over the last few weeks. This is her first “back to school” so she’s not accustomed to the rituals that are involved: getting new shoes, new clothes and new school supplies.
That’s all fine and dandy. But the back to school thing that I hate the most… more commuters on the road.
Next week will be the last 5 business day of good driving before all the vacationers come back.
Summer drives to work and back are pretty good as there are fewer people on the road. September 8th will be a drastic change from doing the speed limit (if not more) to a crawl. Oh, and just when everyone is back into the swing of things, the snow will come. That screws up everything and the drive gets even longer.
So if you see a minivan pulled over on the side of the 401 with a crying woman in the driver’s seat, it will be me. Not becuase my first born child is back in school and almost 5 year old, but becuase 2+ hours of my life is spent in said van surrounded by people who can’t do the speed limit.
