I didn't wake up this morning.
Accordingly, I missed riding with Marilyn mistressmarilyn to work. (She had to take off, because she had a 9:30 meeting she had to get to and she was running late -- especially for her! As you can tell by my entries, she's usually at work by 8:30 at the latest. And often she's there much, much earlier!)
I dashed around and was ready to go by 9:11 -- but what good did that do me?
It's now 10:00 a.m.
I need (want?) to get to work. (No. I have no set time to be there, so it's not like I'm 'late' or anything.)
Um. But I've never ridden public transportation to the PRFA office, believe it or not...
Yeah. I'm such a wuss about taking buses I'm not familiar with. (gulp)
Plus I've got my normal heavy bag -- and this banker's box full of Centennial items -- that I need to haul along. (I shouldn't mention it, but for whatever reason I woke up with a backache today... I'm sure there's a good reason here!)
I tried calling my best friend's house for a ride (I'm not above begging) -- but there's no answer there.
So it's time to balls up and go tackle the buses! (smile)
Hell, I can do this. I used to ride the bus to work all the damn time. It's just that the current location of the PRFA office isn't downtown (which is easy) -- instead it's over near John's Landing. (I just realized it's been more than 20 years since I rode a bus to that area! Except for going to the office, I have no reason to go there, obviously.)
I can do this.
And maybe next time I'll get my ass out of bed on time! (Even if we should happen to stay up past 4 a.m. the night before...)
I'm an Idiot. Mass Transit Time!
Marilyn was ill today (she stayed home), and I'm still fighting this bug I've had for several weeks. We both spent a good portion of the day…
What a long and exciting (and exhausting) day we had! Marilyn had been wanting to drive up the Gorge the entire weekend, but we hadn't managed it.…
"Nowhere Boy" is playing and Marilyn is sleeping. I have leg cramps right now, ironically enough. (It's been Marilyn who has been really suffering…
