A new commute

One of the things that happened while I was gone is that I started a new job. This is a great thing for more than one reason. But we'll just focus on the commuting part today.

The school where I was teaching decided to change the start time from 8:30 am to 7:30 am. While most people were excited about the prospect of starting an hour earlier so that we could be finished 25 minutes earlier, I was not. The 7:30 start time would prevent me from riding my bike to school.

My wife is awesome. She puts up with a lot of stuff. Somehow, I don't think she would be too happy with me leaving her with the responsibility of getting three kids ready for school so that I could ride a bike to work. I was beginning to dread the thought of having to shelve the bike.

Luckily, I did not have to do that.

Here's an outline of my new commute...
