Huzzah for Odd Work Weeks....or Something

Monday, July 31, 2017

I am not a Mon - Fri 9 to 5er. I work a very different schedule. Sat - Wed Sat 12-8:30, Sun 11-7:30 Mon - Wed 8:30-5. Mondays about kill me. I also don't drive. I ride the bus. So I'm getting home around 8:30 and then I have to be back at work at 8:30. It's draining. Makes working out very tricky on Sunday/Monday. My schedule changed just a smidge this week too so I didn't get anything at the gym in on Saturday.

I did walk a lot though. On Saturday I did 2 laps around the building. That was good. On Sunday I walked to the farther away bus stop, did a lap around the building before work. Did another lap at break and then about 3 at lunch. Around 9500 steps yesterday so even though it about darn near killed me, I still did it. I only got about 2 hours sleep last night, but I went and did about a mile around the building today at lunch. Forgot fitbit at home charging, but still 18 mins in so that makes me happy!

Have to share some humor. I ride the bus. It's partially by choice, partially by the fact my car is a POS and I want to drive AS LITTLE as possible. Sometimes buses up here in the Seattle Metro area run a little late. I swear people are.....well stupid. They will walk out into the road and stare at the road looking for the bus. I don't THINK that makes the bus come faster, but you never know.

    Actually, it's an old photo I found on the internet. I have some ones from the ferry I can send you in your SparkMail. I'm definitely not the greatest photog out there lol!

    I love our Orca cards. People that have always lived up here complain about transit, but they've never lived anywhere that you can't get a bus after 5 if there even are buses. I love it!

    I'm a bit jealous of your Orca Cards. Use one when I visit and it's lovely.

    Is that photo a recent one of the BC fires haze? Team WA is having a photo challenge and I'd love for you to share some shots of Seattle if you like. :)

    My company actually pays for mine Spirit42017. They are very big on environmental issues so every employee has access to unlimited transit. We use these things called Orca cards up here and everyone can have one if they want. We don't even have to use them just for work. We can use it to go wherever we please. I love it!

    I wish that I could afford to ride the paratransit. Maybe next month if I'm careful with my budget.
