First, I drop my daughter at school and my son at pre-school, then I go thru the Starbucks drive thru, jump on the freeway and drive 17 miles downtown. Then I park my car on the top level of a very tall parking structurem make my way down to the 1st floor and walk three blocks in an enclosed walkway that lets out half a block from my office building.

It takes me way too long and, btwn gas and parking, it is way too expensive.

I arrive at work feeling spent.
