No, not a commentary on our marriage. Just using a cliche to capture your attention. I am referring to the fact that people have returned to work and made my trip to and from work less pleasant.
I don't normally take the freeway to work as it is really crowded. The period after Christmas until the end of last week it was the ideal way to travel though. Mileage in my car improved noticeably as traffic flow was very good and much faster than normal. No more stop/start driving through the 'burbs.
This week I have maintained my freeway drive, just to see when I should give it up, and it appears that time is nigh. On Tuesday at a merging point with lanes joining the freeway I was nearly sideswiped by a young woman who came from behind and was quite oblivious to the fact. Noticing that she had a P-plate (Probabationary driver - inexperienced, not on parole) it made a lot of sense that she had driven in that manner. While I was yelling a few obscenities and commenting to myself on the situation I came to the realisation that I was going to collide with a 4WD owner and his rather large trailer who was crossing a solid white line (no overtaking or changing lanes allowed) and who wasn't far away from my wing mirror. That really upset me. The bastard then had the audacity to stick his arm out the window and make a motion with his hand like an ostrich talking. WTF?! I wasn't in the wrong here.
It's times like these that strengthen my belief in road rage. Everyone should have a length of iron bar behind the seat to bash idiots like that. Yes, the holiday period is over and the roads are once again filled with selfish idiots who can't drive.
I was talking to somebody on the phone yesterday at work and was put on hold whilst they looked for an item for me. The on-hold setup they have is to play one of the local radio stations. Amusingly the next song to come on was one by Blondie - "Don't leave me hangin' on the telephone". Little things like that brighten my day.
Yoga Is Definitely Relaxing
Miky went to a yoga lesson last night. She needs to chill a bit and also keep herself occupied. Not that you aren't occupied when you look after Yu-Jin all day. Yoga proved to be very relaxing for one of the men in the class as in one particular excercise they had to lie down and Miky could hear snoring coming from behind her. Yes, he had fallen asleep during the class. Miky said that it was dangerous to drive home afterwards as she felt quite sleepy.
