A Fine Monday Morning

It's been kind of interesting being car-less the last month or so. It is a bummer sometimes, like when we'd like to go to the store or go out and see friends, but all in all could have been much worse. I had already become familiar with the nearby bus routes and whether we had a working vehicle or not, I would be riding the bus to work on weekday mornings.

Last Friday, my sons were off from school for a school holiday, so we all took the city bus to go up to my job to pick up my paycheck. My sons hadn't really been on a city bus before, so it was a new experience for them. Sure, waiting at the bus stop wasn't too fun for my oldest boy, but he managed to keep himself amused for the most part. We all had a good time and it was a beautiful day outside. My wife and I took a similar trip the week before. Our friends have also been very helpful with rides on several occasions, and we are very grateful.

So, now we have our W-2's and should be able to e-file our taxes this week and hopefully, by the end of next week, we can get our poor vehicle back up and running.

I will, of course, keep you informed via blogging!

Best Wishes,
Allen

Isn't this fun to take the bus or the underground? i had sold my car too, like 4 month ago and since than i really enjoyed to take the transportation. I haven't done this since seven! years and i found it fun, to watch the people, to walk a lot and to see that i have great friend. wherever they go, first they will call to ask me if i need a ride. I realized how lucky i m am having those friends...i love them so much.
