Epic daily commute

So… daylight savings… I know this is a bit after the fact, but I’ve discovered a way not to completely hate it.

Although I totally miss getting home after work while there is still a bit of daylight left (and would far rather be engulfed in darkness when I head to work in the morning), I’ve discovered a delightful benefit to driving home in the dark…

… cue the movie soundtrack for Lord of the Rings…

There’s something about driving in the dark with an epic soundtrack playing loudly. It transforms the boring old drive down the road with lots of annoying other drivers taking up precious road space into a journey fraught with danger, adventure, and strange creatures lurking in the shadows. No really, it actually does. You should try it. It’s epic and spooky and yes I may be a little weird and nerdy. It’s working for me though.

Of course, the music totally freaks the kids out so when I pick them up from after school care I have to go back to the regular soundtrack of silly songs.

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.
