Hopefully I won't throw up.

I keep saying that I take inspiration from other bloggers. Sometimes I need a nudge to help me try something new (like the natural sea sponge tampons that I love). Recently I read a post on Squirrel Chatter about public transportation. I decided to research options for taking the bus to work. Getting there appears to be no problem- lots of times and options for park-n-rides. But the rub seems to be the return trip to the 'burbs. The last bus leaving from near where I work heading to my home is at 5:09. And I'd have to catch a shuttle just to get near there. How is that supposed to work? Who plans these things?

I think that once my office shifts to "summer hours" I might be able to swing it. It will mean an hour spent on the bus each way. It's possible I may try it and hate it, but it seems like something worth attempting. I'd better pack a "barf bag" though, given that car sickness tends to run in the family. So stay tuned...

I used to have the same problem when I took the bus to work. What a pain in the neck! I hope it works out for you.

SodaBoy used to take the bus to work, but I'd have to pick him up when his shift ended. Same problem with no return trip late enough.

Sea Sponge Tampons? I have never even imagined such a thing existed. I was floored the other day when I saw the menstrual cup at Fruitful Yield. I am still an old-fashioned Tampax girl. I am so behind the times. What would I do without my girl blogger friends to enlighten me?

Yea for planning an attempt! I wonder if you could get to work a little earlier so you could leave for your shuttle on time ... ?

It seems to be a good way to keep you from spending overtime at the school and more time at home. Plus you save on your gas bill.

I used to ride the bus to work all the time every day, but I lived near a bus stop, and I worked near a bus stop. I had a portable computer and wrote novels and poetry while riding. Then my job changed and I needed a car. There went the bus riding and novel writing. AK!

I am so flattered that I have inspired you! :) You will have to keep us all updated on how it goes - I am sure it will rough at first - but hang in there!
