One of Those DaysToday was one of those days when absolutely nothing worked out. From an early start in the morning, to technology issues during the day, it was easy to label Thursday as "one of those days". Faster forward through all of the blah 8-5 weekday issues and I'll discuss the worst part.
I mentioned that we are members of a CSA. We pick up our veggies and fruit on Thursday afternoons in downtown Glen Ellyn. It requires a different route home than my traditional commute, but it's still on my trek home. As I left my office, I hopped in my car with my thoughts locked upon home.
Yes, I took the wrong way.
Not a big deal. I can jump on the eastbound Reagan Expressway for a few minutes and catch the ramp to northbound I-355. There's a small amount of backtracking, but nothing too far out of the way. Of course, as I reached the exit, I was too far to the left and couldn't merge right.
In essence, I drove 95% of the way home and headed westbound on Roosevelt Road. Being after 5 p.m., traffic is heavier than normal. To be expected, naturally. Of course, today there was road construction. There was a stalled car in the median. I also think I caught every single red light on the way.
Yeah, you get. One of those days. Why is the long weekend still a full day away?
