Took me 20 minutes to drive 4 blocks on the way home from work today. I could so do without Chicago traffic for the rest of my life. Over three hours of driving time total to and from work. That really tacks a lot onto your day.
I work the early shift this Wednesday and Thursday, which I am thrilled about 'cause I will beat all the traffic. Down side is that my alarm will be going off at 4:30am, but I much prefer that than getting home so late at night like I have been.
