Today was the first day in at least a month that it did not take me 45 minutes to get to the studio. We live 2 1/2 miles away - the reason we chose this neighborhood to locate our business was its proximity to our house. If the studio could not be in our living space, we needed it close by. But, it has proven to not have mattered - the construction in our studio's neighborhood is insanely infuriating. There have only been a handful of days since we moved in that have been construction traffic free. As hard as I try to keep my cool and not start my day off in a frustrated tornado, I am not always very successful. Most days I arrive feeling like I have lost almost an hour of my life that I cannot get back….that does not make for a good start to any day. I know I know, if I were more centered and more accepting of the ebbs and flows of life (and construction) I would embrace those minutes in the car as a time of solace and rejuvenation. But, when you're surrounded by honking cars and idiot drivers and people screaming from windows and sirens and bulldozers…it's hard to find that mental space. I do my best to try.
But, today! Today there was NO traffic! I am sure this indicates the start to a great weekend. We've rented a dumpster and we're getting back to working on the house - yay! Saturday and Sunday will be long satisfactory days hauling junk and plaster from the house to the large red dumpster. There is still so much to pull out of there and I'm looking forward to the purging of all the debris.
Ahhhh…there's nothing quite like looking forward to meeting the dumpster delivery person, eh?! Wishing you the same sort of weekend :)
