The Big Blue Bus and more from my 101 list...

Today I am very thankful for the Big Blue Bus and it's driver - my dear husband Dan! Without him, my commute to work gets even uglier! My normal commute to work (about 25 miles away) starts at 6:25 a.m. when we pull out of the garage in the Big Blue Bus! He drops me at the Outlet Mall (about 2.5 miles from home) at 6:35 a.m. where I catch the FREX (Front Range Express) bus to Denver. About 7:00 a.m. I get off the FREX and wait another 7-8 minutes for the Denver RTD bus that takes me the remaining 1.75 miles to my office. I get there about 7:25 a.m. Then I do the reverse on the way back home, but that takes me even longer, leaving at 4:30 p.m. and arriving home at about 6 p.m.! When Dan is away and I don't have a Big Blue Bus to rely on, I have to wait for the little Castle Rock shuttle... unfortunately that doesn't pick up at my house until 7:25 a.m. and I don't get to work until almost 9 a.m.! Oh the joys of not having a license! Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining... I'm thankful I have him to assist me!!! Just consider yourself lucky if you can drive!

Here are another 10 items from my 101 list...
  1. Repaint the inside of my house something other than white
  2. Celebrate another 20 years of marriage with Dan
  3. Replace the loft furniture with a sectional
  4. Get a dresser for my bedroom (haven’t had one in 20 years)
  5. Replace the carpet throughout the house
  6. Have my windows cleaned
  7. Have my daughter cook 2x per week
  8. Use cloth bags for grocery’s and go green! DONE (and we love it!)
  9. Re-landscape my front and back yards
  10. Meet Marlene out of state for a girl’s weekend

Booger: Glad to hear you are going "green"! It's really not that hard.

I would love to meet you for some fun out of state, but which state would we pick?!
