Home in the Piedmont

The driving day went fairly well. An accident on the highway just south of DC stretched my normal 11.5 hour commute to 13 hours and left me with a very trapped feeling surrounded on all sides by cars that wouldn’t move. It was a real blessing to have an engrossing book on the CD player.

But apparently being stuck in traffic saved me from driving through a storm. When I got to the piedmont house, the air was fresh and cool — filled with the scent of a rain I didn’t have to drive. The dog was glad to see me. I was tired and hungry but I was able to pull together a quick dinner from leftovers I had brought back with me. I unloaded the car, unpacked the cooler, settled the herbs on their piedmont windowsill and dropped an email to DP to let her know I’d arrived safely. Then I called it a night. Although I generally sleep very soundly on the firmer mattress in the CRV house, I will say that the pillowtop mattress leftover from a more indulgent past felt pretty good last night.

This morning I’ll spend in the office. I have to arrive smart early to set up some demonstration software for the recruiting system on the boss’s boss’s computer. Then I have to leave around noon to stop by the grocery and get over to pick up the kid at school. I’m looking forward to seeing him.
