Finally Monday



Monday was the first day I-96 was open. I went into work on Plymouth Road (as I normally do in the morning) and was pleasantly surprised. There were clumps of 5-10 cars here and there, but no long lines at each stoplight and no streams of big rigs! Wonderful!!!

A no-stress drive into work is the best way to start the day.

It was a partly cloudy, cool day in Southeast Michigan, BTW. Fall officially began around 10:00 p.m., putting an end to a really crappy summer.

I took the new expressway home at 5:00 p.m. Not only is it a pristine surface, but all the on and off ramps have been redesigned. They are much longer with a gentler slope. Nice.

Sidebar: I think that's the first time I’ve had the truck over 40 mph in six months!

Back home, I treated the cat, changed clothes and then assembled the garbage for Tuesday morning. I watched the nightly news and then made a couple of calls.

I warmed up the eggplant Parmesan and more of that spaghetti for dinner.

I watched a couple of taped shows and then went to bed at 10:00 p.m.
