The drive to Takoma Park from Olney takes about 30 minutes, but can be longer if traffic is bad. Sometimes it takes over an hour. If we are in a hurry and traffic is good, 23 minutes. The drive to work Monday morning is not the greatest since it is hard to sleep on Sunday. This shot shows New Hampshire Ave. Sometimes, to entertain myself, I pretend I am in a video game and am trying to weave through traffic. I am not sure if this is always safe.
On Tuesday, we have campus families. If we have time, Jenny and I will bake something to take to the kidlets. Jacqueline's cookies now have a school-wide reputation. I think there are students who only like me because of these cookies. Fair enough.
I always feel happy when I have completed Wednesday, since Thursday is one of my favorite days. It's a little easy to get lost in the hallway midweek, so my classroom has a convenient duck-tape number line sticking out of it. Plus, you can do graphs on the floor and stuff.
We don't go into DC that often, because it takes about an hour from Olney. Sometimes we make the trip on Saturday, and we will invariably stop at Peregrine Espresso. On one such occasion, Brian and Tiffany and I quizzed ourselves and the friendly barista with a Trivial Pursuit book.
