How long does it take you to get to work?

How long does it take me to get to work ? Well, it depends. Because I am allowed to work from home. And most days, this for me is just as good as working from my office, as I have the secure internet access to the people and systems that I require to do my job. And after factoring in what is working at home 2 our of 5 days a week, I calculate my overall commute time to be 40 minutes, one way, to the office. Though this does tend grow out to about an hour when you factor in the trip to the gas station and coffee shop each morning that I drive. And that puts me at about twice the national average. So perhaps I need to change up my schedule and work from home a little more often, like 3 days a week? For it sure beats my only other alternative: which is carpooling into the office at 5:30 in the morning! .
