Remember how I was saying yesterday that I make it home by 6:30 on a good night? Well yesterday did not turn out to be a good night. Seattle traffic is pretty bad anyway, but when you take out one of only two bridges running East/West across the lake, it snarls everything up. The 520 was out for 'emergency repairs', probably from the high winds we've been having. Anyway, my little North/South trek from Northgate to Beacon Hill, which takes 12 minutes in zero traffic (rare, but I have achieved it), took about an hour and a quarter.
So dinner last night consisted of a sandwich eaten over the kitchen sink, followed inexplicably by a quick game of Twister, and then we were into the bedtime routine. The fritatta I had planned will have to be fritattaed another day.
But tonight I've checked the traffic map and it looks good, so barring any unforseen events I should be able to achieve dinner once again. It seems like such a small victory really, but I'll take it.
