Executive Director - CoolMom
Happy May, CoolMoms! Since it’s "Think-Outside-the-Car month," I’ve been doing just that. Unfortunately, too much of my thinking takes place, literally, in my car. My confession is that I’m one of those people with a long commute for which no realistic public transportation option exists, unless you consider three hours and three busses at either end realistic. I’d like to have that kind of leisure time, but I don’t.
And that’s what gets me really thinking. Several years ago, before kids, my husband and I took a trip to France (we’ll leave thinking outside the plane for another month). We spent most of our time in two areas, but got by, with the exception of one day, without a car. This is thanks in part to France’s lovely train system and Paris’ slick metro (oh, for a Seattle metro!).
