Caltrain and I have a love hate relationship. I love that it has made it very easy for me to get to and from work. I love that I have met some great friends on Caltrain (Hey Henri! Hey Jill! Hey Mary!). I love that it gave me time to wind down before getting home. I hate that at times it was late. I hate that I had to go by the schedule. Caltrain has been great for the past 5 years. It was great not driving to work. This relationship has run its course. Yesterday was my last day riding Caltrain. In true form, I missed my train by less than a minute and had to wait about 30 minutes to catch the next one. Since Callan is at daycare, it will be easier for me to drive. I will be able to leave early enough to get a good parking space and leave early enough to beat the traffic. It will also give me peace of mind in case I need to get to daycare during the day. Cost will be about the same since the train tickets seems to increase every other month.
Caltrain, I will miss you!
