As I was heading into work today I noticed that I see the same truck everyday at the same time. I get my coffee at Tim Hortons on Jamison Rd every morning and take the same route to work every single time I come to the station. I bet my truck could do it on it's own!I got to thinking that perhaps just changing up your commute a bit each day could make your day or week a little less mundane. This could apply for the ride home as well. Most people take the same route every day because it is the fastest route. Actually, with the delays in place each morning, switching up your route a bit may be even faster. How many times have you driven to work and not even remember the ride in?  If you take the 400, perhaps try Seneca Street some morning. If you hit the Tim Hortons on Niagara Falls Blvd near Creekside, perhaps try the one just on the south side of the 290. If you take route 5 in from Hamburg/Orchard Park, you may find coming in Abbott Rd to South Park a bit friendlier.

Here is a link to a map of the Buffalo area that you find helpful. The way I see it, a little variety and change can go a long way in improving a persons mood.
