How long is your commute to work?

 Is it a stressful time? Or do you use it for quiet time?

My current commute is about 45 minutes and the traffic is so bad that it's a stressful time.  Hoping to change jobs soon with a much smaller commute that has less traffic. Can't wait!

It's time to deal with the skeletons that have been hiding in my closet these last 25 years. God, give me strength!

Same here...unless the cat is on the stairs. With that traffic, it's a whole minute!

It takes me anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes. It's usually pretty frustrating since people just don't pay attention and I swear I'm constantly getting cut off.

It's about 20 minutes give or take traffic and weather. Usually it's a time for me to relax and decompress

30 minutes. My dh and I go to work together (usually). He drops me off and picks me up. We use it to just chat.

 It's about 10 minutes.  It's only stressful because I have to drop my daughter at the bus stop on the way to work, and she has to be there at a specific time or the bus will already have left.  If it wasn't for this issue with making her bus on time, my commute in to work would be quite peaceful.

This exactly, only I have a son instead of a daughter. The 10 minutes for me includes the stop at the school bus.

About an hour, hoping traffic is predictable.

About 15 minutes. I only live 3 miles from work but I always chat when I drop the kids off.
