    I’m in the same boat as you… I drive 45-50 min north and Darling Husband drives 1 hr south. However traffic for him is terrible! It takes him sometimes 2 hours to get to and from work. No babies yet but we already agreed something has to change before we start trying.

    @MadTownGirl:  We both have long commutes as well…i head east for about 40 mins and Darling Husband heads south also for 40 mins.  I work 8 hrs daily, but Darling Husband sometimes has to work more than 8 hrs., right now we dont have kids, but are TTC.  Fortunately for us our jobs would let us work from home, if need be., so my plan once we have kids is to work one a day at home and then he can work from home another day of the week and then maybe parents or daycare for the kids.  Would your job let you work from home if you need to?  what about DH? GL, I know i can be complicated and a bit stressing.

    My commute is terrible.  About 30 miles but usually takes an hour and 15 mins each way.  I despise it!  It is such a life sucking thing to have to commute.  Darling Husband has a 15 min commute and works in the same town that we live in.  Sooooo when babes come along he’ll have to be the one “on call”.  I’m sure we’ll work out some sort of schedule but since he’s so much closer he’ll have to pick up a lot of running around… UNLESS of course we win the lottery and I can be a stay at home mommy!!!  LOL

    A good day = 45 minutes

    A bad day = 2 hours

    ETA…if it rains a lot of snows I just work from home rather than be stuck on the road for hours.

    @MadTownGirl:  My commute is 10 minutes, but I do not know if I should pick the first or the second as 10 is for both!

    I’m glad I saw this toll.  I see its pretty normal to have a long commute to work.  It takes me 40 minutes and I swear I would enjoy my job a lot more if it didn’t take so long to get here.  lol.  My mom is about 30 min in the opposite direction of my job.  ANd she is going to be our babysitter after I have a baby.  Maybe by time that happens I might get lucky and be a stay at home mom.  lol

    8 minutes driving or 45 minutes on public transit.  I go 3miles, but it’s 5:30 am.  If I leave later, it turns into half an hour.

    Well from front door to office door is about 50 minutes or so.  I live 12 miles from the employee lot.  I get there usually in about 30-25 minutes.  Then its another 20-25 minutes to be shuttled over, swipe into my terminal, and walk about 2 blocks length to my office,

    I drive 45 mins north, Fiance drives 45 mins south, fortunately, we live in a town we leant to live in and have a lot of friends there also, dont have children, or thought about anything like that. I guess you either have to move, or sort out some childcare that let’s you drop of a child early and pick up late?

    @MadTownGirl:  I have a  40-50 min commute. A great time to turn the radio on and chill. This is my down time before I arrive home and go into mummy mode.
