This past week, into this mix I jammed in the following errands:
- Monday - ballet practice, church meeting
- Tuesday - eye appointment, community association meeting
- Wednesday - post office, dollar store, school meeting
- Thursday - home all afternoon for an electrician
That's eight separate things, when in a typical week it might be only one or two. It made for a pretty hectic past several days.
One thing that wasn't part of those past several days was using a car. Because of where I live and work, and because of how Philadelphia is organized, none of those errands required a car. In fact, a car would have been less convenient and more time-consuming than walking or transiting. Score one for a location that so easily allows a car-free existence.
