I spend about 25 minutes in the car to and from work without my kids. Some days I can take the train and get some work and meal planning in, but when I drive, the most I manage is to listen to NPR or some classical music.

I'd love to be able to do some vocal journaling for my kids. I'm terrible at actually writing anything down and I remember being fascinated when I found my mom's high school notebook and wishing she had some when she met my dad and when I was born. Maybe I just need a voice recording app because I'm not finding what I want in Google Play.

Any tips? What do you do to make your commutes useful?
