Today...well, yesterday by the time I get around to posting this.

This morning I sat in traffic for two hours to get to work.  Good thing I gave myself two and a half hours to get there.  Merritt Parkway traffic is obscene.

On my lunch break, I went to a little convenience store to buy Snapple, and they only accepted cash.  Who the hell carries cash?  Not me.

My job lasted 7 hours today.  Cha-ching.  I get paid by the page.  The longer the day, the more pages I get.

At the end of the job, the attorney informed me he would like me to come back and do Thursday and Friday all day, too.  Triple Cha-ching!

Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to get my kids to school on Thursday morning since Brand doesn't get home till 9:30 and I have to leave at 6:45 and the bus doesn't come until 8:10.  That little predicament has me scratching my head...

I pulled into a gas station to fill my tank before I drove home.  When I pulled in, every pump was being used and there were people waiting.  I walked into the little store and bought something (three guesses what it was) and when I walked out, all the pumps were empty.  I turned on the car, put on my seat belt, put the car in reverse to get gas and all the pumps were full again.  Please explain to me how that is even possible...

I had to stop at Staples to buy paper before coming home.  I needed to buy the 3-hole punch kind for work.  It's $7.99 a ream.  It was on sale by the case, 10 reams, $46 total, and they had one left.  That's nearly half the price.  SCORE!

When I got home, I immediately scooped up my little rugrats and we snuggled in my bed and watched The Princess and the Frog for the first time.  I loved it.  Not a big surprise there though.  I love ALL things Disney.

I put my kids to bed at 10:30 on a school night.  I missed their faces today.  They are going to be little beasts in the morning when it's time to get up.

To end my day, I royally pissed off my husband because the cats knocked over the garbage and I chose to walk past it and pretend I didn't see it.  He walked into the kitchen to find that little surprise and cursed me out the whole time while he was sweeping it up.

Such an exciting life I lead.


  1. I agree... I never have cash- and there is nothing more miserable than really wanting or needing something and not having the cash for it because a place won't take Credit.
    Gas here works like this - Credit is more expensive than Cash - and I know it's only 6 cents... but it irritates me and I try really hard to have cash for it - but 9 out of 10 times I've failed and need to get gas with a card... grrrrrrrrrrrr
    Debit cards should count as cash - at least I think so!

  2. I enjoy reading your posts, Jess... If only to make me smile during the day. ...and, the cat thing, I've done the same type of thing only not trash--cat puke! Love it! ~~Aunt B
