~~ Told Hannah she'd be wearing underwear at school today and that if she had to go potty, she should tell her teacher. I sent 4 extra pairs of pants (...and underwear... and socks.... and shoes....). LOL!
~~ Sent both girls off to daycare and sat down with hot coffee, my laptop, and silence. Pure heaven, I tell ya.
~~ Zapped off an email to my old company asking if they wanted their laptop back. I didn't want to ask if they wanted it back, but I HAD to email him to find out if there are any upcoming projects since my unemployment benefits run out in 4 short weeks.
~~ Got an email back saying they were having a box sent to me so I could ship the computer back. [sigh]
~~ Zapped off an email to my old manager asking if her offer to sub-contract through her and her husband's consulting company was still a valid offer. Ugh.
~~ Wondered if I could pull in $500 working two days a week as a waitress. I'm thinking that unless I'm naked, the answer is probably no. Come to think of it, even being naked means the answer is probably no in my case.
~~ Stood in the shower a good 45 minutes. Because I could do that without worrying about 1 or 2 children destroying the bedrooms while I was in there.
~~ Ran to the post office to buy stupid $0.02 stamps and stupid $0.39 stamps because of the stupid rate increase for stupid postage. Stupid crooks. [grumble grumble]
~~ Ran to the insurance office to have them send Certificates of Insurance for Steve's business to random townships requiring this information. Fun, fun, lemme tell ya.
~~ Ran into the grocery store to grab the things we stupidly forgot when we were just all there 3 days ago.
~~ Spent a ridiculously large amount of money and ridiculously few items. When did it become so expensive to like, you know, eat?
~~ Went to Arby's to get curly fries with cheese and a ham & swiss melt. How did I not know they had ham & swiss melts there? I thought they only had those horrid beef and cheddar ones until I saw the commercial for the ham ones on TV the other day. Who knew?
~~ Ran home and ate until I wanted to throw up.
~~ Started a load of laundry.
~~ Gave Salinger his laxative. (See? I CAN remember every day if I try really, really hard.)
~~ Went back upstairs two hours later to put laundry in the dryer and realized I had never added soap to the washer.
~~ Restarted the load of laundry, this time with the appropriate cleansing products.
~~ Pondered the procedures grocery stores use to have their products delivered. I mean, does each seperate brand of food deliver their own products to the store? Because that would be a lot of trucks and a lot of deliveries. Seriously... does anyone know the answer to this, because it's really bothering me.
~~ Updated all of Steve's business files on the computer for the 4th quarter of 2005 and emailed them off to the accountant so she can figure out our quarterly taxes. [sigh]
~~ Obsessively checked Steve's bed all day long, praying Salinger hadn't pissed, shit, or puked on it.
~~ Made fun of people. (Because I'm ignorant like that.)
~~ Deposited the $200.00 check to Steve from Exxon into my account. (Because I'm greedy like that.)
~~ Laughed when in the middle of the conversation, Steve looked at me and said, "What the hell do you do anyway?" Ahhhh... why did a consultant that writes computer software user guides and training manuals marry a computer illiterate concrete worker? One may never know. LMAO!
~~ Dropped off the appropriate tax forms at the accountant's house/office.
~~ Went to pick up the girls at Grandma's and headed for home in the pouring freaking rain and fog.
~~ Was thrilled, impressed, and shocked as shit when I walked in and saw Hannah wearing the exact same outfit she had left in this morning. That's right... my girl didn't have ANY potty accidents today! Holy CRAP!
~~ Was surprised when the girls' bath went rather well. It's amazing how some bathtub crayons can keep two kids from trying to drown each other.
~~ Played Scooby Doo video games with Grace while having to sit on my hands so I wouldn't grab the controller from her hands and start playing it myself. I soooo wanted to get to the next level to see what happens.
~~ Realized I'll probably play it tomorrow when no one else is home.
~~ Made mental note to order more cartridges, but for higher age groups and which will be hidden from all other family members and only brought out when I'm alone.
~~ Watched "Lost", only missing about 10 minutes of it due to a 2-year-old who decided she wanted her Mommy for a little longer than usual before bedtime. Mmmmm.... Sawyer....
~~ Decided that my nightly "snack" of Pringles and cream cheese really must come to an end if I have any intentions of keeping any more dimples from forming on my ass.
~~ Wondered where the hell my Hollister Co. perfume and shirt are. They were supposedly shipped days ago. C'mon people! I need to see what this gift card got me. I mean, I did order this "unisex fragrance" without ever laying nose on it. ;)
~~ Had a brief moment where I longed for my college days and my self-declared "Show Tunes Day", when I would sing EVERYTHING to my roommate like a showtune. Made us laugh until we pissed ourselves every damn time.
~~ Thinking of my roommate made me think of our shared favorite children's book... "Harriett the Spy." I cannot wait until my girls are old enough to read it and enjoy it. If they don't like it, they are officially disowned. :)
