So, is my blog the proper place to admit my bizarre behaviorisms? If not here, where??!! The answer may be nowhere! Keep that shit to yourself, Camla... But, alas, I cannot. I must embrace my weirdness and revel in it.
Today is my day off from the frozen hell that is my route. I stayed up last night until 10:30 (whoo hoo!!). I slept until 7:00!!! Many people will not appreciate how fabulous that is, but my co-workers will... I turned on my phone at 8am to listen to a voice mail from my supervisor asking me if I could please work today. No, I cannot. I have an omellet to make and I must sit on my ass for a few hours, enjoying my rare leisure time. So sorry.
I cleaned the ferret room and started some laundry after surfing the web. Then, I wrote my grocery list and packed up to leave the house. And by "packed up", I mean I put my shovel in my car and drove to my route. Here is where, as my friend Kim put it, the "insanity" began. I went to several houses on my route and shoveled their sidewalks. Kim asked me how many I shoveled, so give me a sec while I count them up... Um, apparently 5 is the total. These people had not TOUCHED their sidewalks. We are talking about a foot and a half to two feet of snow. I was forced to walk is the street when I arrived at these houses, which is both dangerous and time consuming. So, I went out and shoveled them. Why is this crazy? I did not shovel so they could comfortably stroll down their walk. I am on their street 5 and 6 days a week. And winter will last another 2 months at least. So, that is what I did.
Then, I filled up my car for $1.66 a gallon by driving across town to my favorite station and also washed my car. I then went to Pier 1, where they were having a 75% off sale. I think they will be closed within a month or two. It looks like it. Then on to Super Target, where I bought a new mop and some salt for the sidewalk. Woo!!! Next, off to Quizno's for a yummy Classic Italian sandwich. Quizno's has been advertising their new price cuts. Well, I am here to tell you the reason. The sandwiches are now smaller!!! Well, at least they didnt raise the prices... I also went to the Starbuck's drive thru for a mocha frapachino and then hunted my buddy Kim down. We bitched about work and talked about my crazy shoveling and then I let her get back to work!!
I went home to mop the kitchen floor, change the sheets, and run more laundry. That was my day. Much better than the route, I think. I really needed to get all that stuff done and I just needed some time to myself; on no one's schedule but my own.
We made tacos for dinner and watched The L-Word!! Yea!!! And now I am refreshed and ready to go back to work tomorrow. :)
