I work every Wednesday morning now, which is a really good thing, because it gets my foot in the door to get even MORE morning shifts and I pretty much make double the amount of tips in the morning than I do when I work dinner shifts.
However, though I hate to complain after I waited so long for this opportunity, it was really slow today, and I had a few annoying things happen, and then I get home and Jill (my friend who is Elise’s babysitter) rushes out to meet me at my car before I could come inside and says:
“I have to tell you something!”
“Are you going to tell me wonderful things that will fill me with joy?”
So, Elise lied.
Jill asked her if she had homework and Elise said that she did not have any homework, and then Jill looked inside her backpack anyway and saw that she in fact DID have homework. When confronted about it, Elise admitted to lying.. but what the hell?
It threw me for a loop. It was upsetting to come home when you’ve been looking forward all day to a nice, relaxing, fun evening with your kid and to be faced with having to discipline her (and make her do all her homework!).
I guess that’s life, and parenting.
It’s ZERO degrees outside tonight. The wind chill is around -15, and I am not going outside to see what that feels like.
I am reading a pretty-ok self published thriller about our Yellowstone National SuperVolcano blowing its load and destroying the world. It may not be the most prestigious literary offering I can give you, but it’s down right entertaining if I do say so myself. Let’s see if it makes it to be the first book I finish reading in 2015.
