Short Post, Long Day

Total Black: $2,419.37
Total Red: $231,219.37

This entire weekend has been daily trips to and/or from New York.  On Thursday, Thanksgiving morning, I rode the bus to my mother’s.  On Friday, I drove her car back to New York.  On Saturday, I drove the car back to Pennsylvania.  Today I drove it back out to New York and back to Pennsylvania.  It only took six hours.  I passed three separate accidents along the way.  And each time, the opposing traffic slowed to a crawl for no reason!  None.  There was nothing blocking our way except nosy neighbors.  Infuriating!  Now tomorrow I’ll make the trek back to New York, this time by bus.  Let’s just say I’m tired.  But I finally remembered to bring the paperwork I need for my meeting tomorrow with the judge.  I teased my mother and her female friends this evening over pizza, reminding them to think of me at thirty-three being so forgetful the next time someone tells them they’re getting forgetful.

Short post today.  I’m beat.  I neglected to mention in To Confess or Not to Confess that total black is way up because I borrowed rent money from my mother again.  I’ll get paid this week but it will only be for twenty-five hours since we lost Thursday and Friday due to the holiday.  But it’s back at it tomorrow . . . whenever I finish my morning meeting.  And I’ll be sure to send the money back to my mother as soon as possible.
