I am catching up on some blog reading today. Beacause I have paperwork that I SHOULD be doing.
A few weeks ago I had an experience that deserves to be posted here. It proves that I am still capable of putting the Daddy in ADHDaddy.
The Boss Lady found a good deal on gasoline at a local grocery store. 11 cents off of each gallon that you buy with one of their store prepaid "gift" cards was too good to pass up. She bought $300 worth of cards, to keep our cars fueled up for the month. I used the card for my car 1 time. Once. I topped off with $20 worth of gas since I don't pass the grocery store very often.
A few days later I decided to get all of the trash out of the passenger's floorboard of my car as I was walking into the school. Evidently the gift card was in the pile and I didn't realize it for a few days. Yep, I threw away $130. Nice! I checked the trashcan every time I walked by it for two days, but our custodians are top notch.
Last week I was finally getting around to helping with the laundry mountain. As I picked up a load of work clothes to haul them to the washer, there on the floor, where the pile had been was the "thrown away" gift card. I took it right then a gassed up both cars. I spent that sucker as quick as I could, so that I wouldn't lose it again.
