If you are still here, you need a hobby!

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.
