Last night when Jay got home he said,
"so did the armored truck have to escort you to the library today?"-
I laughed and he said...
"I don't even want to know"
You see, I had some books checked out for a while. We had the power outage. Things were in disarray. We left town, we came back to town, people were sick. I had the cards out to renew online but just did not get it done.
I had promised Luke a trip to the library, and I wanted to see if they had the magazine REAL SIMPLE, so I could check out what Meghan had read, and do the quiz like she did.
So I finally returned the books, and checked on the fine.
JAY STOP READING NOW!
This is where $$ signs start flying all over the place. The total for my laziness?
Can I just tell you all the things I thought of that I could have paid for with that $30-
That $30 could have been a lot of things.
That $30 could have been a copayment for one of the many dr. visits this week.
That $30 could have been a family dinner out.
That $30 could have been 3o days of sonic drinks.
That $30 could have been a manicure.
That $30 could have been a trip to hobby lobby,
or to target.
That $30 could have been a lot things....my mind is going numb thinking of how much my laziness cost me.
So in the spirit of the new year, and making resolutions...I am setting a goal of returning things on time. Come on, its not like I live far away from the library. AND really, you can renew online.
So in that spirit, I am compiling a list.
A $30 list.
I am going to make a list of all things that I can come up with, that I could spend $30 on, instead of fines. Not to beat myself up, but to encourage myself to not let this happen again.
So help me will ya?
List anything you can think of that $30 would go towards.
It can be serious, it can be funny.
Help me out.
