Three Hours

That was my commute TO work today ... THREE HOURS.

They have not yet fixed the stoplights ... they are still blinking or completely out. So it's taking everyone way too long to get to work. HR has approved new Hurricane Hours and I am taking them! Starting tomorrow it's 6-3 if you want to work those hours and I DO ... because either way I have to leave my house at 5 - I may as well get here, work and go on home. GEEZ.

It took me 1.5 hours to get 10 minutes down the road. I called Conrad freaking out and he told me the next highway I took to work looked clear (from the news) Thank goodness he was right! I was about to turn around and go home.

Went grocery shopping last night and got SOME stuff, but didn't replace it all. I did the ketchup, mustard, mayo, jalepeno, sour cream, taco sauce, salad dressing route last night. Next week I'll do the minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, worcheshire, teriaki, marinade route. I can't replace it all at one time. I did have coupons that ended up taking about $20 off the total.

I also had to get milk, eggs, bread, butter and those sort of things ... not to mention enough dinners to take us to next payday. It's going to be soup and sandwiches for awhile til we sort of get the budget back on track. I ate out enough to last me awhile anyway.

Ugh. What a mess. This hurricane gets you from every angle, huh? I'm sorry you have to deal with all this.
