Yesterday was officially "freeze your face off" cold. I didn't want to leave the house but I did. The Princess has story time at the library & I needed a few things so I could make Chili for dinner. Once again I knew what I was having but didn't have all the stuff to make it. Happens to me a lot. I should of stayed home & made something else for dinner. It was REALLY cold out. Even the Princess was complaining. AND I ended up going out again when Pookie got home. The garage called & said the Tank was done. I really missed driving my truck. While it was spending a few days at the Spa I had to drive our little pickup. It has a bench seat. When you put the car seat in, there is not a lot of room for the 3rd person that has to go. We were very close whenever we went anywhere. I guess it all depends on what you are used to driving. I am used to driving with the seat up as far as it will go & NOT having my passenger sit in my lap.
I had no idea just how close I sat when I drove until I rode with Queenie. She drives with the seat in the same spot I do. As a passenger you have NO leg room & the window is really close to your face. Smitty won't ride with me in the front any more. At 6 feet tall he just can't fold himself that small. He rides in the back. Makes me feel like a taxi driver.
But as a Mom that is my job. I am Chef, Laundry Goddess, Cleaning Queen, Referee, Accountant, Time Keeper & Taxi Driver. It's a job I love & hate. Most of the time I love it more then I hate it, but there are THOSE DAYS when it just doesn't pay to get out of bed.

Wait a minute. I can't remember EVER getting a check for this job. I should be making some really big bucks for doing EVERYTHING around here. In my next life I am going to get paid for this job. Scratch that. In my next life I am marrying a rich guy. Problem solved.
