Cool, I thought. I can take a break, go to the airport a little early, snag my two passengers, and book it to Gainesville early, meaning I might get home by 1:00 instead of 1:30.
But of course, life is never that simple.
Jennifer informed me when I strolled into the office that not one, not two, but all THREE of my passengers were delayed (yes, unbeknownst to me, I'd scraped up another one between 11:45 and 19:15) and wouldn't be in until around 21:30 at the earliest.
Sigh. The only good side, I suppose, is that I'll get an extra hour of pay out of the deal. So, after taxes, I earned around $100 today... yippee!
The breakdown of work hours thus far:
26/12 - 13h15m
27/12 - no work
28/12 - no work
29/12 - 9h15m
30/12 - 13h15m
31/12 - 4h30m
01/01 - no work
02/01 - (now) 14h
03/01 - (tomorrow) no work
04/01 - (next day) 13h
05/01 - ?
06/01 - ?
07/01 - ?
08/01 - Moving back to Gainesville!
09/01 - Classes start!
It's a lot of long days, yes, but at least it's good for my pocketbook.
No work tomorrow, though - dentist and Roth-IRA appointments in the morning, then (hopefully!) finally meeting up with Clautje in the afternoon, then swimming at 18:30 and then, in all likelihood, FINALLY going to see Narnia with Faith (now that I've reread the book). In any spare time, I need to procure a copy of the January Glamour (because Heather is in it) and try to get out to Julington Creek to give my cousins their long-overdue Christmas presents.
... In other news, the Jaguars smashed Tennessee into tiny little pieces yesterday (the phrase that kept going through my mind was 'a hot knife through butter') and go to New England on Saturday to play the Patriots at 8pm (thus the reason I'm moving back to, as Monique has dubbed it, the G-Spot on Sunday rather than on Friday, since we don't have cable in the apartment). Send good vibes their way!
