I woke up this morning to get ready to do my every other Wednesday food bank run for the YWCA, and saw that it was snowing pretty steadily. I normally have to leave at 7:00, but had decided to leave earlier than that on account of the snow. When I told Mark, he was adamant that I not go. So, he went instead. I don't know what that says exactly--that I have a gallant husband or that I stink as a driver. Maybe it's both!
The really rotten thing was that I decided to check the news and discovered that school had been canceled for the day. Now, normally I would have been doing cartwheels (well, maybe just somersaults) over that news because I really love spending a cuddly day inside together with the kids on snow days. But I was scheduled to work at Ten Thousand Villages today! Shoot! I would missed all the fun. Mark got back from the Y, and I ran out the door to catch the bus to the shop. We didn't have a lot of clients today, but I was pretty productive anyway. I translated a couple documents, entered inventory into the computer, and cleaned the bathroom. Oh yeah, and I squabbled with a man over 6 cents. He didn't understand why there was a tax (Goods and Services Tax) on his dried mangoes. I guess he thought that was something we made up! Usually TTV clients are so sweet and understanding about everything--mistakes, waiting in line, etc., but this guy was irritating.
