Did I ever you tell you about my other job? Yeah, I have another job as a chauffer.
I was on duty full-time today.
Of course, I had to get up at 5:00 am in order to get a workout in before my official shift started. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to fit it in at all. Here's what my day looked like:
5:30 am - leave for the gym
6:30 am - return home
7:30 am - leave home to take the Princess to the DMV so she could take her test for her learner's permit. She passed!!!!!!
10:00 am - drive her home from the DMV
10:45 am - drive her to a fund raising event for her step team
I had some personal errands of my own to run so I went to the bookstore to pick up Terry McMillan's latest and the O bookclub pick. I also ran into Tarjay to get some shower curtain liners.
1:45 pm - pick her up from the fund raising event
2:20 pm - take her to the mall so she could buy a new outfit for later that evening.
3:00 pm - get into an argument with her about said outfit and leave her and go to Sephora for some of my own retail therapy.
4:15 pm - leave the mall and head back to the house
5:45 pm - leave the house to pick up one of her friends that will be joining her for dinner.
6:00 pm - take her and the friend to the restaurant where she will be celebrating her birthday and getting her permit with more of her friends.
6:30 pm - return home, prepare the spaghetti alla puttenesca and open the bottle of red wine and plan to enjoy the rest of the evening secure in the knowledge that I won't have to leave the house again because the princess is spending the night at her girlfriend's house.
7:45 pm - get a text from the Princess requesting a ride after the movie because her girlfriend's mother bailed.
I am so happy she passed her test today and got her learner's permit. That means that in about nine months I'll be able to hang up my chauffer's cap.
