waiting for the traffic to clear

I have to say, I'm not going to miss this business of hanging out in the office until 1830-1900 waiting for the traffic on 95N/495E to clear so I can get over the bridge and "home" to Mom's. Right now things are an ugly bloody red on the traffic maps from Van Dorn Avenue clear over the river to Indian Head Highway. Taking 395 North through the District isn't an option today either.

After screwing up my pay for a month and a half, the payroll section finally did me a favor - they double-paid me on this week's check, dropping the second half into my SunTrust account on Tuesday.
Obviously, I'm not going to run right out and spend it all, considering that I have a deposit and January rent to come out of it (to say nothing of my new, lower truck insurance ^__^) but the early cash does allow me to get some things done earlier than I might have otherwise. Of course, payroll is going to make up for this by not paying me on 12/31, but that's okay. I'll manage...the next paycheck will be on 1/14 and I'll probably get it in the wee hours of 1/12 since the problem with my direct deposit has been fixed. w00t.

No real plans for Christmas - I have a couple of things to pick up for family, to say nothing of cards. #^__^# I'll probably wind up hanging out with Mom and catching the early Mass before heading out to visit P and RS. I have to be back at work on Boxing Day, so nothing too late is on the agenda.

In the meantime, we've been getting deluged by food here at the Little Construction Company That Could. Our subcontractors have been sending over cheesecake, decorative fruit arrangements, and entirely too much in the way of chocolate, cookies, and nuts. Except for the fruit, none of this is helping the medical situation mentioned in the last post...

    Thank you! I certainly hope the times are less interesting this year, at least on a personal level.

    Happy birthday, and I hope your next year is less "interesting" than this one!

    Thank you. I knew I left the comments open for a reason.

    The position with the election board is temporary, through the end of the election, and working for Block is seasonal as well. I am semi-retired on disability, so employment security is not a major…

    It seems to me those are governmental jobs you are doing part time. If you can have one of those, you ought to have better employment security.
