Short Bus Minute

Some numbers just do not add up.
Like any number that appears in my checking account. For whatever reason, no matter how good intentioned I am about keeping a checking account registry and marking down reciepts and purchases, when it comes to the checking of the balance against the bank, I am always way off. I get frustrated, worried about the next possible NSF charge, I go back and poor over my records, do the comparisons and sure enough, I have always forgotten something, some check, some forgotten a purchase, something and have to suck it up on PB&J's until I can afford the store again.
Then there are these moments that keep haunting me at the gym.
The gym I use has a sign up wall for the cardio machines, limited machines, lots of people, = you have to sign up for a time. Now the first time I got busted on machine for not signing up and subsequently kicked off, I didn't mind so much, I didn't follow the rules, no running in place. Okay I got it. The next three times it happened because I forgot to sign up for more than one 15 minute increment or forgot to sign up for the right time, or right machine... though everything is labeled , and easy to read and there is a clock right there = I am forever a short bus passenger. I like to think I err at the gym becasue it is so just early in the morning. But really, I can be a big ole dork on any occassion. Heres to looking at getting kicked off a treadmill soon.

In support of a friend, who just happens to be snowed in, in CO right now.... How I wish I was there.
