Laziness Costs Money

I just came to that realization, even though everybody else in the free world probably already knew it, and my mom has been trying to drill into my head for many, many years.

This morning, I was running late (as usual), because I pressed the snooze button too much (as usual) because I was up late watching Celebrity Rehab on (as usual), and didn't have time to make breakfast. So I grabbed an English muffin, some turkey bacon, and decided to buy whatever else I needed to eat today. I was seriously craving a hard boiled egg (must be low on protein) and some pineapple, so I bought some at the deli by my job. You know, the kind that charges you by the pound? Well, guess how much two hard boiled eggs, three chunks of cantaloupe and two slices of pineapple cost me? FOUR DOLLARS.

Meanwhile at home, I have a dozen organic, free range eggs in the fridge that only cost me $2.49, and a whole cantaloupe I bought for two bucks.

You do the math...and here I spend so much time wondering why at the end of the month I'm always praying for my rent check to clear! Duh!!

All this on the day when I was supposed to be on a plane to sunny California for L's birthday extravaganza, but couldn't due to lack of funds.

I'm salty!!

* done with being lazy*
now that I'm off the couch, I'll be a force to be reckoned with, the likes of which you have NEVER seen!!
