Hurricane Sandy Collection

Last week my daughter sat at dinner and said that she wanted to collect money to give to the people that lost everything in Hurricane Sandy. I asked her how she wanted to do that. She said that she will sing and people will give her money. I asked where she would sing - She has all the answers. She said she will sing in the driveway. Adam said that not many people would see her singing in the driveway. So she said - well how about at Myrtle Avenue or Stop and Shop.
All the idea of a 5 year old girl. She is a Daisy Girl Scout.
So were decided to organize a collection through Girl Scouts.
I can not promise she will sing though.

Driving... Arggh.

Recently my husband got a new job and his hours have been insane. I love in Queens and work in Manhattan. My mornings and evenings and life has been crazy. I was always so used to him driving the girls and I around but now I have to drive and oh boy do I hate it.

In the morning I have to drive my Samantha to school and then Madeline to Grandma's house.
This would be easy except a main street in my neighborhood is closed off for paving.
Why do they do this on crazy hectic mornings? There are about 4 or 5 schools within that vicinity and a ton of traffic.

So after I drop the kids off I have to find parking, which there is never any by the train station. So I park a little bit away. Luckily today alternate side of the street parking was suspended. Normally Tuesdays and Wednesdays it is impossible to find parking because of alternate side parking. I will never understand why it still exists. People should be responsible for cleaning their own mess. I never really see the street cleaning trucks but I will give it the benefit of the doubt that they do exist. In my opinion they are a waste of tax payer money and just an inconvenience for drivers.

Just another frustrating day...
