    I was very happy work and school were canceled yesterday for the kids. I am thankful DH took a vacation day instead of waiting to see if his boss shut down the plant Thursday. As it turns out his office-mate made it in. They dismissed everyone at 1030 am. This is when it was really getting bad...

I started not to post here but I was lazy and...

    is being eliminated in order to keep the coaches. They will be given my English classes. Fortunately, we have 2 years of both of our salaries in savings. I decided to go to grad school, get my masters, and raise our son until kindergarten. It's going to be a stretch, because we will have to...

  9. Careers
    So a while ago, I had an issue with my supervisor expecting me to cover work expenses out of my own money and wait to be reimbursed. That got resolved when I went over her head. Now I work with a petty chas float and she tops it up when it gets low. She never submits her claims on time, and...

    Yesterday I started teaching dd10 to sew. She spend the afternoon sewing straight lines on looseleaf paper. Then we graduated to corners, and circles and swirls. She did fantastic. Today, if we have time, she'll to the same, but this time with felt, to get a feel for fabric. If that goes well...

    I am homeschooling my 16 yr old daughter this year for the first time. I have thought about doing this years ago but have always been working and never found the time or thought I couldn't do it. However this year we moved from Mississippi to Alabama. Upon moving here we found out that the...
