  • I had to question Heather further after we found out what happened. When I told Clint what happened, he wanted to go up to the school and beat the shit out of some parents. I was right there with him. I told Heather that when she took the money, she gave into bullying and she was like, I never thought of it that way. I told her to remember last school year, when one girl kept pushing her down at recess and trying to break her glasses and she stood up to her and the girl stopped messing with her. I told Heather to tell those kids that her lunch is probably 10 times better than there lunch is. I'd really hate to hear some of the stuff their parents say that their kids over hear.

    • That's a great idea! She could even turn it around on them with the teasing "you have to eat SCHOOL food - you know that the government subsidizes that" or "You have to eat the yucky school food - my family can do better than that!". What would be awesome is if the teacher did one of those projects like "blue eyes are smarter than brown eyes" but in a money format so that the kids could gain some understanding of "having money" and "having no money" as this lesson would be a great one for kids who will most likely walk that line back and forth through life.

      • Think I need to start making more chicken legs for Heather to pack for school. It's funny, in 6th grade, packing is the cool thing to do.

        • Everything went well with Heather at school today. We got the money back, so all is well on that point. The new job is going well. I like the people that I work with so that is a major plus.

          It was Taco Tuesday tonight and I made tacos and homemade spanish rice. The rice was amazing. I browned the rice in bacon grease and that made it better than ever. I was very much impressed with it.

          • I killed my favorite pair of jeans this morning. SOB. Bent over and ripped the leg of my jeans in my thigh. I've had these jeans since 2008 so I guess I could say they've had a good life. I think its a sign I need to start doing something about my weight.

            • Yeah, I only have one pair of pants that fit comfortably. Time to stop F'ing around.

              • Our computer crashed last week. Can't even boot it in safe mode. It just keeps cycling and nothing happens. Clint's going to check with a friend and see how much he would charge us to build a new processor. Not too sure how long we'll be without one.

                Training seems to be going well. I do like my job thus far. It's nice to have a 30 minute round trip drive.

                Going to start working out tomorrow morning. I'm ready to finally do something about my body. Energy levels are back up. Found out I've had a B12 deficiency so I've been taking a sublingual supplement and feel pretty damn good.

                  • Just got our computer back today so I am back. Work has been going well. I really like it and hate the fact that if I want to get hired on after the assignment, I have to apply for the job and hope they have something starting after our assignment is over. I'm amazed at how much I understand of the health care system now, without having a major background in it. I actually feel confident about this job and am ready to bring it on.

                    Tristan and I have been taking B12 and folate supplements. Found out at the beginning of the month that we are both B12 deficient. The doc wanted us both to take b12 shots, but without insurance, I can't technically afford it so the doc advised us to take a sublingual b12 and we're both doing great with it. She has had no more episodes of wanting to pass out in class, and I have overwhelming bursts of energy. Didn't get a lot of sleep in last week, not sure what was causing that to be honest.

                    • Forgot to mention that Clint and I went out to a Mexican restaurant for dinner last night. The food wasn't really spicy but apparently my face flushed and got really red. I keep wondering if I have rosacea. I've had issues with this ever since I was in my early 20's and lately, its so bad that I can't even wash with my face with any soaps or anything. They get really dry, flaky and they hurt. I keep wondering if the Niacin that I am taking is causing the flare up? I'm thinking of taking it out(I am taking a bcomplex after all) and see what happens. It's freaking me out a lot that this happens to me. I've always flushed/blushed easily, but this is getting ridiculous.

                      • Apparently, my new employer does evaluations while in training? Who knew? Mine went very well. Almost too well. I'm scared. I got "exceeds expectations" due to knowledge and helping others out in class. First time I've ever HAD anything like this in my life. This makes up for when in kindergarten, I was almost held back for not playing well with others. Seriously. Mom fought them on it.

                        • Maybe you've finally found your niche! You said you liked it - that's usually another sign - some of us struggle a long time to find such things - I know I did!

                          • The only thing that sucks about this job is that its a temp job and if I want to get hired on, I have to apply to an open position(if they have any). We had to take a test today over everything we've learned through yesterday and I got a 100%. I'm still scared that its going too well.

                            • We started hiring everyone as temps at my old job and then made them permanent if they worked out because we got burned so many times in the interview and could only tell after working with someone for a while whether they were any good. The fact that you are doing so well indicates to me that you would have a good chance of hiring on permanently.

                              • Breathe girl. You are capable and smart. I hope a full time position opens up for you.
