#170 - I am Beat and I still have 2 days to go!

Well today was a teaching day! I was up to late last night getting ready, so 5:30 am came way to early this morning!

This is the first time I taught this course, it was a bit painful. I have material that I have to cover and most of the people in the course had used Excel before so it was a review for a lot of them. I have a few newbie's but not to many. It will be interesting to see how the course reviews go after the class is over. I SUCK at judging people so I guess I will have to wait and see!

The worst part is we are just burning through the material so I had to come home tonight and create some new exercises for them that will hopefully help them learn something else. The worst part is I can't get crazy and show to many other functions are they are covered in the next level... sometimes you feel stuck as an instructor! Only one more day to go and I will be done. I am too much of a worrier, I want to please everyone... I need to let goooooo *insert ommmmmhmmmmmmmmmm here* :)

The mother came to look after the kids today. The part where she showed up in the morning wasn't much fun, but after work it wasn't so bad. She is such a downer. She started complaining about how the government is changing percentages for medical coverages for things such as drugs. They will have to pay up to a certain percentage of their income before they get refunded any of their prescription costs. She of course is assuming that they are going to need thousands and thousands of dollars of medication in the future. (Neither of them have any "real" issues currently) Well told her she is part of the baby boomer generation and there aren't enough of us youngins to support them so I guess they will have to pay a little. (That went over well as you could imagine.) She kept going on and on. So finally I looked at her and said WELL at least you didn't have to pay to have children! (I was actually awake enough to come back with something that shut her up!)

Hmm let me do the math, if you have to pay $1000 a year for the first portion of your medical bills... it will take you at least 20 years to put out part of what we put out for IVF. So lets say she all of a sudden needs a tonne of meds at say 70 years old (cause Dad isn't allowed to retired until 65 anyway so they will have full coverage until then. So I am assuming they will be somewhat healthy for another 5 years after retirement). Well anyway that would mean she would have to live until she is 90 to spend almost as much as we have on Medical costs for our kids... oh ya and add another $30,000 to that amount for some jaw surgery that my husband needed to fix some major headaches that he used to have (it was considered cosmetic... even though that wasn't why he had it done??) So you can add another 30 years onto the 90. Then maybe well will be even. God help me if she makes it to 120, I am sure she will complain that she finally spent as much money as we did! Only she shouldn't have to because she's thinks she is entitled! (Now I am all for free health care, but in the end someone has to pay for it somewhere, so I say spread it around! :) ) WOW that was a rant now wasn't it?

Tomorrow is going to be a loooong day, I go from teaching to my other job. I won't be home until after 9:30pm...


THINGS THAT BUG ME
- when I copy the wrong files for my samples (no one noticed though! It's easy to 'fake it' when you are doing level 1, no complex formulas! :)
- 5:30am mornings
- my hair... I am in desperate need of a hair cut!

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY
- doing a good job of 'faking it' when I have the wrong files
- actually being able to read my notes!

KIDDO NOTES
I barely got to see my kiddos today. I was nice to come home to their hugs and kisses though! I felt so guilty as I had to do some prep for tomorrow so I didn't get a lot of time to spend with them tonight!

My hats off to all you women who can managed working full time, kiddos, getting dinner on the table etc. It's going to be hard for me to make it through the next 3 days, and that's not even a full WEEK!

I am sad that tomorrow I will not see them in the morning and they will be in bed by the time I get home. :( I also work Saturday so there won't be much quality time until Sunday *sigh*


Good night!

My kiddos had their first day of daycare/preschool and I missed them so much but I felt guilty I didn't even think to call to see how they were.
It must be hard to have to work and miss you kids for a whole day.(hugs)

Some people don't get how much we pay to have our kids.*sigh* now that should be free and the governments wouldn't have to import foreign peoples to boost the population and then there would be more youngins to support the next generation.
Loads of infertilies would have had more kids if they could afford IVF.
Off my box now ! LOl

You go, Girl for putting your mom in her place. What a Yenta! (Yiddish word for chronic complainer). I always laugh when I see your profile where it says, "quit my job/career", Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha! You have three jobs including the Mommy job, so thank you for the chuckle.
