This is supposed to be a "Thursday" thing, but it seems appropriate to post a sarcastic "Thank You Very Much" today.
*A big shout-out to the dog trainer who called in sick last night. (Pick up the phone and call your customers!) We had driven 30 miles (one way) to U town only to be told he wasn't there. Did I mention that is a total of 60 miles with Baxter? *sigh*
*Thank you, Blogger. If I want to go to my dashboard, I have to go to the new design feature every. single. time. I don't plan to create a new design, but I still have to go through that feature. Every. Single. Time. Just bring back the regular dashboard option! Please!
*And a huge thank you to gray hair. Teaching isn't a great profession in which to grow old. (Especially the teaching of teenagers.) Thanks to my gray hair, every six weeks I get to spend a chunk of money and time to wash that gray right out of my hair.
*Finally, thanks to our health insurance company for going up 16% next year. My salary is frozen. Yep. I guess you could say I am getting a pay cut. At least, I'm going to be taking home quite a bit less money. *Lovely*
So there is my moaning for this Friday.
On a side note-
1. Because of our time and trouble, they are giving us half-price tuition to dog training and a free grooming session. (Rule #1: Keep the customer happy.)
2. My hair should be a really pretty silver gray when I finally suck it up and nix the hair color. (In about ten years!)
3. At least I have a job and insurance. I should sincerely thank our school district for allowing me to teach the students of this community for 28 years and contracting me for the 29th. (And I'm finding it difficult to believe that next year will be my 32nd year of teaching! Where does the time go?!)
