Oh, I know. My doctor wanted me to get a light box, and even submitted the paperwork to try and get my insurance to approve it. At that time, a fairly cheap one with full-spectrum light was close to $800, which was way over my budget without the insurance. Then, when they finally did approve it, I couldn't get it because of some problem with the company not having a proper code, or some such BS. So I never got it.
Rules for Teachers, 1872:
Teachers each day will fill lamps, clean chimneys.
Each teacher will bring a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the day's session
Make your pens carefully. You may whittle nibs to the individual taste of the pupils.
Men teachers may take one evening each week for courting purposes, or two evenings a week if they go to church regularly.
After ten hours in school, the teachers may spend the remaining time reading the Bible or other good books.
Women teachers who marry or engage in unseemly conduct will be dismissed.
Every teacher should lay aside from each pay a goodly sum of his earnings for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden on society.
Any teacher who smokes, uses liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls, or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intention, integrity and honesty.
The teacher who performs his labor faithfully and without fault for five years will be given an increase of twenty-five cents per week in his pay, providing the Board of Education approves.
Oh no, that stinks!
I don't know how it will be. It's a conference on helping teenagers with independent living skills. A lot of kids that are in foster care as teens never return home, and even if the plan is for them to return home, there has to be a back-up plan to prepare them to make it on their own in the event that they are not able to. Obviously, most of these kids are from dysfunctional homes anyway, or they wouldn't be in foster care, so it isn't surprising that a lot, if not most, of them are sadly lacking in living skills. I kinda got roped into going to this thing, so I am trying to make the best of it. I'm sure it will be useful information, it's just that being gone all this week, I will get so far behind at the office that it will be hard to catch up.
Welllll, as long as you can FReep, you'll be OK...
Yeah, it's always tough to catch up but that sounds like a noble cause. I've been taking some leadership classes here and there, on-site, but even those take time. I'm such a homebody anymore, especially after 9/11, all I want to do is stay home with my cats, garden, read, look at the mountains. Oh, yes, and torment my husband by being online 24-7 :)
Neither of the above....Use to have a 'hot mamma' to keep me warm nights, now I just turn up the electric blanket a few more notches....So there...lol...
Oh, but I probably WON'T get to FReep while I'm there, I mean unless I happen to go someplace that has internet access. Dang! I need a laptiop for these occasions!
You could sit on my laptiop...
I would love to be able to stay home and work on my house and garden. I don't have a husband to torment....yet and no kids at home. Of course, in my work there will always be the temptation to adopt. LOL!
I think I'm becoming agorophobic and even more anti-social as I get older. Or, maybe the world is just getting more crowded. At any rate, we may adopt one of these days. Whenever I hear about the poor orphans (like in the Sudan), I just want to take one in my arms immediately. That could be why we are up to nine cats.
This unmarried mother must have been 14 when she got pregnant, and the father 19 or 20.
I see things every day that would break your heart. There was a girl that had to go before the judge this morning, wasn't my case, but a co-worker's. This girl is 15 years old (barely) and just as cute as can be. Her mom abandoned her and her dad is in prison. She became very promiscuous, presumably to make herself feel like she mattered. She's been trying to stop that behavior and she likes a boy at her church, and now she is hoping that she can still be adipted. She wants to go in the Navy and is already in ROTC at her school. Not only does she want to go in the Navy, but she wants to go to college so she can go in as an officer.
Ohmygosh, I do not know how you do it. You must be an angel. I would LOVE to help someone like that. We even have a spare bedroom AND a Catholic high school that is very nearby.
