Pay Day

I'm a teacher, so when I was "planning my pregnancy", I had decided to get pregnant so that I would start my maternity leave in April.

Well, that was in a perfect world.

In THIS world, I got pregnant so that I would be able to end the Fall semester and begin the Spring semester within 12 weeks. I, after having talked it over with the hubby, decided to take the full 12 weeks allotted to maternity leave... Knowing that I would only get paid for five of those weeks.

I didn't feel it as much in March when I didn't receive a check especially since the lady at Central Office told me that my checks would be "significantly less"...

I assumed that "significantly less" meant that I'd receive half my check.

Long story short...

My paycheck was a wopping...

Three hundred dollars!!!!!

All of my shopping plans have had to be modified. I can only window shop for the next few weeks. In the meantime, I've found the perfect handbag and red shoes.

  1. lol! handbag and red shoes!

    I totally feel you on the pay front - I reduced my hours and next quarter I am only teaching 2 classes (and NONE for the 2 quarters after that). I gotta see how we will survive...
