    Signed my offer letter for ISU Spring semester.
    I got curious about this "other" menu. Clicked it, it immediately highlighted "refuse to sign," and took a massive effort and coronary to get out of that menu.

    But, DMACC jumped into the paycheck game today. Their decision to finally pay for my spring training class got the car out of the shop. So, nice work outta them, I guess?

    Read that first line as "Signed...letter...ISU" and thought I was in the wrong forum.

    I should amend it. I thought that they paid for that "training" in the spring, and they did.
    This is their way of waiting until this late date to start paying, and then cramming it together in 5 payments instead of 8.

    I so hate that place. This doesn't have to be complicated.

    This is criminal. If a private business did this they would have the State Attorney General after them.

    How do I temper my daughter's expectations of her school's athletic teams? Their varsity soccer team made it to the semifinal game at state. I took as many from her freshman team as our SUV would handle to that game. Last night I took her and a friend to the football semifinal which they won. They also had 3 cross country runners and 3 swimmers qualify for State. She is just a first trimester freshman and I think she is going to start expecting that their teams are all going to have this kind of success every year.

    When I was in high school our girls basketball team lost in the first round of the state tourney one year. Beyond that I made it to state in track my senior year and I think one other kid made it in tennis the same year. That was our entire success for my tenure at high school. Her school has greatly exceeded that in one term.

    They're criminal, but they paid that one in spring.
    Their pay stub is an exercise in confusion. It took a lot more work than it should.

    Why is it that when you buy something expensive, the price drops immediately after?

    Well got word tonight that the barn on my now cousins farm ( been in the family for nearly 150 years) that I believe was built by my great grandparents if not before is burning down currently. My uncle could see the glow from his house a few miles away.

    Debating going over and helping as I am sure they will be up all night tending to the cattle.

    I want to say thank you for all the well wishes. It's been a busy few days with lots more work to do. Still trying to get a unified plan for getting the house cleaned out. So much stuff.

    Holy crap I’m getting welts now. Drinking Benadryl, although all we have is children’s stuff that expired 3 years ago. So jumped up the dose.

    Starting to sound like more than a temporary allergic reaction. You might try using an Aveeno bath (basically, it's a body wash or bath additive made from an oatmeal base). Sounds weird, but it soothes your rash like calamine, without looking so freakin' strange.
    I know it goes against the grain, but if you're still broken out on Monday, you might want to pay a visit to the doc...
