I think this is the first day of this school year that there have been NO calls for an assignment. I turned down an assignment yesterday because Claudette and I both had dentist appointments.
One of the reasons I started subbing, is to supplement our income to backfill the “unexpected” bills that come with age (ours, the car and the house).
Instead of adding the bills up in $US, which is very depressing, I now tend to calculate our expenses in $SD (Dollars per Subbing Day)
This week’s total:
Tires for the car: 7 $SD
Dentist bill for drilling, filling and crowning my tooth stump: 7.5 $SD
Another dentist bill for drilling, filling and crowning Claudette’s tooth stump (same tooth location): 7.5 $SD
Now, doesn’t 22 $SD sound much better than 2175.00 $US?
