The new company came back with a counter offer (now they will pay for half of the families insurance – making it almost 3 times cheaper than what we pay now). Plus, they will fill up our HSA account with 2k to start with. Usually, WE put in money to start with.
They are also going back to discuss personal days/sick days. MD explained why he couldn’t take the job – basically in case he needs time off for ian, he can get it no problem where he’s at, and the new place would be skeleton crew until they grew more. So they said — wait please, don’t decide yet. Let us see what we can do.
They really want him. He’s really torn. We KNOW they will someday grow into a monster, and MD will be top dog being there from the get go, that’s what they say anyway, but it’s scary now. Not that they aren’t going to pay him well if he does there, but just him for however long until they grow enough to hire more? Scary.
However, I do admit, that i like the ‘rare ot’ piece. I would like him home more. And with this job, he’ll make the same even without the OT. Still missing his commissions, but with the health care money we’ll save…… oh well shit.
Anyway, waiting to wake up the kids and start the day.
i’m so stupid. In lab today we are marching down to the pond and collecting water to study under the microscopes. Why am I excited about this? I have a psychology quiz today that I don’t think I’m 100% prepared for. Why am I still excited about this? What magical power does College have? It’s fascinating. I was the smart kid who could not wait to get out of school. I hated it. I loathed it. Nothing they said interested me. Now, everything interests me. Ok, except the music. I just can’t. Wait until I hear more. Then maybe I’ll change my mind.
I stressed all that time about my library and bibliography that I turned in – 5 days early I might add. He’s not even grading them! What kind of shit is that? I worked hard and long on that shit and i want a grade. lol
We were looking at the Les Miserables video and one of the comments said fucking epic. The prof, a little cute old guy of about 65ish walks over to the screen , leans down, and squints at the words — then he laughs and says – fucking epic? that’s the most succinct honest comment I’ve seen. I laughed – at not just his comment, but at the Teacher dropping the F bomb. I love college.
