Boss called me into today and I really thought I was in trouble when she told me to shut the door, then said I wasn't in trouble. LOL She said that they loved having me on the team and gave me a late holiday bonus check! So unexpected from our small non-profit of 10 staffers. I started a few months ago and have felt like I'm struggling to learn everything, but it seems like my work is appreciated and I will get it.

I HATE websites/companies that force you to sign up in order to view their page/products or learn more about them. For example, that "get paid to write" ad on this website...you can't even do any research on it without signing up. I either have to pass or put in false information to view it because let's get real, when you put in your real info, they'll keep emailing you until you unsub and then they'll email a few more times until the unsub kicks in. And they might sell your email to others so you end up with tons of spam.

In response to a confession. This sounds like a terrific way to get your credit card info stolen. I would never, ever link my debit card to anything online either...it just isn't secure enough. Apps like this basically charge you to help you save a little money. I mean, I'm sorry, but I don't get the point? You're paying money to save money? It just seems easier to look for coupons for things you frequently buy and put a chunk of your paycheck into an IRA or something so you don't spend it all before you get a chance to save it.

So... paperclips. Not rocket science, right? Pretty simple little tool. I have a client that can't figure them out. The whole concept of how they work escapes him. I find them in with his paperwork all bent up and poked through papers. *smh* This guy can't find his ass with both hands.

I’ve all but decided to move back to Colorado after my visit to see family over the holidays. I’d wait till summer so ds is out of preschool, before kindergarten starts. The last time I moved out of the state was when I married exh and everything was taken care of/decided for me. What important things do I need to know, do, research, prepare for, or whatever before and during my move? I’ll be moving in with family when I first get there so a place to stay isn’t high on my list. But other than that I’m pretty much clueless, any advice would be great.

In response to a confession. My MIL was just telling me a story about how she had to go to work even though she knew she was coming down with the stomach flu that was going around the hospital. A drunk girl she was taking care of threw up all over her and started her puking, which got the dr puking. And when mil was done they told her to use her lunch break to clean up and have one of the other nurses set her up with an iv so she could make it through the rest of her shift. Nurses deserve a medal.

Praise the Lord. My dad found a nursing student who is willing to stay all day with my mom for a few weeks while she is healing from her broken arm. This girl is apparently trying to get volunteer experience working with dementia patients and knows what she is doing--she has a CNA license--and she is a very sweet girl. I'm so happy my dad found someone at least for a while. He is trying to find a long-term solution for my mom, but this at least buys us some time.

I just read about an investment app called Acorns. Basically you sign up and link your debit and credit cards, and every purchase is rounded up to the next dollar. The extra cents go into your Acorns account, where it's invested. You can schedule extra deposits, and if you use your cards at certain retailers, they will also contribute to the account. The service costs $1/mo for under $5000 and then 25% per year of your balance over that. This sounds like something I'd like to do. Has anyone tried this?

I hate my DH's partner so freaking much.He treats my DH like shit, everything either of us says is wrong or stupid, he has no empathy, he treats his own wife like shit. But my DH thinks he hung the effing moon because he "helped" my DH find a new job, which DH has spent 90% of his time covering for that guy. Partner ruined our hospital stay with our newborn because he conveniently couldn't handle the stress of helping my DH for a couple of days, so I was left in hospital with a newborn by myself dealing with a ton of health issues. But when he went on a MONTH LONG honeymoon, my DH spent all his spare time working partner's stuff with no complaints. When we went on vacation for five days (ONE time in 6 years), my DH had to hire someone else and lost tons of money because partner again couldn't handle the workload. But tell me again how the sun shines out of his ass. And I can't say a word against him, or my DH loses his mind and says I'm seeing it wrong.Lord help me, but I hate him.
