In Gomez-speak "Tony, would you please wash the car for me?" also loosely translates into "Sommer, put on your bathing suit and play in the mud."
So my husband says to me, "My dad really enjoys reading your blog" and immediately I'm making a mental list of all the slightly embarrassing posts I've written. Really dad, I've never encouraged Sommer to eat her boogers, it was clearly a one time thing. And that time Tony got hit at the Paintball tournament? The doctor assured us that he'll eventually lose that third nipple. In all truthfulness, my father in law is an awesome man with a great sense of humor, so I'm glad he gets a chance to see what's happening on our side of the equator. Welcome to the blog dad! You can visit Tony, Hope's and the family blogs too. Just click on their names or any of the words in bold and it will take you straight to other stories and blogs.
Bree wrote about the scandalous Education Day pay last Wednesday and instead of commenting, I thought I'd put my two cents in. Several staff, including myself received less than we were expecting. The underpayment ranged from $20 to $240. I checked with payroll on Friday and found out that the Chapter 7 deductions came from the local government (Finance Dept). Usually PSS will get a notice that explains any discrepancy on pay, but they didn't see this one coming. Since it was Thanksgiving on the mainland, they didn't want to call the Finance Officer, but said that on Monday I'd get some news to share with my staff. My opinion? It wasn't a mistake, but rather a sneaky way for the government to find an extra funding cushion. Tell everyone there was a computer error, and that they'll get their Chapter 7 overpayment back, but in the meantime their using that money to pay for something else. It's just a theory based on my mistrust of government practices, especially with our hard earned taxpayer dollars. Hopefully I'm wrong and there really is no mismanagement.
