rough day?

Today we got up early! 5:15 early. I was able to get in 4 miles + 20 minutes elliptical while Devin studied.

The rest of the day was alright... until I learned that the utah legislature is cutting the education budget even more and taking out $350 from a teacher's salary EACH MONTH. Therefore, if i continue teaching, I will only make about $1,700 per month. Might as well be on welfare....

The result of this new piece of information was lots of skittle eating, job searching, and pro/con lists. (special thanks to mother for the note pad of pro/con lists she gave us for christmas)

Devin came home to see this:

Devin's response was, "Rough day??"


  1. Come work for the family business. It is real fun!!!

  2. We get by on a lot less money and have a baby! :) It is possible... but it still sucks the pay for teachers is so low!! cool note pad. haha.

  3. Sorry to hear about your bad day. Good thing you have Devin there. Also a good thing were the words that I believe Julie Beck said. "We don’t have children because we have money, because we have means. We have children with faith." We love you guys. Paul

  4. I can't believe that they're cutting teacher's salary in Utah. That is so wrong on so many levels. Still, on the Pro side you can add "have the opportunity to influence young people's lives for good." I'm sure all of your students could say that about you and that's definitely something to feel good about : )


Thanks for your comment!
