Tonight we have our first web design class. I’m looking forward to it. I am not sure if we have to create a web page, or if they’ll let us tinker with what we have – I would want to play with my blogs, of course. But, we’ll see.

I know I’ve been going on and on about finding a way to mail record albums safely and efficiently. Well, today some yarn I ordered arrived at my doorstep in a perfect size box for mailing albums. I am very pleased. Now I need to get more of the same kind. We’ve experimented with mailers and boxes and shipping sleeves, but they all seem so very fragile. Like, if someone would put something heavy on top of it – the record would break. I know I need to put the word “Fragile” on it, but that doesn’t mean anything – we’ve all experienced broken stuff from the mail. Oh well, I think we found a solution. Looks like that’s what we’ll be doing this afternoon.

I really don’t think we have anything planned for this holiday weekend. I hope to see a movie or two – maybe rent a couple. That seems like a good plan. Especially because today is pay day. The college isn’t open on Fridays during the summers, and since we get paid on the last working day of the month – today is pay day! I’ve never understood why lots of education places only pay once a month. That can suck. Because it seems like you’re loaded during the first week of the month, but then by the last week, it seems like pay day was ages ago. I especially hate December. Since it’s the last working day of the month, we get our check like December 10th or something, then we don’t get another one till the last day of January. That’s like 7 weeks – during the holidays! It sucks! I try and prepare for it, but the last week in January is always miserable for everyone at the college. Very odd pay schedule. My sister-in-law is a teacher too, and they get paid that way too? Why? I mean, every single employer in the world has budget issues and would probably love to hold off pay day till the end of each month. But that’s the way the cookie crumbles…
