I know many work places only give people 2 sick days a year and if these people are parents, chances are those 2 sick days are used when they need to stay home with a very sick child.
    Two is an odd number. I've heard of 2 personal days but 2 sick days are not the norm in this area. Laws govern that sick days can be used to care for an ill child as well as yourself here.

    I do wish more people in general would stay home when they are ill, but I know that isn't feasible. And remember what may appear as a cold to you may actually be an allergic response, so therefore not contagious. I know this from many years of personal experience.
    My DD's campus is like that now. You really don't have the option of staying in bed with you want to do well. Their health service department does have a really good policy in place for ill students with paper dates, presentations, speeches etc if you are really sick. It prevents instructors from messing with students and if the instructors don't bidge the emergency dean takes on the staff. Have little tolerance for staff breaking policy. They also make it difficult for staff to reach tenure. They make the staff prove annually that they are worthy of their jobs every year, kinda like most of us.

    My DD and I both have allergy issues. My DD's at times even mess with her breathing. Doc's tried to initially treat as asthma. Boy am I glad we are past those misdiagnosis'.


    Boys!! My mom had the same rules for being home sick too! If you stayed home from work/school due to illness, you did NOT leave the house unless you were going to/from the doctor, hospital, and/or pharmacy. That was it. You were homebound. I still follow that rule today. And if you were feeling better, great....but your butt still stayed home!
    It depended on what they had. Sometimes they had pink eye, fifths disease, ear infections fevers etc. We have a lot of property and I'd let them go outside, just not with other kids. Frankly, even if they did have intestinal issues, the yard was a good place to burn off energy. Sitting still didn't make it cure quicker, they just needed to be able to get to a rest room pronto, which isn't always possible in a school setting. Our nurses had a quick trigger finger for sending students home, a pain in the butt and most times they wanted them home through the following day.

    We were to give a detailed reason for why they were out when we called in. I never did. Too much info dangerous with them. What were they going to do to me?

    I also look HORRID in skinny jeans. That's the huge fashion now and my calves and skinny jeans don't get along. :-/
    99% of women do not. It people like my DD 92# and 5'4' that do. Beyond that everyone should take a look in the mirror. Have you tried Express? Shapely ones but mask what should be masked.

    I would love a pair of Jimmy Choos. I love all those shoes. I look at the website often wishing and dreaming for a pair!
    My Mom bought mine. Lucky me. But for things I really want that are pricey, I stash $30 here and there in an envelope until I have enough. It takes a while but fun when you get there. Kinda appreciate more too.

    I have a few pairs of shoes that I can wear for 4-5 hrs and not be in pain. It's the fact that I wait in line all day then have the concert all night. I should bring a pair of shoes for waiting in line and a pair for the show.
    You wait in a line all day ???

    Children under 5 should get 10-12 hours of sleep.

    Teens and Children five and above should get 10 hours of sleep.

    Hahaha. Between the coaches ideas of morning and evening practices, homework. That would happen how?

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Given your current family situation, check and see if your area has a Lions Club. The overall reason for forming this particular club was to make sure all children had access to eye glasses and hearing assistance. The need has been so much less in the United States that many local Lions have started funding outside the states because nobody seems to take them up on their generosity. My DD was a Leo, which the Lions sponsor. They too did fund raisers etc., to make sure every kid had glasses that needed them.

    Well, it doesn't give them a "cleanse" but it does help make sure they go.

    Did they offer suggestions as to how to make a child go to sleep? Cause DD goes to bed at 830P to 9PM, but sometimes lays in there awake for another hour.

    Our entire family donates their used glasses to the local Lions. Also, many eye Dr's here will trade out office cleaning or yard and parking lot services so teens can have decent glasses and frames.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Some days, I REALLY dislike being a female in my market. It is irritating for men to ask to speak to men, especially when those men have to turn around and ask me.

    I DO, however, LOVE that DH does this in front of them-so they KNOW I have the information. But still, disrespected for being a woman in this day and age. ER>

    Yep! And you want to make the sale so it is a slippery slope.

    In my first career I felt like this too. And to the longshoreman and stevedores they kinda treated me like a pet rock. It was to my survival that I accepted that. I had to climb up and look into the hatches of these ships or go into the container yard to look at the shipping boxes or inspect a warehouse of steel coils weighing a couple thousand pounds. It was best that I was the novel pet rock, cause "accidents" happen in the shipping yards especially on the East Coast.

    Ya can't make a kid fall asleep. I have always been one that can take an hour or more to fall asleep. I think it is because my bio clock makes me a night person. I work the best in late afternoon and even overnight if allowed to sleep in the morning. My son is the same way. DH, DD, just the opposite.

    Lions turn over those eye glasses to Doc's that go overseas and treat children from foreign countries.

    Here they will foot the bill for an exam and eyeglasses. I love our Lions Group that services our area.

    Just wanted to say hi. It's been a bad day. I can't even begin to describe it. Let's just say that in addition to work BS, my husband's car is completely dead (clutch/transmission) and we don't have the roughly $1500 we need to fix it. Oh and it's warranty ran out 3 weeks ago.

    I hope you are all well. Be good - soon I'll be able to breathe!

    Yeah, it is a tightrope. Mostly we just deal, but blatantly ignoring me, or calling and asking for hubby only to find out what time we close the store for the day, that is really just irritating. I just try to let it go.

    Bluck. They are saying the Music Downloads almost immediately skyrocketed in cost as Whitney's death was reported. They learned from Michael Jackson's death that there is money to be made when the famous pass away.
