I don't post here often but I read everyday (more than once! ) and i just have to share my good $ news! I'm sorry it is so long. Here goes... We have been planning a trip for months - we leave in 3 weeks. We planned a pretty tight budget. I knew we would still have a great time but we were not going to buy the extras - character meals, do alot of shopping. Also, with Christmas close and 4 kids we knew we had to watch where all of our $ was going. Over the weekend I realized that Dh signed up for a flex account at work last nov. and I really didn't look into it much. The other day I thought about it and realized that we have $1200 in there to spend by the end of the year or lose it! So I gathered up all of my med receipts and so far they total $500. We didn't even realize that we had that $ coming! I'm sure I could gather up more if I went to the ped and got copies of all of my receipts but we all have eye appts this month so we will def. get our $. Then, we have been trying to sell our camper for a while and someone finally wants to make a decent offer - $1200! THEN, I teach part time and I'm currently transferring from a reading specialist position to a parent litercy coach/three year old teacher. Right now I'm trying to do both jobs while they find a reading specialist to replace me. I have been putting in many long hours working from home to write the 3 year old curriculum and attending our PA's PreK Grant meetings. I've been in the district 7 years and have never been reimbursed for extra time. I found out yesterday that I will be getting a check for $2500 next week plus my usual pay! I can't believe it We never have this kind of luck. And it is such great timing! Christmas and our Disney trip! I just had to share my excitement!!!!!! Disney here we come!!!!! With an extra $4200!
