Crappy day already...vent ahead

1. Woke up this morning to a sick, coughing baby :(

2. I bought a dress for our black tie event this Saturday...it needed a few alterations so my mom was going to do them.  The dress was poorly made to begin with so the seams were unable to be let out...she tried anyway but now the dress is unwearable and I have 2 days to find a new dress that actually fits.  (I guess this one is my fault for buying a checp dress but it still sucks!)

3.  Got my paycheck this morning...was expecting to get paid for half a month, however, HR says that my daily rate is being docked for the 14 days I didn't work this month, which amounts to just about the same as what my monthly gross is...even though I'm working 9 days this month.  So basically I don't get paid for those 9 days and my check this month is nothing when you factor in benefits and other deductions.  Yeah...wasn't expecting that!

Ugh...I need a do over this morning!

    Oh that sucks!  That daily rate KILLS you!  At least you'll get some summer checks, right?  Those were normal for me.  I wish they'd spread out those days they dock your daily rate.  It also made me mad because they were paying a sub 1/5th of what they were docking me!
  • Boo.

    But that sick, coughing baby is pretty darn adorable. Just had to throw that in there.

  • I have an amazing dress you can borrow if you'd like. I'm not sure if it would fit. I think it's a ten. I wore it on a cruz and it has a very small train that has one bustle to put it up. It's black. I'm down in Gilroy, are you located nearby?

    Yeah...I was totally expecting to have at least a half of a check this month...grr!  I do get a summer check, but unfortunately our July check is the first one for next school year.  So, if I'm not hired back before July (I'm pink slipped right now) that means no check in July.

    You are so sweet...thank you!  I'm in Elk Grove so not super close, and I think I might have a bit more baby weight left before I'll fit in a 10. :-( DH told me to go see if I can find something for a reasonable price. I'll keep you guys posted.

  • Boo! That sounds awful. I'm sorry you're having a bad day and hopefully tomorrow is better.
  • God, I hate days like that where everything hits you like a ton of bricks. I'm really sorry about your pink slip stress and docked pay (so ridiculous). I've had some real headaches with EDD and gotten docked pay. It makes me so mad. I hope you can find a dress quickly. That's really frustrating! Hope your LG feels better!!
  • :( *hugs*

    On the upside, your baby is freakin adorable!! I love those pics!
