I am very excited about Obama as the new President and wondering what’s your biggest wishes from his endless list. This presidential election is historical and very exciting. But, on the other hand,  I am also worried about white supremacy folks; anyone out there thinking the same? I really think we could have one of the gratest four years ahead of us or we could have a great tragedy about to happen if folks from the south decide to take him down for good.

I am not too sure about the meaning of what electoral votes, but from the Yahoo Political Map it looks like most of the south east voted for McCain.

Oh boy, last week was bumpy; actually the last few months have been bumpy for all of us. For me, signs of the bad economy are 30% loss on my 401(k), about 20% loss on my IRA Roth, my house lost equity and it’s about $20K less than what I paid for a few years ago, gas prices up and now, one good thing, going down now. Does anyone really think a the new president will fix this bad economy? I hope so, it’s like hurricane preparation, hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

Well, for some people at my job, the signs of bad economy were right up on their faces; about 7 people got fired at my job last week; I couldn’t believe it. But, besides the bad economy, of courses, performance also counts. Even a couple veteran employees were let go. I was thinking, am I next? I think my position is safe, but you just never know. I know my work is done in my department; even when some big wig called me to alert me about little talk between me and my co-worker, but  what’s weird is that this boss did not realize that we don’t take smoke breaks and others in her dept. do, at least 2-3 times a day, they take a 15 minute smoke break and my 5 min talk to break the day is bad… I guess I should start smoking and that would be ok. Well, we just keep on trucking.

So, to get the bad economy blues away, my hubby and I decided to go out for a dinner Saturday night and take a walk after, just do window shopping and enjoy the nice weather. And, I was also hoping to get home and see Sara Palin on SNL in a funny skit with with Tina Fay. But now, Palin did some small talk with Alec Baldwin and did a lame intro to SNL; and that was it. Very disappointed with Palin, oops, that seems to be the pattern LOL – But, I guess, I migh have missed some more of Palin on SNL, check out the video at http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2008/10/palin_raises_the_roof_on_snl.asp

Did you know that stay-at-home moms are worth about $117 k / year??? oh my gosh! I was surprised when I read this little article on the newspaper about how much work stay-at-home moms do; and not to mention the moms that also have full time jobs. I ask myself HOW DO THEY DO IT???

Boston associate press says that stay-at-home moms could be compensated as much as $117,000 / year.  That’s according to Mother’s Day study released by Salary.com , a company that studies workplace compensation. The base pay level was calculated by studying pay levels for 10 job titles with duties that are similar to what moms perform at home. Check this out, moms do all of these, from housekeeping and day-care to center teachers to van drivers, psychologist and chief executive officer. WOW!!! That’s a hand full of jobs. Well, all of these jobs combined come up to about $117 K salary. Also, about 18,000 moms surveyed about their typical week reported working about 94 hours; that means more than half of their working hours on overtime.

So, for Mother’s Day give your mom a break and send her to a SPA – she deserves it! Or, at least give her some flowers.
