    It's complicated.

    First, when Alan Grayson talked about what Mal-Wart managers make, I thought, "Well, that's about my take home, so. . . ." Second, the reason I am among the voles and bolls is that I was elected to be the care taker for my mother.

    Time is not a fiction; it is a narrative.

    •  Oh my. (6+ / 0-)

      That does make things difficult indeed. I used to be an adjunct and figured that my take home per hours worked was about the same as the cashiers at 7-11. People here in the UK make a bit more (if I had a job here, I'd brag about it) and travel is not as expensive out of England. My apologies.
      As for being a caregiver, it has got to be one of the most strenuous jobs around both physically and mentally. I was an only child so there was no question, but my parents died when I still had some energy to deal with it. My condolences, and if you are  around during the holidays, check in here. There aren't any festivities planned here and I'd be glad to hear from you. Your writing is excellent.
