Rain, Rain Go Away

Posted: September 22, 2009 at 12:07 am

It has been raining like crazy here in the Atlanta area for the past week, and today has gotten even worse. There have been multiple cases of flooding, roads and schools being closed, and, sadly, even drownings because of the rain. It would be nice if it passed soon, but it doesn't appear to be so - or at least not for another couple of days. Fortunately the worst the rain has impacted me is it being a total pain to go out in twice for the gym and to the grocery store with Makenzie. I will really be praying for those it is hitting harder though. 

In other news for today, I have been asked to tutor a neighbor's son in Spanish 2x/week starting this Sunday. She asked how much I charged and I don't know! The only students I ever tutored before would have been my own that I couldn't ask money from. I am hoping this will be an easy way to help earn some extra cash for our family. Any ideas on what to ask for payment? It would be nice to get a couple hundred extra a month for our family 🙂 Although it does stink that it will be on my only spare afternoons each week, at least until prep is over. Do what you gotta do though!

    I saw the horrible flooding in the South on the news this morning. I hope that is not anywhere near you. Sending prayers to those ppl!

    Glad you've been spared from the flooding. My stepmom tutored forever ago, and charged $50/hour. That was a long time ago, so I'd say at least that much. Also, I miss the "chatting" part of the old board….just so you know! 🙂 But aren't you impressed I can now post as myself???
