I had a very depressing conversation with my wife this morning. As if our financial situation isn't bad enough with my engineering business, apparently she is going to loose her meager instructional assistant position due to a minor infraction. She was frustrated with one of her students because the student was being disrespectful and talking durring the pledge of allegiance. She repremanded the student in front of the classroom and in the process she grabbed the student's arm. Apparently, the student filed a complaint and the school, obviously trying to prevent a legal frenzy, decided to fire my wife for her actions. Our health insurance was provided through her job and now I will need to carry that expense, too! Some times I feel like giving up, letting the bank take everything, and living on welfare like the illegal immigrants do!
