School is tough and I am old.

I am feeling old since one of my instructor said he was born in 72...what?  Why the heck and I doing this?  I have asked myself that question a few too many times this semester.  I am not in love with my classes and I am subbing in different building and that makes having a routine hard.  I like having a routine.  

But it is too late I have student loans and if I quit I have no way to pay them back without a better paying job and I love teaching especially sped so I guess I will keep going...anyway what would I do with all this extra time I have discovered?

How do you pay for yearbooks?

Well this year again I have 2 yearbooks to buy and next year and the next year and then 3 yearbooks and then back to 2 again and last back to only 1 and only 1 at the end.  Well that is lots of yearbooks and those sucker are about 70 dollars---on the early buy that is.  So how to pay for all of those yearbooks or at least this years 2 books.  Well a few weeks back I saw a basket of these razor blades at Hyvee and each package was 10 cents.  OK that sounds like the right price for the boys and their hairy faces, so I bought a few packages and then thought about it and sent Qatar back for the rest.

Qatar came back with 183 packages(4 bags full) and I started listing them on ebay.  To date I have made over $150 in profit on these blades and I still have 2 full bags left...I am not sure how many.  I sell them in many combinations, but the most popular is the 4 pack for $9.99 plus $2.99 shipping.  Sold 2 groups just today.  YEAH!!!!
