So... I just started back at my school right before winter break. I'm THRILLED to be back, even though it means I'm hourly and making much less than before, and it's only for this semester. My P seems really open to me returning to a certified position next year, whether that's a classroom position or just modifying the position I'm currently in from a classified position to certified/salaried. However... I just got my check stub for pay day tomorrow and it's less than I expected. Less than my last one, even. The thing is, my hours aren't shown on the pay stub. I can divide by hourly pay, but it includes days I haven't worked yet (if I go by the pay period at the top) and today was a snow day, so I'm just baffled by it. I did have hours put in over break as "board approved holiday," so I'm assuming that's why my first paycheck was more than expected, but now it feels like a hot mess. I have savings, and I know it'll even out eventually once school gets back in full swing (break just ended so it's weird all around), but watching my bank accounts get smaller and smaller and my budget go negative every month is stressful. Tomorrow's paycheck doesn't even cover the remaining bills I have this month if I use it for rent, let alone groceries, tithe, and savings. I know it'll be fine in a few weeks or a month, I'm just really stressing about it right now. Please pray that it picks up and evens out to what I keep estimating for full time. Thanks.
