So this year I am going to contribute more! I NEED to. I don't want to have to pay taxes again next year making as little as I do. I contributed another $500 last night. I am 75% of my $1200 goal for the year, but I think I can exceed it.
Today I was also paid $140 for some respite care I've done. However I have driven the kid around a ton and not received any mileage so I am currently emailing the caseworker asking if I am going to be paid some mileage. I've put over 350km on my car with this kid, plus she lives about 25km away so probably closer to 500km. She's a great kid and I'd love to continue to work with her but it's just getting to be too much and after the cost of gas is factored into it, I'd be making under minimum wage!
