I have had one date with a professor at a university in another state and everyone is getting ahead of themselves. A friend told me to marry her, move wherever, and let Mom and my sister fight to the death, or whatever women under the same roof do.

Mom says that she would rather die on her own than move in with her daughter and have my sister make her decisions.

My sister would eventually put my brother in a group home, where they would not take as good care of him as I will.

The professor has been remote-teaching from her parents' house in the Phoenix area and has authorization to continue for several months.

I don't understand why colleges are eager to resume teaching in-person. I absolutely don't see how having professors teach from their offices or even classrooms costs more than in-person, while schools usually charge extra for on-line classes.

I see comments that they need high-speed Internet for all of that streaming, but my classes had 60-450 people all using the Internet at once.

An article from 2014 says: "Online students aren't paying for facilities they aren't using because like at many other public universities, money for buildings comes from government funding, not tuition, he says." Why Online Education May Drive Down the Cost of Your Degree

Well, that is a complicating factor.

I don't know for how long the professor will be able to work remotely and what will happen with her, but I have preferences in both regards.

If I moved to the valley I could continue seeing all of my regular clients except for the one that attacks me constantly.

The SLP may pick her up. The SLP may not keep her and honestly, that may not make a big difference.

There is currently a house under contract a few miles from my sister for $340,000. It is a little bigger than Mom's house, on a decent lot, and looks vastly nicer.

I would need to earn $78,000 a year in order to make that much--triple my current pay.

If I started my own agency, paid my supervisor $150 an hour to supervise me, and maintained 9 clients a week, on top of my existing clients through that agency, I would make $78,000.

Can you imagine how much I wish I knew all of this before I decided to move to Page?

I don't know if I would be able to stay in the valley, but having Mom and my brother closer to our sister would help, and we should have a far easier time finding a provider for my brother.

Especially if I have my own agency and pay better than everyone else. The state pays:

$18.19 for attendant care,
$22.80 for habilitation, and
$17.55 for respite.

My agency pays:
Habilitation Providers - $14.75
Respite Providers - $12.50
Attendant Care Providers - $12.50

So, they make:
$5.05 per hour for respite,
$5.69 for attendant care, and
$8.05 for habilitation.

Or, let's say that I was authorized for 20 hours of attendant care, and 20 hours of habilitation. That would total: $819.80 weekly. Those services are defined as:
Quote:
Habilitation services are for individuals that need assistance with working on outcomes that are described in an Individual Service Plan.

Respite services will provide short-term relief for the primary caregiver. These services can be provided any time of the day or evening that the caregiver requests for. The certified habilitation worker will come and help the individual meet their outcomes in the home or community.

Attendant Care is provided to help an individual with their personal hygiene, assist in dressing, and help with meals. Attendant care can be received in the home or out in the community.

I finally confirmed our regularly-scheduled appointment with the client in the group home for this afternoon and went to follow Boss's instructions for installing apps.

It supposedly takes 7-10 days for them to approve our request, although it would install on its own.

The app only shows 4 apps that they didn't put on my iPad and I don't want any of them. In fact, I don't want the ones they gave me!

It doesn't look like they allow us to reinstall the apps they originally gave us, in which case this child's plaything is useless.

They had given me the app that my brother has used for years. Mom paid $300, so if I decided that I need to buy my own iPad, the device itself would be the cheaper part!

BackMarket says this iPad Air 2 is their best one. It has a flash sale for the next 9 hours. They are charging $209 with 16 GB in very good condition.

Yet here is one with 64 GB for $193, although it is only in "Stallone" condition.
Quote:
Screen: Good condition. No scratches visible when the screen is on.

Body: Fair condition. May have visible signs of use, with scratches and/or dents that can be felt.
Honestly, I don't care about something that kids will use. Nobody is going to think that I cheaped out, just that their kid isn't the first one to use this.

Mom is upset that she cannot use the Chase app on her iPad anymore. Apple stopped updating it and Chase requires a newer iOS than Apple allows, so I could buy this for Mom and use hers, with the $300 app, for therapy.

Meanwhile, I am supposed to see a client in 90 minutes, and I had always used my iPad for flashcards. I found an app for my phone, but I cannot hold it with two hands as easily.

I used to use my box of 156 flashcards, but he always managed to knock it to the floor.

If this client throws my phone I am dropping him!

I am going to look for my $35 RCA tablet. If I can get that to work and my client throws it, I will still drop him, but I wasn't using it anyway.
