NSD...and I got a nice raise!

January 23rd, 2009 at 04:16 am

My blur of a day today was a no-spender. I have a yucky sore throat and after working 13 hours yesterday (without taking a break)...I woke at 4am (thanks to the sore throat)...and finally decided to go to work at 5:30am to get a head start on the day, since I couldn't sleep anyway(I normally go to work at 8am.) Crazy day and end result was I attended a business meeting for lunch (Subway sandwiches provided)...and worked until 6pm tonight with, again, no break. I am POOPED. (did I mention the sore throat???)

Anyways, I am it all on days that I have to take nana to appointments and dont have to doc my sick leave...etc.

I received a great evaluation and a nice raise today. A surprising 6.5%...I am struggling with such a blessing when so many others are struggling to even find work. Right now, my goal is to pay debt and rebuild our emergency fund. The afford another toy. I am putting my foot down and insisting on pretending like the raise never happened so we can build a financial safety net.

Tomorrow would have been my dads birthday...(happy birthday papa, I miss you!)

    I'm thinking the same thing right now. I've been up since 3:30, DH is out of town, the dogs want to play, maybe I should just get ready and go to work (it's about 5:00 a.m. now).

    Congratulations on the fabulous raise! I am very happy for you!

    I have been having good things happen financially with my jobs as well, and I figure I better "make hay while the sun shines"! There have been plenty of bad financial times for my DH & I so I feel very blessed right now. I am glad you are as well. Smile
