Happy Day!

December 10th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

I got word today that my salary is going up about $1000 a month. Yahoo! I was thinking this might happen and hoping it would work out. Smile Great news!

Inexpensive dinner:

And so incredibly delicious. It's not terribly nutritious, so we topped it with some of the toppings listed plus some steamed broccoli. And we had lots of oranges on the side. It was warm and yummy.

Today was a completely wonderful day at work, even without the news above. Just very pleasant and productive. And then I spent the afternoon with a friend. I spent $3.80 on a latte, and it was worth every penny.

At work, there's a little Secret Santa thing going on. I made some decorated sugar cookies yesterday to take for my treat. My Secret Santa left a Starbuck's card in my mailbox! So I can get a few more lattes... I like to do creative things for activities like this, and I'm still trying to think of ideas.

Nine more days of work before I get some days off for the holidays. I am very happy with my new-ish job, but I am ready for some rest, too.

Have a great week!

    Good news!

    I'm thrilled. It's a significant raise. But I was horribly underpaid to start with, so... I feel like I'm just starting to get what I should.

    Plans for it... yes. Save. Probably half will go in retirement accounts. The other half will be used for travel, at least for the first 6 months of next year. We have some long distance major life events that we'll be traveling for this spring, so it will be nice.

    That is a nice sized raise, definitely, and it will lead to some more flexibility for you financially every month. What a nice boost. Glad you have some insurance of time off for the holidays... enjoy!
