A Quick Post - I Got My Raise :)

I knew I had a raise coming from work, but I tend to not count my chickens before they hatch. I have received official word that I will be receiving a 7% increase in pay starting this month, so I'm excited.

The best part of my current job is that I'm pretty sure they like me and I enjoy working for them. I can see myself working my way up in the company, expecially if I increase my education (which I have been doing). It has taken a while to get here in regards to my career, with some really odd jobs, but I think it has been worth it.

How exciting! I am so happy for you. 7% for a raise is hardly ever heard of around my place without a major change that is.

See, everything is going to work out fine. You will need to chase down that ice cream man 1 more time this summer, just for your little one.

Thanks everyone! I'm pretty excited about it. It's the result of some extra education that I pursued. Now, if I do another course, I will get another 7%.

D - that's funny you mentioned that. While I was working yesterday I heard the music again and I could hear my son saying, "Ice Cream...Ice Cream..." It was cute.
