Moolah, moolah!

     Happy to have sold (and shipped) two of the three things I put up on the Windstone Forum Sunday (particularly the one I didn't think would ever sell for what I wanted for it). Nice to get a bit of extra 'pocket change'!

     But that doesn't compare to the shocking surprise I got at work today! I'd been expecting whatever pay raise I got for this year to be very low, if not non-existent, and bracing myself for a year with rising costs and no raise. So today our new boss handed out the sheets...and I got 4.1%! Hurrah, thank God, what an unexpected blessing!!! =D

Emotional Status:
hot sick of roasting

Thanks! It was quite a shock, though at least I got 60 seconds warning with Shelley rushing over in amazement to show me HER raise. I'm very happy for 'my people' too, since they were expecting a bad year as well. We're celebrating with lunch out today.

Thanks! Only one left, which was the cheap one, and if it doesn't sell in June I'll just try again another year.

Is this financial good news going to be celebrated in the suitable way that your icon suggests?

Glad to hear it, by the way. It always makes things a little bit easier.

I already ordered a piece of jewelry I've been drooling over. =) But some of it's for practical stuff, like buying an air mattress to see if that will keep me cooler this summer.

Yes, it sure does! =D
