Today I am thankful that...
It's a Friday!
It's a PAYDAY Friday, and a much-anticipated one, due to trying to get my August 17 pay to last me 4 weeks, which felt a wretched eternity. So nice to have money again (for a day or two)!
Getting a backdrop image done for my Triune pages. Might wind up overhauling it a few times out of pickiness, but it is nice to have something up!
A nice lunch of pizza with Shelley and Sarin at a nearby bar. That was a good time, especially having Sarin there since we hardly ever talk. She (and Shelley) will go from being 'under Greg' to being 'under me' when the move occurs. So the lunch felt like a nice sort of 'bridge' in a sense.
Thank goodness for payday Friday indeed! I was hoping this would be the first time my direct deposit kicked in, but when it still wasn't deposited by this morning, I had to make a trip to the school and to the bank. Hopefully by next payday it will be in effect. I did not want to go to the bank today, but thankfully there was no line--and on a Friday, that's unheard of!
I'm glad you got the chance to get to know Sarin a bit more before she and Shelley become your underlings ^_^ I'm sure that lunch will make it easier for Sarin, too.
Sorry to hear about the mess-up with direct deposit. I hope that gets sorted out--it certainly is a nice thing to have! That is amazing you were fortunate enough to escape a line on a Friday!
Testing the waters. Not like we haven't worked in the same department together for nine-plus years, but that doesn't mean she'll respect me or my authority. Methinks Greg will be happy to have her off his plate, especially after the last few months.
Hope you feel better soon!
Well, in the past my company used to do two paychecks per month, so that was how I set up my budget. Some years back, they switched to a paycheck every other week, but I kept my budget the same way. So there are two months a year in which there are three paychecks per month instead of two, and that 'extra' paycheck get slated for bigger stuff (plane tickets, vacations, computer upgrades, expensive Bengal kittens--things of that sort). It's very nice to have it set up that way, but it's painful riding over the four weeks between--particularly with buying food, and then all the birthdays in my family this time of year, besides State Fair and Renaissance Festival. =P
I'm just glad I (barely) survived. Will be a month digging out, most likely ;)
