For what was a short work week - it felt exceptionally long.

So, I just got out of my review with my supervisor. I wrote it back in October, but he's been really busy - and so we went over it today. I have to say - he gave me a glowing review. Now, I know I gave him all the input of what I've done, but he really wrote some glowing things about me. It was a fantastic review, which felt great. If only the money reflected it.....

It's a joke - barely cost of living. However, my company is not very generous financially overall, so I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised. The money is retroactive from October, and truly the extra "nothing" (aka it's going to equal practically nothing!) I'm going to get isn't going to change my overall salary much. But the feedback was great. And that's what's most important. That's what you can bring to the table when looking for progression whether within an organization - or outside of it.

Tonight is our gathering of the girls - I'm really looking forward to it. It's only a few streets over from me tonight, which is nice. I'm probably going to go over in pajamas! hahaha. And an early night it's going to be. The kids and I have a breakfast date at the Waffle House tomorrow a.m.

I've never been to one here in MA, and I'm looking forward to checking it out. Actually - it was a recommendation from
Miss SFNE!

So this girl - is going to leave a little early and maybe do a little celebratory boot and shopping!
Wish me luck - last time I tried that venture, I didn't make it. ;)

POSTSCRIPT, 1:45 pm : Here's the reason why you never should say negative things about anyone. They always come back to bite you in the ass. After I wrote this and posted it, I got called out into our building atrium. My company is located out of state - and it seems the VP is in town for a meeting. He came and presented me with an "Employee of the Quarter" award - that was supposed to be presented to me in December, but I didn't attend our holiday party as it was midweek. And along with the award, I got a $100 AMEX gift certificate. Very nice!!!!

How's about a free pair of boots?
You gotta love that! ;)

Good luck with the boots! I'm still continuing my quest as well for that perfect pair.

Nathan and I have a breakfast date with another single Mom I found through Craigslist. I need to make some friends and get a life, so hopefully I'm on the right track!
