Raise & a Bonus - simple celebration time!!

Monday, December 17, 2012

Happy... almost Tuesday!

I was promoted to a better position within my company a few weeks ago. Although the training did not start yet, I had my review today. I started my job with this company last February. The review went great. I was given a $2 raise & a Christmas bonus. Woohoo! With my last job, I worked there for two and a half years and never got a raise. I did so much for that company, and everyone hated each other there. I am so thankful for the company I work for now. I never imagined I would be this happy at a job. Even though I never imagined working for an accounting firm, I love it!

When I first got to work this morning, my co-workers & boss all said to me: "Did you have fun at the Christmas party? It looked like you had fun!" hahaha. I know I felt silly dancing and laughing so much- but Oh well! Everyone had a good time so it was definitely worth.

After work, I used a free Redbox movie code & walked around the food store looking for something to reward myself with. It sounds silly, but I wanted to celebrate with my parents. I knew they were already cooking dinner, so I didn't want to pick up any real food. I walked around for about 20 minutes before I decided what I wanted - angel food cake & berries! Oh and I couldn't forget the fat free cool whip =) My Mom apparently never had raspberries or blackberries before? My parents thanked me for the dessert & the movie.

I finished my Christmas cards finally & had my dessert. Yum yum! Normally I try not to have an actual dessert - I prefer some kind of snack instead of a baked good - but it definitely was a nice treat. The new training will probably start in January once my position gets filled! I am still nervous & excited! Even though I will be working tons of hours soon... at least I will be paid more & I know I am appreciated at my work!

I still need to figure out what kind of workout schedule I will have. It will be so easy to just forget about the exercise =( Hopefully that does not happen. I wish I had a workout partner closer to home to push me to workout!
