Our company decided to do the annual evaluations a month early. So, I got my good news as a Christmas present: a 3.85% increase in my salary!
Was suppose to be 4%, but minor budget cuts didn’t allow my grateful boss to give the full. But who’s complaining?
But Murphy’s Law had to attach itself to the day. I also received the first bill for my Student Loan repayment. LOL!
Have a great weekend!

Hi there-well done on the raise my dear!! have a great weekend!

Hurray for raises. Do you have any plans on what you’ll do with the raise?
congrats on the raise! that’s fantastic.
@ dinah34: thank you. Least I can say I have the money to pay the student loan bill and do not need to scrimp somewhere else! 🙂
@ budget mama: TY! I made the normal Christmas dinner and tried this yummy sweet potato casserole. Really simple and really worth making! Tri tip sounds yummy. Can’t wait to hear how it turned out!
@ sharon rose: TY! Have a great weekend, too. Hope you are feeling better just in time to celebrate Christmas!
@ jpkittie: Thanks! At least I do have the money to pay it, now. And I hope to hear that the other two checks come for you real soon!
@ shtinkykat: TY! I do. One, it does cover my student loan payment. Two, I plan on using the money strictly to pay down debt. I am determined to eliminate that darn debt! 😉
@ Ms. MoneyChat: Thank you! I am quite happy with it. lol! I am liking the new company policy of a month early.
Plus, it also means that in the 5 years I have worked here, I have increased my salary by 2.5 times the original starting salary.
To all: Thank you for the Cheer! And hope you are having a great weekend!
Thanks for posting that link; it looks really good and the best part all ingredients are fine for DS!! Yeah. Thanks again.
Congrats on the 3.85% increase in pay. My company won’t be doing any raises for a while, but I’m just happy to still have a job.
that’s great! a lot of places aren’t getting bonuses or even raises (at least not in the amount they are used to). darn economy.
@ budget mama: you have to tell me how the Xmas dinner turned out!
@ 1 Man’s Money: The downward effects of the economy are terrible. I count my blessings I have my job and its raises.
I wish you the same blessings, as I know you are facing some obstacles.
@ we like money: thanks for visiting. ya, even i got nicked in the raise cuz of budget cuts, but I am not complaining!
