early Christmas present...

This week my friend and I were told that
we will be moved to full-time as of January 4.
Plus, my 90-day probation is up this coming
Tuesday so, I'll be getting a raise.

Two excellent reasons for celebrating, eh?

She and I won't get paid for the business holiday shut-down
for the last two weeks of December and the first three days
of January but, we knew that from the start so budgeting
was necessary. I'll make it.

The crawl back up the hill is much slower than the slide down.
Still, this is good news and I am grateful.

Congratulations! Oh that dratted slippery slope is appropriately named. Still, after a bit of muck I think I see steps upward in your future.
