Doing the happy dance right now. I got home from work and logged into my work email (I always work a bit when I get home at 4pm-ish, so I get my 8 hours in for the day). My boss had sent an email telling me she forgot to tell me today that she put my raise in...........$3766 more per year!! Woooo! I'll take it and am pleased with a 6% raise.
Now if DS can just find a job, I'll have even more money per month. He should know more this week about the computer repair technician job. The company owner has been telling him he wants to hire him and wants it to be sooner rather than later.
