Random Happiness!!!!!!!!!!

I only have two more work days until I leave for my two week vacation! I am so excited! I feel like a little kid, all excited for a trip to Disneyland or Lagoon (Utah reference). It has been about two years since I last saw my parents. I am very excited to spend Christmas with them in the desert!

And today is my 6th wedding anniversary! It is pretty cool to think that my hubby and I have been married for 6 years! As evidence of how geeky we both are, whenever someone asks about our anniversary, we both tell that person that we were married on the 100th anniversary of flight, haha. For some reason we find that little fact very cool!

Alright, back to cranking out client reports!

More Random Updates

I received my bonus check today, well, at least half of it. That is right, the government took half of it. Ugh, I might as well start viewing my annual bonus opportunity differently. Specifically, I need to view it has "target divided by a little over half." Good to know someone else (the government and the spend happy politicians) are enjoying my hard work. Enough griping..

On a positive note, I have decided that I am going to start my trek back west for the holidays a little earlier than planned. The hubby, Lobo and I will start our drive on Saturday, the 19th versus leaving on the 22nd. I know it is a long drive, but I seriously am so excited to go somewhere warm for a few days. The crazy drive will be worth it. Plus, driving allows us to bring the dog on our little vacation. I really did not want to leave her in boarding for two weeks.

Alright, back to cranking out client reports..Have a nice weekend everyone!

Updates

Well, I am still as busy as ever. However, I learned earlier in the week that I am getting promoted and will be getting a big salary increase and a bigger bonus opportunity. Apparently, all this hard work is getting me somewhere!

I cannot wait for my Christmas vacation. I am taking two weeks off. I am not bringing my work laptop and am refusing to do any work on my vacation. Here's to hoping that I get away with this..

Hindsight

If someone would have told me a few years back that I would end up taking out thousands of dollars in debt so that I could work 15 hours a day non-stop, I would have said that did not sound very smart..Hmmm.
