Project Complete - Happy Weekend!

I'm so glad it's the weekend! The annoying fact that I need to go down to the basement and do some painting is almost completely negated by the fact that it's Saturday! yay :)

I've been wanting to post but for most of the week I didn't have the chance. I have lots of running updates to post - I'm still going with it and am on week 4. But, more details on that in other posts.

My crazy project at work finished yesterday finally and it was all on time. I can't believe it. The department I was working with did a great job and pushed to get it all done. I'm going to make cookies tomorrow and buy a bunch of drinks to bring in on Monday for them to thank them. I'm honestly astounded that it got done by the due date.

On Wednesday I had my review with my old supervisor and my new one. I got a promotion to the "senior" level of my position. I'm happy - I basically do the senior work already. Now I'll have the title to go with it. Unfortunately this promotion doesn't come with a raise. The company I work for (a larger one that probably anyone who lives in the US would recognize the name of) has put a hold on raises until further notice. No one at all is getting them this year probably. Hopefully I'll get a raise to go with my title change either later this year or at this time next year. I'm not worried about it but more money is always a good thing ;)

That's all for now. I should really get painting. Running progress updates will be next!


  1. Rock on! Even a non-paid promotion is better than a lay off!

  2. Heya! Didn't know you had a blog. Now I am going to become a blog stalker of yours!

  3. Thanks for the congrats :)
