small lowercase squee

My job is...well...a job. We have two children in college so having a job is good, right? And remember I was out of the work force from 1988 to 2005 so I basically started over at age 42.

I would love nothing more than to go into the shenanigans of my crazy ass boss; but I've heard that people have lost jobs over that shit so I will say just this: It is very, very, very difficult for me to work for a person I don't have a lot of respect for.

Yesterday the personnel committee met. They gave me a 10% raise. I guess I'll see if that makes it any easier.

Bet it does - it's funny how money cushions least for a while.

Yay for you!!

Yeah, I'm with Violet. Money makes things better, even if only for a little while. Congrats.

A raise! Congratulations! I'm with Violet--some money can make some things better.

I'm trying to get back into the workforce after 7 yrs off ~ at 53! Not much happening there... but a little money goes a long way.
