Some good news!

First of all, thank you all for your kind words in response to yesterday’s post. I never even thought to call the doctor, but that was the first thing I did this morning. She gave me enough samples to get through until next week (and a few extra!). So, praise the Lord, I won’t be unbearable for the next week, nor will I need to go into hiding.

Secondly, Gene came home with some awesome news. He got a promotion at work! As of Sunday night, he will be the new Grocery Manager. There’s not an increase in pay (I don’t think!), but he’s advancing faster than anyone ever has at this store. We were hoping he would have the chance to become grocery manager this fall, but God has allowed it to happen even faster! So exciting!

Things are definitely looking up around here. It’s been a really good day, and I’m back to my smiling self. My kids (and my husband) are all very happy about that.

    No increase in pay!!! There should be!!! You should clarify that. Nonetheless, congratulations!! This, plus your free samples, plus any tax refund you get- things are looking up for you. Stay positive!

    Yay! I’m so happy for you. You don’t hear many good stories in terms of employers now a days.

    Go Gene!

    YAY for Gene! But I agree, a promotion should mean a pay raise! You know, I read something just a little while back that said something about another rebate for families that took a cut in pay or had a baby last year, and you guys had both! I didn’t read up on it so I don’t know what it’s all about, but check into it if you haven’t.

    I’m so glad your doc got you some meds. I sure hope you find that bottle! BIG (((HUGS))) girl! You’ve had so much going on. (For a change, right?)

    Love ya!
