Well, after a very long couple of weeks, which left me regularly day dreaming about laying on that beach above... I have some great news to share. My job has changed slightly and I am now part of a new company. We went through an asset purchase and my job is now with the other company. This new job came with a 6% bump in salary and I'm now eligible for a 10% annual bonus. Not sure if anyone actually ever gets paid out on that yet, but still, I'm excited to even be eligible.
Needless to say this bump up will help us meet our financial goals quicker than planned. I still need to find some time to rework the budget and maybe even consider joining their 401K. This new company actually has a match! As Suzie Orman always says, you should contribute at least up to the match. Who am I to turn away free money?
So, things are looking up in our neck of the woods. Sorry I haven't been posting much or commenting on other blogs. It's been crazy busy, to say the least. Hopefully things will calm down over the next week or so and I can get back to my routine.
Here's hoping you all have a wonderful long, relaxing weekend. I know I will :)
