Working hard and people are taking notice!
Saturday, September 28, 2013
On a few occasions in the past two weeks my boss has mentioned either in front of me to other co-workers or to the President of the Board of Directors that we are WAY over budget (into the black) from where we anticipated we would be due to all of my hard work with being the new Event Planner for the museum.
I finally got him alone yesterday over lunch...we were quite literally the only people in the building and the phone remained blessedly and so unexpectedly silent, so I was able to ask him for a raise. He said that nothing would be able to happen until January 2014, but I figured as much seeing as how we had to cancel our Fall Fundraiser...but that was also when I took advantage of the opportunity to tell him my fabulous idea for next year's Fall Fundraiser which he LOVED! He had be work up a proposal for it for the board meeting on Monday.
My husband is still out of work which is a perpetual stress for us both. And believe me, if it certainly not for lack of him trying every possible avenue within his field. At least, come January, things seem like they might be looking up. FINGERS CROSSED!!!!!
