Goodness!

Well, what do you know? I got big, ole raise yesterday. It wasn't time for a review or after a year or anything - it was a "just because you're doing a great job" raise!

Nice, isn't it?

And, even nicer... I got my best friend, Kaye, hired. She starts a week from today.

Yesterday, I received my order from our favorite potter, Gary. A beautiful heart-shaped mug (that's for ME) and a lovely heart-shaped candle holder that I have given to my coworker and friend, Wendy (she loved it), and Gary included a really amazing "mystery gift." I can't tell you what it is because I don't want other Gary afficionados to be jealous. It's possible they could come after my collection and things could get ugly.

The Colonel? No calls yet... he's been here over an hour. He has that "staring at the computer screen" down pat, though.

I don't think he got a raise.

I am thinking 'big cheese comes over from CA, takes you to lunch, takes you to dinner, loves LOVES you and some of your co-workers, and wants to make sure you know you're appreciated'
I appreciate you too, therefore the groovy mystery gift :) It is a secret, but I always toss in a free gifty. I feel like this stranger is giving me money and trusting me, lets GO OUT OF OUR WAY to make them happy. I am big on customer service and their happiness.
But I sure have filled up your house a bit.....

I am thinking you are "In the Gravy." I am so happy for you about your raise. It is good to hear some good news about economy. I have had several blogging friends lose their jobs or their husbands lose theirs. I am proud for you that you do such a good job that your boss gives you accolades when it isn't even time to do so. Sounds like your company is flourishing with the raises and the new hires, but the "poop" may hit the fan, if the Colonel doesn't straighten up and start flying right.
