happy day...

i woke up this morning to this...
that is gus and that is my pillow.
i was sleeping with no pillow.
i guess we know who runs the house.

i woke up thinking,
i'm soooo sleepy....
but
today is going to be a good day.
it's sunny and beautiful outside.
i get to leave work around 2:00.
i'm actually looking forward to the gym after work, for the 4th time this week.
i will have plenty of time tonight to finish my latest spray painting project.
it's market day and i'll be going to get some fresh veggies.
it's pay day!
my 1-2% raise should be applied to my new check!
i know it's not much but it's better than the 0% raise from last year.
and i am very thankful i have a job and one that i enjoy.

turns out, my check was the exact same.
one of the guys i work for has not yet filled out my review.
he was given my review to fill out 6 weeks ago.
this is the same guy that said i couldn't have off on my birthday next week even though i have 5 weeks of paid time off to use up by the end of the year.
geeeee....um, thanks.
kinda nice that he will be away today and tomorrow ;)
*i don't want to make my boss seem like a horrible guy because he's really not, at all.  would be nice if he kept me a bit higher on his priority list that's all.*

one other thing i have to share with you ladies...
i went to target yesterday and spent under $10!!
when you are on a very tight budget you do what you gotta do :)
even if it means eating $1.25 pizzas for din.
they were very tasty by the way!

i'll be making the best of this lovely day!! :)
i hope you all have a great day as well!
tomorrow is friday!! woo hoo...

Ahh, doesn't it just look GORGEOUS outside?? I just told Greg's admin that it looks soo nice and that we should have an outside office day ;-)

I'm off at 2pm today too!! Let's go morning, chop chop, hurry it up!! Have a fantastic afternoon off. I want to get some fresh fruit at a farmers market this weekend too, hopefully I get some good finds :-)

Bummer about the jerk you work with, that sucks. Have a great day, Annie!

THE Stephanie said...

That pic cracks me up! Hey, at least he's comfy, right? LOL.

And BOO for the guy who's slacking on your review! 1-2% is better than nothing (like we're getting this year), just like you said!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Wow, what a jerk.

Have a great afternoon off!

$10 at Target how is that possible? j/k That's great! Your doggie is precious... my dog does that sometimes! Too cute.

Brittany said...

Snuggles always ends up on my pillow too :) It's okay though lol.

Lucky you getting off at 2 today! But it sucks that you work with a mean guy who won't give you time off for your bday or hasn't filled out the papers for your raise!

I hope you enjoy your afternoon :)

Kristen said...

wow under $10! I didn't know that was possible! We go to Target or Walmart and if we spend under $70 it's cause for celebration (and we're on a tight budget too!)! Guess having 2 kids helps make our bill larger.... but still! Glad the guy from work isn't gonna be there the next couple of days, boo to him for not letting you off for your birthday!

carrie1 said...

I don't think I can ever walk out of Target under $100... take yesterday... $104 was my total!

Boo.. to the big man who hasnt submitted your stuff for your raise..

and Yay.. to bright sunny days.

Happy Thursday!

Tamara Nicole said...

My dogs do that too!!! They sleep at the foot of our bed in their OWN beds, but somehow end up sneaking in with us and taking up the whole bed. Little rascals! Lol hope your day goes well, cognrats on the raise!!!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Hopefully your raise will come through soon!

A Real Housewife said...

one of our dogs, maverick, insists on sleeping on my husbands pillow every night! my sweet husband won't move him so he gets about a corner of the pillow every night.

Lauren Kelly said...

Have a wonderful day my sweet friend!!!! :)

♥ H ♥ said...

Harley sleeps the SAME way! I'm like, look here little girl, I AM MOM. YOU ARE CHILD. She gives me a blank stare like "Does it look like I care??" But then when shes sleeping so peacefully, I can't move her. So I suffer. Things we moms do :) lol

Marian said...

Pay day here as well!! Gotta love it (except most of it goes to bills...tear).

And I wish I could be heading to the market for fresh veggies...nom nom nom, my favorite

Jenn @ WestSacHoney said...

Ah I had the same thing happen with a raise awhile back it took FOREVER to get the raise. Hopefully he gets his butt in gear. My dog totally steals my pillow and I sleep with nothing too! What we do for our little fur babies!

I don't think I ever said hi! But hi! I'm a new follower!

Good job at only spending $10 at Target that's like impossible for me.

Rasha said...

Bahaha you cant get mad at that!

Lana said...

I wish I could go to Target and only spend $12! I always spend way too much there!

The Pittman's said...

My dogs do the same thing...all over my pillows..everyday. Enjoy your day!

Mrs. Potts said...

Sweet Gussy! Maddy Girl used to hog the bed - I'd end up curled up in the fetal position while she stretched herself out!

Boo on people who don't get done what they are supposed to.

Shelby Bukhenik said...

woohoo to a raise but boohoo to a lazy boss!

What a positive outlook you have today, always makes my days better to be happy and in a good mood! Have fun getting all your stuff done!

Southern Champagne Wishes said...

Gus is so cute stealing your pillow! Yay for pay day, although that guy really needs to get on the ball and get your raise processed!

Annie said...

pretty impressed that you made it out of tar-jay for $10!!! thast gotta be a first!

love your positive attitude :)

Perfectly Imperfect said...

you better tell that boy to get on your review! i would punch him if he was messing around with my money!!

and 9 times out of 10, I wake up in the morning and the cat has stolen my pillow. makes me crazy!

Katy Mary said...

Aww what a cute pup! Glad you had nice weather, a short work day and a paycheck!

Becca said...

LOVE that picture!!! What a spoiled little doggy!

Hope your day is going well. Totally stinks that you didn't get your raise on this paycheck! He needs to get on the balL!

Ams said...

I was shocked because yesterday I went to the grocery store and I too spent $20 when I went in to spend $40. I was quite proud of my finds!! lol
The things we get excited about right?
And I would be a little annoyed too that your raise wasn't on the check... grrrrr...

Mrs. Pick said...

$10 at Target! I need to know your secret! I was in there today and managed to spend over $100!

Cassie said...

I hope your boss gets it together and gives you your raise! And I'm sure he's not a horrible guy, but not letting you take time off when you have it really sucks :(

I'm impressed with your Target budget! I'm lucky if I can get out of there spending less than $50.

Lil' Woman said...

Target is very hard to walk through with a budget! :)

Anonymous said...

aww! so sweet!

Sofia said...

Wow! You really have a nice day to look forward too besides your loving husband, your gussy and your little boy, today's also your payday! And it is indeed that everyone loves payday for in they got to shop and buy the things that they want to. But for some people who cannot manage to splurge money on shopping, they can really ask for their company's payday loan (Utah) service desk to be able to go on and buy stuff for you and your family.
