Big day for me and the Mrs.

August 8th, 2008 at 10:20 am

I got a raise and promotion! I had proposed this to my bosses six months ago and after long, long, long deliberations (did I say long?!!) they have decided to bump my pay 20 percent and have me report directly to the CFO (I'm in IT.) This is a huge positive step for me one day before we are going out of town so I feel great about it. Look out debt reduction tracker!

The Mrs. also has a meeting today with her CEO about a raise so hopefully we both end up bumping up the income ladder. This will make getting out of debt even more fun!

Thanks to all who read my diatribe and post comments. It's really keeping me going in the right direction.

    Thank you all! We are so happy! The wife will be having a follow up meeting when we get back but it sounds like she's going to get something. It was so fulfilling hearing the CFO state "Your salary increase will take effect immediately." I hope I never get that out of my head. Smile Thanks again all and Aloha!
