Unexpected Monies - Current and Future (cont)

The company holiday party was off da chain! And your girl Dimples came out on top. I walked away with a $500 cash bonus and a $250 gift certificate to a bed and breakfast in St Augustine. As I said in my post, I was going to attempt to get an iPod for my brother for Xmas. Unfortunately, they only had a grey 4G iPod nano and my brother would not have liked it. So the search continues.

I am real psyched about my bed and breakfast prize. I haven't had a vacation since I became a mom 5 years ago. I really need to take one before I wear myself out and straight lose it. My birthday is January 3 and I am trying to think on how I want to play the festivities out. I have two other friends whose birthdays are Dec 25 and Dec 29. We have been talking about combining our birthday festivities into one big thing, either it be a cruise or trip somewhere or just maybe a big party. We are trying to do that the weekend before New Years so I may cash in on the bed and breakfast getaway the following weekend. I'll keep yall posted.

As for the bonus; well that is going straight to the bank so that I can pay down this credit card debt.

We usually get another bigger bonus this time of year. I got mine last year right before we went on vacation. I have been hearing some things through the grapevine about them making bonuses once a year around our yearly assessments rather than twice a year. Again this is just gossip of which I am hoping turns out to be hog wash.

I will be posting my 2008 Career Plan and 2008 Goals soon. So stay tuned.
