Job Promotion

It may not be too much of a secret that I have been harboring some ill feelings about my job recently. Well, I have some great news! I got a job promotion! From what I hear, this will prove to be the hardest and the best job I will ever have. Here's the scoop:

More responsibility.

Longer hours, consisting of a lot of late night shifts.

No pay increase.

Home improvement projects will be necessary, consisting of some shade of pastel probably adorning our spare room's walls.

My new boss expects me to report for duty sometime around August 3rd.

I am thrilled to announce, after weeks of secrecy and silence (it's SO hard not to shout good news from the mountain tops):

Chad and I are going to be parents!!!

I will admit I read the no pay increase, and I was like are you kidding me, she is taking on more responsibility and no pay and she accepted, and then then I started in on the next line and I was like OH I GET IT, HAHA I am slow sometimes!! CONGRATS, hope you are feeling well!
