Crazy Week!

Sorry no picture to update my progress on Dragon Knot. I have finally completed page 2 of 17 of the pattern! Yeah! I hope to have a picture to post sometime next week.

I am off to Ft. Walton Beach, Florida tomorrow morning for a convention. While it is for work, I do have significant down time that I hope to spend on the beach when I am not working or watching baseball. I purchased two new books to enjoy while on the beach and of course I always have my stitching for when I am in my room!

LSU managed to stay alive in the College World Series by beating Rice in the bottom of the 9th inning. While very exciting, kind of wish they would just win a game out right! They play again on Thursday night. If they win, they will play again on Friday night. Guess I won't be going out on the town in Florida! LOL!

What else? I was given a promotion this week. I am now Senior Association Coordinator. Crazy!!!! I was very shocked when told that. I was not expecting that as I have been given the impression over the past few months that the boss was not approving of my current work. I'm the type that doesn't conform and automatically say "yes sir." Tends to get me into trouble at my current job. But he obviously saw something or he had a momentary lapse in judgement. While it is mainly just a promotion in title only, it does get a raise with it. Not sure how much, but with today's gas prices, it'll help!

I was also very lucky in getting a bonus. Which helps offset the fact that for some reason, the company's payroll has not been paid. Today was pay day and surprise!!! No one was paid. Now of course, no one has taken the blame for this, the company or the bank. It was supposed to hit our bank accounts tonight with the correction, but I have to admit, I still have not received mine. I'll check one last time before I head out tomorrow morning.

Well, that is it for now! I hope to have some great pictures of the beach next week!
