The Honey On Your Biscuit Is Your Dessert!

That's something my mom used to say when we asked what was for dessert. Always disappointing. That quote came to mind when we got an email from the big boss that started off "Due to the slow economy..." and ended with "there will be no raises for now". We all expected it really, we just hoped it wouldn't actually happen. I thought they should have sent out a short letter that said,"you got you 10% back, what more do you want?". Kind of like giving us our money back was our dessert.

The next thing to look forward to is profit sharing. Those results don't come in until January. This is the first full year that I am eligible. Any money goes in to my 401k so I can't touch it anyway but free money is always nice. Not that I am hoping for much.

I can't believe it is the end of August already. This year is speeding by. They say the economy will pick up in 2010 and it is just around the corner.

"They" say the economy will pick up in 2010, but hey, December 2010 is still 2010. Don't get too excited ;)

I like biscuits and honey! I don't like not getting a raise.

Too bad the profit sharing would have to go to 401k. We had an option of sending it there at my last job, but I don't anyone who took it. Better than nothing if it happens though.

Big Sis, no fair, I want Jan. 2010! The govenment promised me!

Over the Cubicle, I know, I lost my enthusiasm for profit sharing when I found out it had to go there. I wanted a bonus!
