I got it! Boss came back with the extra $1600 per year still believing that he was generous in the first offer. Oh and I get another 6 month review which I wasn't expecting. So that is pretty good huhn? Kinda makes me wish I had asked for more, but why push it???
I will be happy for this next 6 months with this and pray and pray that I get more with a promotion the next time. Of course I will continue to work like I do now and even strive for to do more.
Oh and can I just say what a pain in my arse this bringing payroll in house is???? The company working on our 401(k) stuff messed up the match amount but didn't tell me until today. Which means I am going to have to do manual calculations to fix it since the money is being transferred as we speak, OY!
I will be celebrating at lunch by making a trip to B&N for a book I ordered based on a recommendation from harlowe's monkey. (too lazy to link)! Oh yeah! spending as we speak!
