Friday Goodness

Remember that promotion I talked about a while back? I got it. And mere minutes ago, I got offered a head honcho-type job by a client. When it rains, it pours people.

I can't begin to tell you how flattering that offer was. But I'm staying put. As much as I bitch sometimes, doing what I'm doing makes me happy. Strange but true.

This, my friends, is a good Friday. Do the Friday dance...double-time!

Congrats dead-bolt protector! Have a GREAT weekend and take some time to celebrate the good things going on in the FISH-CACTUS-BEAN Household!

So while Thursday Super Sucked, Friday's become like Ultra End o' the Week! Good for you. You deserve it. The impending Daddydom is stressful enough.

that is awesome. congrats! now send some of your good job karma over my way. i need it.

Wait. Do the Friday dance...double time?

I'm scared.

Good on ya. And good call on staying put - I'm sure you know that new job + new kid = bouts of curling up into fetal position under new desk and sobbing uncontrollably. Take it from one who knows.

Posted by: Jason at July 15, 2005 01:18 PM

That is great news, for a Friday or really any day of the week. Woo!

Woo hoo!

Posted by: Carla at July 15, 2005 01:35 PM


and yeah, recognition of your skills is always a good thing. make sure to file that away for the low moments. ♥

hmm. by the downpour that just started, i'd say some people confused the happy way to go chris dance with the rain dance. ah well. it's all good. rain makes the trees grow.

Yay. Hey does the promotion mean more cash? If it does that means more cool stuff for the bean!

That's fabulous --- things happen in threes, so one more good thing to come

Posted by: Kathryn at July 15, 2005 02:42 PM

You? are so awesome! And you know the cool part? You're not all stuck on yourself and stuff! THAT? is cool. (Did I reall say cool? How old am I?)

Lucky Beth and Bean!

*bows down* We're not worthy! We're not worthy!

Woot! That? Rocks! You are such a stud! If supersucky days are followed by superawesome days, then I am due for about 15 years worth of superawesome days by now! hahaha. See how I made that about me? I'm clever like that!

Anyway, muy congratulations! It really couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Yay for you!!!! Congrats, couldn't happen to a nicer guy...no, I'm not going to break out into "For he's a jolly good fellow..." unless you like that sort of thing! And of course you are staying where you are...I'm sure it would be hard to get another group of "bitches" trained to your liking :) aahahahahahaha!
