We're so blessed! It just blows my mind! Annual pay raises were announced yesterday and mine was way better than I expected. Lousy economy, budget cuts, and all that. We always celebrate pay raises by going out to dinner, so we decided to try Famous Dave's. My sister emailed me her birthday coupon, and they let me use it, so we got a free appetizer. The food was SOOO yummy and we were both stuffed, with leftovers for today's lunch. Dad, if you're reading this, I had catfish. Mmm, mmm.
Now I just have to decide what to do with the extra money....increase the grocery budget, throw it in savings, or pay off the mortgage faster. I suspect I will do all three! :D
