{Good news for us!!}

Before I even start this post I have to direct your attention to my treat site (yes, I'm plugging once again!). I'm currently doing a giveaway (my very first) and I'd love to get everyone involved! So if you have a dog or know someone who has a dog that would love to get 3 free biscuits head on over and see what it's all about!

We got some amazing news the other day! D came home from work and informed me that not only did the big bosses (not the really big ones, but the important people lol) at CAT recognize that he is the only one who knows what's going on in his department but because of this, they gave him a promotion! He is now a supervisor! Woohoo! And with this comes perks ladies (and gentlemen should there be any). He gets a $1 more an hour (which doesn't sound like a lot, but it is) and he gets dibs on the good over time! So not only will we be able to finally pay all our bills in just a couple checks but we can get off Link. If you have ever been on gov. assistance you know how good it feels to finally be able to get off of it. It's like a huge weight has been lifted and we can breathe again. It's awesome! Oh but the good news doesn't end there kids! Wait for it...D said I should start looking for..wait for it...(enough waiting?) a house...to buy!! We want to do contract for deed, you started this whole deal a year or 2 ago but never found anything we could afford that was worth the money in this area. It appears though (from looking online) that a lot of people are moving out of the area we want. If we're lucky we can find something good. I'll even take a fixer upper, in fact, I would sort of like one. I like the idea of making my house the way I want it instead of how someone else liked it. I'm a control freak like that lol.
Some not so fabulous news I got the same day D came home with his, G's SD is going for visitation after 6yrs of not seeing or contacting him. Lovely. I'll have more info as the BS progresses.
