The Joys of Being an Employee

It finally rained after some scorching weather.  The veggie garden is going to be appreciative of that.  I was supposed to find out the details of my promotion today, so I could make my decision.  Unfortunately, the powers that be decided not to honor their commitment to tell us today and delay the info dispersing another two weeks.  Needless to say, I am "disappointed" with my employer.  I personally feel that if you make a commitment (especially on something as important as someone's livelihood), you should honor it.  Especially, if you espouse that you value your employees.  On another note, my boss has been incredibly kind about the whole thing, and that makes me think that maybe I don't want to move.  My work father is not making it any easier by being so awesome.

This weekend's plan is to complete the craft room so that I can get to creating.  On the creating front, I have gotten a head start by adding tags to all my posts (it turns out I own alot of purple clothes).  Maya has been a trip lately.  She showed her displeasure to the hubs (for being late) by tearing up mail (nothing important).  It was pretty funny.  She also now barks at things that are only visible to her (that is not so funny).  All in all I have an awesome dog.  Pets add such fullness to one's life: joy, humor, and love.  Regardless of how bad my day has been, I come home to a welcome that screams "I am so HAPPY to see.  I LOVE YOU."  I recommend a pet for everyone, it will at the very least cure you of glumness (I'm not a fan of the word depressed, I think glum is more accurate).  Oh, and below is what I wore today.  Orange is another fantastic color.

Dress: Banana Republic (outlet)
Shoes: Moda
Earrings: self made


  1. Red looks lovely on you. I hope all of the work stuff's sorted out soon, especially so that you can make your decision. x hivenn

  2. I am so with you on the orange!

    And my veggies and I have been appreciating the rain too. I love how keeping a garden has changed my perspective on cloudy weather :)

  3. That's horrible that your employer is stringing you along while the other job offer is waiting for an answer! My company prides themselves constantly on how much they value their employees, too, but I've had to fight for everything I've gotten from them.

    I couldn't agree more about the importance of having pets in your life!! :) And you look awesome in that dress. LOVE the shoes!!

    Hang in there. :)
