I am a bad blogger

I haven't deserted you all.  I just don't have a lot to write about.

I spend my time doing two things lately--

1. Relaxing in a complete zen state.  I spend 75% of my time on a lounge chair, in a pool and/or reading a good book.  It's awesome, it's amazing and I've never felt better in my entire life.

Then.. reality hits and and I spend the other 25% of my time

2. Absolutely panicking about our upcoming edition.  Mostly the money aspect.  I was really hoping that we'd get our step increases this year.  We haven't had one in four years now <to the tune of at least $12,000> and it terrifies me.  I can't even pay attention to whether or not other government workers are getting one this year.  After three years of being one of the only groups not getting one, I'd prefer to live in la la land and not know.  I would love nothing more than for the money gods to send us a bone.

We don't have a contract for the upcoming year yet so we will be getting our steps this year for sure. We started out the same way last year too & when they decided on a contract they added $200 across the board to each step. It's better than nothing, but it screwed the people at the top of the pay scale. I hope you get something!

I hear you on that one. We are getting our step this year, but insurance went up. Let's just say that I could possibly either be making the same I have been or possibly less. Neat.

At least 75% of the time is bliss! Good luck on getting the step increase!

We got 1/2 a step up for 2 years or something like that. It is not good but I guess there is nothing we can do about it :( It totally sucks but I wouldn't give up those summers for anything :)

girl you have a LOT going on right now -- it is completely understandable that you take a step back for the moment.
Prayers for you guys -- you'll get it worked out. God has a plan for y'all and He is so good!
can't wait to hear more about your addition
