Woo-Hoo

7am budget meeting - No Layoffs! I think we got very positive news that the city is not planning to lay off any employees and we are all getting a 3.4% cost of living increase for sure so that we can remain in the promised top 75th percentile of city salaries in the State. We are having our insurance increased 15% which will be around 20$ a month (given that my insulin alone w/out insurance is about $1600 a month I'm good with the 15%) which seemed to get a ton of people all ticked off. And they are combining our sick and vacation time into just paid time off but that will actually give everyone 12 additional hours of leave, you just can't roll it over at the end of the year, no biggie.

So all in all I'm feeling much better about the whole j-o-b right now. Thanks for the prayers :)
