Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Group Home

I haven't gotten a raise in years for various reasons.  When I was with a large company, raises were 'frozen due to budget issues, etc, etc' - most of us were just happy to not be 'laid off'.

4 years ago, I left the large company to follow my team to open their own independent firm.  Clearly, they needed time to get things going and while I was bonused very well different times throughout last year, this is my first hourly rate raise I have had in, hmmm about 7 years.

I am paid monthly and this increase is such a fabulous blessing.  Don't get me wrong, bonuses are awesome and always very appreciated but they can't be counted on like this raise to my hourly rate.

I can't wait to start my new budget!

That's wonderful news. You must be really good at budgeting!! I don't think I could get one check per month and make it last that long!! How do you do it?
