It's officially started - Jordan and I are on vacation. For the next two weeks, Jordan and I will be hanging out in beautiful british columbia. Our roommates are taking care of the house - and I think it will be a great break for both of us as we get used to living together. It's been a good start to the living arrangements - a few hiccups, but thats all settled now and I think we're in a good place moving forward.
It's 8am (ish), and I'm sitting on the couch enjoying my first cup of coffee - Aries (one of my dogs) is at my feet, my mom is gearing up to make home made buns and all in all - it feels like a pretty awesome way to start the week.
As a follow up to my last post - my overtime pay came through and I was also pleasantly surprised by a $600 bonus. I usually get around $1,000 but wasn't expecting anything at all this year - so wahoo! Sure, after taxes it was closer to $380 - but still pretty awesome! This Thursday we should see Jordan's final pay and vacation pay - his employer basically told us if they weren't organized that he wouldn't get his vacation pay until two weeks following - but we've done everything we can to hand-hold them through this process....so we'll see.
