The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The round up is back! 

The Good....
I got a promotion! Yes... finally! I've worked for the same agency since April 2009 and have never got a promotion. Yes, I was recognized with awards and bonuses but never have I actually got a promotion. While this one doesn't change my salary at all, at least it's a promotion! I'm hoping the money promotion happens soon though! I've got bills to pay and it's called a mortgage. Ha! 

The Bad...
The weather. I moved to California so I could be warmer year round. Um... did someone get up Mr. Sunshine's butt? Because December and January have been downright freezing! I mean granted I haven't seen any snow and it's far warmer here than it is in West Virginia but it's cold! The nights get really chilly and my heavy coat hasn't gotten a reprieve. I guess the sunrises make up for it though...
I couldn't ask for a prettier one. 
The Ugly...
Josh still isn't living in California with me yet. Some days are really hard then there is days that everything is ok. We just try to get through each day and believe in the fact that with each day that's passed that we are another day closer to the day he can move out here. In the meantime, we facetime, text and call as much as we possibly can.

Dude that's awesome about your promotion, kudos to you! And hey, the weather could be worse, I feel like I'm living in an ice skating rink right now.

Congrats on your promotion! It's funny that you think it's been freezing in CA . . . I love chilly weather and wish it were colder! I'd love snow. :)

When will Josh be able to move out there? Does it have to do with his job and/or custody situation? I hope it's soon!

That's so great that you got a promotion! Congrats! Just remind yourself how cold it is in WV and you'll feel warm inside. We finally hit freezing for the firs time in about a month to be followed up with endless days of snow.
