I was clicking through our online payroll trying to calculate my taxes and saw a paycheck for tomorrow when we just got paid last Friday. A few more clicks and saw under the "Bonus:" headline, a nice sum sitting there. I have a feeling my boss will call me into his office later today and tell me that I'm getting a bonus AND a raise, but for now the bonus feels nice.

Germany, here I come! My in-laws are going there for their 60th birthday in June/July and invited everybody to come with. We just have to pay our tickets there and then food/lodging will be taken care of by our in-laws.
