See post below for last night's rant. I don't retract a word of it, but I started thinking about timing, and things I have to do to get ready to put the house on the market. I may let them string me along a few more weeks, just so I can time my planned unemployment for nicer weather up north. I don't know. It'll depend on the answer to a straightforward question: So, when does my raise become effective? If I get hemming and hawwing, or worse, a retraction, I just don't think I can listen to it anymore without screaming and/or walking out. I'll try to be good, because I really want to do this on my terms and not in a snit.
I need to paint the master bedroom and both bathrooms. I was looking around the room while brushing my teeth last night, and finally figured out the appropriate color for my master bedroom - a nice warm taupe would work. Not too dark, it'll look soothing and master-bedroom-ish and also neutral enough to sell. (I am corporate, see me decorate with an eye toward resale.) I think this weekend I'll visit Home Despot and bring home some paint samples. Oooh, Baby's first trip to Home Depot! She needs to get used to it, we'll be there often this spring. I need to spruce up the yard, and that'll need a head start to "take" before it will look like anything. I'm glad DST starts early this year, I can get some yard things done in the evening after work if I'm not coming home in the dark.
So, though I may still end up fed up enough to resign tomorrow, I am going to try to be patient. Timing is everything.
