We went out last night! Not that we never go out, but we got dressed up and made reservations and everything!

The reason for the big night was that I found out on Thursday that my promotion is going to come through! I've been working my tail off for the last five years for this. And for the last two years, it's been really extreme nose-to-the-grindstone sort of work to make sure I was in good shape at this point. This is huge! It will make an enormous difference in my stress level (since I've been thinking about it for five years). I wasn't expecting to hear about it for a while, so I hadn't even had time to get worried about it. It actually crossed my mind last week, but I was able to put the thought aside, thinking I would have several more weeks to start worrying!

We were both too exhausted on Thursday for a proper celebration, but Mr. X did bring home some baklava. (Mmm, baklava.) On Friday, he brought me roses, a balloon, and a card. Yesterday, we went out to a really nice steakhouse and had steak (with bleu cheese--yum), with saganaki for an appetizer, creme brulee for dessert, and nice red wine. We went all out!

So, yay! The good news really hasn't sunk in yet, and it won't take effect for a while, but it's so nice to be on this side of the whole thing!
