the other manager was let go :( I am having a hard time with it because even though I had suspicions, I really didn't see this coming. I know that my promotion has nothing to do with her being let go, but it's still hard. I was working with her on a project this morning and then at 12 I get a call from the director (she had travelled to our Montreal office where other manager was and was calling me from there) to say that

I totally can understand feeling bad for your colleague - that is so typically Bex! It is what makes you who you are.

But 10%, then 12% bonus on the new amount (really means 13%) and most of all the extra vacation days!! WOOO HOOO.

Please take your days! Even adding one on here and there for a three day weekend to decompress is helpful to your stress level.

I remember a couple years ago when you were pondering this job, glad you took it now?

Hey, how are they about continued education?
