Great job news and great food!  
Yesterday must've been a great day for job news. :) Not only did irisheyes77 and orion74 have some wonderful job news that has kept me smiling all weekend, but I have a little too. :) I was officially offered the promotion at work and I accepted it! :) The job pays a lot more than my current position (and very close to what I was making with all the sales incentives when I was in the field.) It's a semi-managerial position and I just feel so fortunate that they'd even consider me for it! :)

Of course a lot of this also hinges on me passing my exam and I have been studying very hard these past few weeks, so hopefully I'll be ready to take it by April 5th (my test date). I found out yesterday that I have three chances A YEAR to take the test and not three chances total - so if for some reason I didn't pass it this time, I still have two other chances. Whew! That certainly takes a lot of the pressure off of me!

And after reading about Ruby Tuesday's in kananigirl's journal and seeing all the delicious food on their website, Mark & I had to go there today! We thought 11am might be a little too early to go, but once we got there we were glad we went so early because by 12, the place was packed! And Mark & I were both planning on eating dessert before we got there (we even picked out the desserts we wanted), but after eating our entrees, we were so full that we couldn't even look at the dessert menu! :P That just means we'll have to go back again. ;)

And you won't believe this, but I'm still contemplating my May NYC trip. I wouldn't want the show tickets I bought to go to waste... And I'd really like to see all of my friends. I have until tomorrow to decide for sure if I'll be going. :P

I'm going back to hit the books, I hope you're all having a nice weekend! :)

Thanks Andrea! :) And thanks for your words of encouragement on the exam! :)

Edited because this is what I wanted to say earlier, but it came out wrong - I think my brain is fried. :P

I'm sure you won't need the luck. I know you'll do just fine. :)

Congrats, that's great news and I'm sure you'll do absolutely fine in your exam.

I think you've got the perfect excuse there, of course you need to go back to try the dessert menu:-)

Oh, thank you, Carrie! :) That's so sweet!

Yup, it's the perfect excuse. :) I wonder if it'll work with Mark for next weekend? ;)

*LOL* I know I had to put that site about Ruby Tuesday's up. I'm glad you got to go. What did you guys eat? I'm going to be free next week, so I have to make plans to eat there.
Sheri: Kate Monstershutterbug93 on March 21st, 2004 10:52 am (UTC)
Oh, Ruby Tuesday's was so good! Thanks for letting us know that it opened. :) I had the salad bar and the hickory burger - it was SO filling! The salad was really good though - we have to go back there to eat dinner one night. :)

Congrats on your promotion! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you pass the exam and get it over with!

Thanks so much! :) And thank you for the luck - I think I'll need all the luck I can get with the exam! :)

Yay! It's time for us to Woo Hoo in your journal now! :D

That is also great about getting three times a year to take the exam and not just three times total. I really think that you'll pass it the first time, though.

We like Ruby Tuesday's a lot, but haven't been there lately. Their baked potatoes are huge!
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on March 21st, 2004 10:58 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, Amanda! :) I've been just Woo Hoo-ing all over the place this weekend! ;)

And it was SUCH a relief to find out that I didn't have only one chance to take the exam! I think I'll do better on the exam because I won't have all that stress hanging over my head now. :)

I haven't tried their baked potatoes, but... YAY!... that's another excuse for Mark and I to go back there! ;)
