I got an award today at work from my manager. Equivalent of $250 that you can use to purchase items from an award catalog. I selected $150 in Target GCs, $50 in Barnes and Noble GCs, $25 in Shell Gas GC and $25 in Borders GC. I was pretty happy, it wasn't the amount as much as it was the recognition of how much work I do. I will have to pay taxes of course. Last time I got an award they took out around 52% in taxes Frown We are 3 days behind on our release right now. Hopefully I can make it up without having to work a ton of extra hours.

My sister had surgery today to remove one of her ovaries. She had a huge tumor, but they think it's not cancerous. She'll be going home on Friday. Mom and Dad took my nieces out for dinner tonight at Chili's and I joined them. $8

Finished listening to the library book on tape Fatal Tide by Iris Johansen. Mystery/Romance. Very good.

    A well deserved award!! I actually went to the top when they were charging us the taxes on gifts...Obviously, I couldnt change the tax laws, but I did get the company to change how they paid rewards...They paid us the extra in cash to cover the taxes.

    Why did I do it? Well, one year they gave me a weekend trip to the coast. But my paycheck ended up being over $100 short due to gift taxes and it was the payday before Christmas and I had 4 children!!! I took the gift certificate back to HR and told them I 'could not afford' their gift...(I truly couldnt)

    From that day on, the company made financial amends to cover gift taxes.

    Sounds like you made some great gift choices!!! And again, a very much deserved pat on the back!
