My game plan:
1. Gauge reaction to an early 2009 DE cycle.
2. Get $10k raise by end of 2008 (must, must, must happen!) - my review is tomorrow and this is where I plan to plant the seed. Increases will be known by November and take place in January - Universities are slow, by my lovely private institution is slightly recession proof (so yeah!)
3. Begin clinic inquiries
Where will DE cycle happen?
With him: Local uber expensive clinic
Without him: some place cheaper
In other news: I have been swimming 2-3 times a week and am feeling quite fit, moreso that probably the last 5 years (plus). I am also down another 5 lbs which brings the grant weight loss total to 20lbs - and am now at my same weight from 10 years ago and fitting into size 4 (on the bottom) which feels like a major league accomplishment.
Onward and upward!!!!!
