Either he can read my mind, or he's reading my blog. And so far, it's working out in my favor.
The boss and I finally had a chance to chat this week. The news on one end was not good - no more money in the budget for me. I expressed my disappointment and was about to counter with a "Well, what about part time for more per hour?"
Except that I didn't have to say a word.
He said, "Have you thought about part-time? We could potentially bump up the hourly rate but you only work two and a half days a week."
Um, did you just totally do some Jedi mind trick and read my mind?
Nothing's set in stone, details have yet to be worked out, but it looks like part-time might happen leaving me free to be with my baby and play with some ponies (maybe).
Perhaps I should start concentrating really hard on four weeks vacation per year....
