Talked to my boss. She took our conversation to the CEO and then brought it up with leadership. Said something to the effect of, she hasn’t ever managed anyone like me, who makes $x and can still come away feeling like they’re getting screwed. Reading between the lines, she wanted to come back and say to me that I’m being ungrateful, but leadership’s conclusion was that they needed to give me clear indication on my career path with the firm.

Anyway, the number isn’t changing. It’s reassuring to know that it was solely my boss coming up with an arbitrary number, and not the full committee. But I’m getting screwed relative to my peers at the firm, and it has more to do with preserving profitability than it does judging value added, which is completely contrary to how comp works as explained by management.

The longer I feel this way, the more willing I am to give up $20-30k to hit the reset button and get back to working in investments at some other firm. I’m not getting any additional happiness from the money anyway.

You can just give it to me if itís not doing anything for you.

Obviously Iím hoping you come to a favorable resolution, one way or another. It sucks being miserable at work when you have to spend so much of your life there.

this is becoming clearer to me over time. i'm not sure i can work in this industry for the rest of my life because most days i hate it. i'm not sure what else i can do, but i lie awake some nights thinking about quitting and playing poker full time, even though i know i could never actually do that. anything to get out of going into an office every day.

They said my appraisal will be completed by end of business today and my mortgage processor says that could mean anywhere from 3-8 pm. If itís low I will pursue legal action.

It taking all day wouldnít be a big deal if I had literally anything else to do other than to sit her worrying itís going to come in low. Iím working on projects that have been cancelled just in case they become un-cancelled.

The verdict is everything went fine because everything not going fine costs every person involved (except Napa).

Closing is just a surreal feeling. Eight people around a table, watching you, willing you to sign away the next 30 years of paychecks.

House is mostly done and great. Lots of yard stuff to do. Mowing this thing is a bitch. If I didnít need the exercise, iíd Get a ride mower

Step son is fine, has had the same job for 3 years and been out of the house for at least two. Heís turned it around

Dogs are fun. Life is simple

Headed to West Palm next weekend for a quick getaway. I will worry too much about the dogs and hopefully not drink to excess. Hoping to get some good beach weather on Saturday and hoping there arenít sea lice, jellyfish or anything else nightmarish in the water.

Napa, the appraisal will come in. Both of ours laughingly came in right on the number or with a $500 cushion. Itís rigged
I make $31,000 dollars a year and I have a home.
