I just watched Sunday's episode of Desparate Housewives. It ended as if this was the last episode...ever. I couldn't believe that they had Gabrielle's daughter being a little chunk. We all know that she will grow up to be beautiful like her mother.

This afternoon, my boss called me into his office to "talk to me about something". I could feel my breath skip. I was afraid that he was going to tell me he was resigning. He told me that he was going to become the CFO. I breathed a sigh of relief. I almost forgot to congratulate him I was so relieved. He was CFO of our old bank until the merger closed. I then confessed to him that I had halfway lied to the trainer yesterday that I worked for the CFO and will continue working for him. His promotion fixed my lie. It wasn't long until word got out. When I went upstairs to help clean up after the board of directors meeting, the corporate secretary said, "I have a secret." I told her that I already knew about it. We are so excited for him. Of course, he is so modest that it takes away our fun. He'll do a great job. He is extremely smart (Princeton, Wharton) but yet he is so low key. Now maybe my job won't change as much. I was really scared about learning a lot of new things. I know that after the merger closes in 4 weeks, it will be a learning process, but not to the extreme that I thought it was going to be. I already feel a lot of stress lifted off of me.

I hear it thundering. I hope it is not going to storm. There are no watches or warnings on television. But..we do need the rain, badly.
