I'm so excited, I woke up this morning and checking my paystub at JCPenney.com, only to see I've gotten a raise. One I was not expecting. It's only 25 cents, but that's 25 cents I wasn't making when I started. I'm so happy. That's a really great surprise. I think my family's luck is finally changing. Yesterday my parents signed on their dream home and won 150 bucks on a scratch ticket, and I'm getting unexpected raises at work. I think I might go play the lotto tonight.
