What's the point?

This week my boss's boss basically told my boss that, although I do about a million times more work than my job description dictates, they aren't going to properly compensate me because I am already doing the work for what I currently get paid and he can't see why we should change that.

With the cost of childcare, travel, and keeping my wardrobe "professional" I am actually doing this job for free. I only keep this job because I've been promised advancement when my boss retires, which she claims will be before too long. Also, I had such a hard time getting a job again after my 2 year baby haitus. But I am not suffering the degredation and frustration that I experienced at COT EVER again. Mr. H. says he would be okay with me quitting, but do I really want to be a domestic goddess again, when it almost made me crazy the last time?

Should I:
A) Screw my boss and only do the work I was hired for despite the fact that she needs so much more?
B) Give the uber-boss an ultimatium and be prepared to walk away?
C) Soldier on hoping my boss wears out and retires or that I find a better job?

None of these choices seem like good decisions.
