Thoughts on working again

April 28th, 2007 at 07:58 am

I received my first paycheck yesterday, which means I also have my 401k off to a healthy start again. I made extra payments to the two credit cards that we have accumulated for DHs wood business.

I was able to pay on some medical & dental bills...and even had money left over for our emergency account. A very nice feeling.

Surgprisingly, I do not miss being home at all. I am enjoying my new responsibilities. My boss is one of those rare ones who understands his employees strengths and develops positions that really fit those strengths. So, I get to do things like organize his appointments, the birthdays and anniversary dates for staff, make travel/hotel arrangements for staff and board conferences, keep minutes (a very new feat for me, but one Im enjoying) and maintaining company files. He is giving me great freedom to not only take notes at the meetings, but to also voice my opinions...so I am able to impact the 'big decisions' in my own 'yellow' way. (I am the only female in these meetings, so he appreciates when I do speak up). I am also able to organize things as I see fit.

I am learning to balance the work and home life. Laundry is done at odd hours now, so I don't spend all weekend catching up. The other household members are having to pitch in, which they are doing so far.

We have had a few more meals out...but I attribute this, in part, to my horrible cold/cough and not feeling well this last week and a half.

So, my work life report card would score an A so far. And, the extra money is going to be really nice too.

    What a smooth transistion you've made! If it's an A with being ill, it'll be an A++ when you're feeling 100%. Best wishes!!
