Cheers

A "gift" was given to me this week at work. I actually ran out of PTO (Paid Time Off) days around September of last year. I had some unexpected trips (mom broke her hip in May and I went to Albuquerque for the week) and 2 weeks of illnesses between me and Peanut. My mom is fine, by the way...she's actually better than fine...her recovery time was far less than expected. Anyway, back to work...At the start of this year I was about 6 days in the hole. Here's where the gift came in...they decided to wipe my slate clean! My insides were jumping for joy, and I of course thanked them over and over....

But, I declined their offer. You see, there were some days I took off simply because I couldn't "deal" with life...aka, days I shouldn't have taken off. This year's resolution is to not do that anymore. Separating personal feelings from the work I need to do will not be easy, but it's a goal I need to reach. So far I've done pretty well considering I've started this year with a break up.

Well, it's been a long week, and this is all I feel like writing for the moment. Perhaps I'll have a burst of writing energy later in the weekend.

Cheers!

  2. All I can do is to echo Stephen & tell you "You're a better man than I, Gunga Din!"

  4. I love when things come together unexpectantly. I rarely take days off even when I am sick. Normally, if I am out it's for someone else (like Monday when I took Tony to the ER) I figure Karma is good to me... and I rarely get THAT sick that I need to be home.

    Good luck with your resolution.

  5. Sounds like you are starting the new year off with an awesome attitude! I love that things at work started on such a positive note. Don't feel bad about needing a day or two at home- sometimes we need days just as much mentally as we do physically.
