I was promoted to a better position within my company a few weeks ago. Although the training did not start yet, I had my review today. I started my job with this company last February. The review went great. I was given a $2 raise & a Christmas bonus. Woohoo! With my last job, I worked there for two and a half years and never got a raise. I did so much for that company, and everyone hated each other there. I am so thankful for the company I work for now. I never imagined I would be this happy at a job. Even though I never imagined working for an accounting firm, I love it!
When I first got to work this morning, my co-workers & boss all said to me: "Did you have fun at the Christmas party? It looked like you had fun!" hahaha. I know I felt silly dancing and laughing so much- but Oh well! Everyone had a good time so it was definitely worth.
After work, I used a free Redbox movie code & walked around the food store looking for something to reward myself with. It sounds silly, but I wanted to celebrate with my parents. I knew they were already cooking dinner, so I didn't want to pick up any real food. I walked around for about 20 minutes before I decided what I wanted - angel food cake & berries! Oh and I couldn't forget the fat free cool whip =) My Mom apparently never had raspberries or blackberries before? My parents thanked me for the dessert & the movie.
I finished my Christmas cards finally & had my dessert. Yum yum! Normally I try not to have an actual dessert - I prefer some kind of snack instead of a baked good - but it definitely was a nice treat. The new training will probably start in January once my position gets filled! I am still nervous & excited! Even though I will be working tons of hours soon... at least I will be paid more & I know I am appreciated at my work!
I still need to figure out what kind of workout schedule I will have. It will be so easy to just forget about the exercise =( Hopefully that does not happen. I wish I had a workout partner closer to home to push me to workout!
Congratulations on the promotion! If you're going to be presseed for time to work out soon, I can't recommend kettlebells highly enough. You could get one and just do swings intervals for 10-20 minutes and get a great workout. 3106 days ago
Congratulations Kim! How ironic is this: today I was just thinking what a very intelligent and happy person you are and it kind of made me wonder whwt kind of job you had and how lucky they should be to have u working for them. I ran a dept in my engineering firm and its hard to find people who love their job and get along with their coworkers. Well u answered my question! Your company is truly fortunate to have someone as Positive and committed as yourself and they saw that and rewarded you for your hardcwork and comittment. I'm sooo happy for you...but, YOU EARNED IT!!!
