I told myself I would do it, and I did

Thursday, April 05, 2018

I have the duty in my role as an operations specialist at the bank to pay the taxes of our escrowed loans. Our largest county provides us a list of taxes for ALL properties and our IT guy parses out the ones we need and puts it on a list for me to compare to my list. The other counties I require the actual paper tax bill. So, the list that IT put together was missing 21 loans and had 7 that were paid already or are paid by a different department. It took a day and a half to get both lists of 673 loans totaling $526,733.58 to match. But, I did it. Last year, my first year with the responsibility, was a struggle. I didn’t have it done until 4/10/17 and even then, I needed a co-worker who had done it before to make it work. But this year, I was determined to do it on my own. I wasn’t going to let it beat me so yesterday I buckled down and got it done. I cannot explain the relief and pride I feel having done it all on my own especially so early in the month. It’s a reminder that I can do anything I set my mind to if I stay determined and believe in myself.

    So true..

    We have a new system in place at work and I had posted an entry several times. The amounts matched yet it didn't post. I rechecked, reposted and it still didn't work. Cleared the posting and started again, hit the button and it calculated another amount. Began again -, no luck. Tried the next day and still doesn't post.
    I was determined not to give in and told myself 'I can do this' and I did - finally I get it to post - there were glitches in the system!! I cannot tell you how frustrating it was... But, I was over the moon when I got it done - a huge relief for me too emoticon emoticon emoticon
