In about 2 hours, I was due to jump on a plane and fly out to California to see my sis and fam for the weekend!
Crazy, I know.
I was going to take the red eye back – land about 5:30 am on Monday – rush home, shower, change and head into work like – What? I’ve got this, no big deal. hahahaha
Sadly, the receptionist at my firm resigned on Wednesday of this week due to health reasons, after already being out for a week and a half.
Um. Yes. This would be occurring at the on set of the 2018 tax season.
Her position is…..my right hand person.
I wish her well and then some. Really!
But holy moly, that puts me in a very tough and demanding position for the next few months.
Such is life.
I/We will survive and thrive!
I rescheduled my trip to see my sis and peeps to June 2018 when the kids are out of school and we can spend some major fun time together!
By the way, I have already booked and paid for the flight. I do not care who resigns when, what or where, we will figure something out because mama jets in June.
I am going to California in June for two reasons: (a) I already deserve it and will deserve it even more on the other side of this tax season AND (b) family is so important and I am going to love on mine. In person.
However, let’s back this truck up and give credit where credit is due.
I threw out an idea for our tax season kickoff and to my surprise and delight, my bosses heartily agreed.
Not only that, but the office will be closing early one work day for this absolutely amazing fun kickoff event! I certainly did not see that one coming.
I love *happy* surprises.
After all, we all really pretty much be living together at work until April 2018…..when the glorious tax deadline finally arrives….and then, hello, we are back to getting off at noon on Fridays and having real weekends until December. Rainbows in sight!
At present, I can not say any more about this mind blowing surprise because this article will appear on my Facebook feed and I am Facebook friends with a few of my co-workers.
I certainly do not want to give away any info @ the surprise should they decide to read one of my post, yeah, for the first time. hahahaha (You know that is how it would go down if ever they were to read my blog, it would be about this surprise. hahahaha).
My bosses are pretty darn cool. For. Real.
It takes a lot integrity and business smarts to take care of your employees in such a way that forges fun, relaxed relationships that spill over into the work/team environment, aka we are all in this together, let’s get it done.
Bottom line….wouldn’t you like to work with people who you respect, as well as, enjoy their company, who you know will tow the line and get things done without totally grating your nerves?
Work relationships are what drive the ship.
I am very grateful to be associated with a firm that wants it all – both for the company and the employees. Talk about win-win.
I leave you with these visions, ideas, thoughts…and of course ask that you send up warm wishes for me and my co-workers to make it to the other side of April 2018…..tax season……hahahahha
Be the change you wish to see in your work environment (not fluffy words, seriously works).
