I have applied for two promotions at my workplace. I would be happy with either one, but I am leaning towards the one that is more computer than lab. My co-worker has recommended me for the other position, however. I am honored that he thought of me & put in a good job word for me with my xxxxxxx. My xxxxxxxalso called to ask if I had applied for either position & seemed pleased when I told her that I had applied for both. Our xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx has also inquired as to whether I would be interested in other positions. So fingers crossed & prayers prayed that one of them works out. It's funny, but just the thought of the opportunity to move up has made my days better. This week in particular has been peaceful, even though I've been crazy busy. I really just want to go out on a high note with a good inspection.
I made a lot of changes when I became lab supervisor. I had to take a fragmented lab & make it a cohesive core lab. None of the changes were easy & I didn't always have the support that I thought I should have, but I'm super proud with how I persevered. I learned a lot about myself & my character. I found out that I was a lot stronger than I thought. It has given me confidence.
The promotion would come with a small raise. No raises are big in government work, but it's sufficient for me.
I haven't done anything with the gift from my mom. I'm just sitting on it until I decide what to do. I think I'd like to fund my IRA for 2021, but maybe I should wait for a little downturn in the market.
I can't believe that it's just over one week until Easter! Time is flying by.
