Two Year Anniversary

June 17th, 2023 at 02:40 pm

June 20th makes two years in my current position. I know I've said it a lot, but this promotion was the best thing for me both professionally & personally. And while I worry a lot with my mother's Parkinson's struggles, I don't have the stress at work that I did which makes it easier to shoulder the personal struggles.

It was definitely a situation where I just kept my head down & did the work and I ended up reaping the benefits. In addition to getting to work in a less stressful though busier environment, I get to work with really great people. I've had several raises & cash awards. While I won't get a step increase on this anniversary, I got one last year & will get another next year. Depending on when I retire I should be at or near the top of the salary scale. I'm so thankful everyday for this opportunity.

In health news, I have my first colonoscopy on Monday. I took the screening test, which was positive, so I now need the colonoscopy as follow-up. My mom has her colonoscopy on Wednesday. I will stay to be there for my mom. I pray it goes well for both of us. My dad definitely doesn't need anymore put on his shoulders. I am reading how some of you are dealing with your own health struggles, whether it be yourselves or your loved ones. I pray for better times ahead for you as well.

    It's a real accomplishment to not only be financially rewarded at work, but to also have a happy and cohesive work environment. That can be rare these days in the work force. My experience with having a colonoscopy is in line with what a lot of people say, that the prep is the worst part, and for me even that wasn't too bad. Hoping that everything goes well for both you and your mom.

    How excellent to have a good work environment and feel appreciated.

    Hope the colonoscopy turns out to be just a precaution.
