Recognized at Work!

December 23rd, 2015 at 01:18 am

Today I got an email with a link to the most recent newsletter for our city department. Each month people are chosen from across the city to be recognized based on a theme.

If I remember correctly from when my supervisor was recognized (I asked) you go to a dinner and get some kind of certificate, maybe a day off work and some money??

This month's theme was about community.

Guess who was picked from the bus company? Big Grin

Here's what my boss wrote about me:

"Laura has been working for bus company for just over a year, and she has proven to be a great asset in the way she works with the public, both over the telephone and in person. She truly cares about the community, and has participated in several of our public events promoting ridership by assisting with route information and sharing her sunny disposition."

I asked my boss about it and apparently I wasn't supposed to know yet. Smile Oops.

I'm guessing whatever will happen will happen after the new year.

Anyway, pretty cool I think. Smile

So my property manager is coming to change my furnace filter tomorrow.

Guess what I did tonight? About another 45 minutes of focused cleaning/picking up. My place is looking pretty spiffy about now if I do say myself. Smile Although I do have all the slides, etc piled up in a corner. (I told him that I had a bunch of stuff I'd brought back with me that I didn't have a good place for.)

So, hopefully no nasty email surprise later.

My brother sent NE and I a box of Harry & David chocolates for Christmas. It came today. I really appreciate it, although now I feel kind of bad because I didn't get him anything ... that's been our understanding for a long time. Not sure why he decided to send something this year. Oh well, it was thoughtful of him. (Been practicing that a lot ...)

    I was just noticing on your sidebar your bit about saving for a down payment and NE saving for a down payment. I did not know you planned to buy a house with NE! I must have missed a post. Smile

    Congratulations for being recognized at work!
    Your brother must have been inspired to send you a gift. That is exactly what gift giving is meant to be. No guilt required! I'm sure you will thank him when the time is right.

    And nice work keeping your apartment in tidy order!

    Thanks everyone Big Grin
    Ray - That's cool - didn't know that.

    Petunia 100 - We've done a lot of talking about it, some discussing of how finances would work, etc. Looked at lots of house advertisements seeing what we each liked/disliked ... So, yes, most likely we will be buying a house sometime this fall. Smile

  13. Petunia 100 Says:

    I knew you were planning to buy a house in the near future, I just didn't realize you were buying it together. Smile
    Best of luck to you in this endeavor.
