There are perks to being an Executive Assistant.
This week I’ve spent some time sorting our A’s and Giants Season Tickets. Knowing I’ll get to go to a few games this year with family and friends – perk!
The catering company we have an account with is so happy that I’m using them again that they’re offering me a free box lunch when I place an order or refer them. Today I’m trying their chicken sandwich with a goat cheese spread, pecans and cranberries – perk!
My boss will be leaving just after lunch today to head to a meeting, and odds are he’ll tell me to take off early, too. He’s the President of the company, so what he says, goes – perk!
Tomorrow is my four year anniversary with the company, and thanks to the sly dogs in our IT department, my picture is currently posted on the intranet wishing me a Happy Anniversary! I’ve been getting all kinds of congratulatory emails and comments today, which I don’t mind at all. I’m so glad that I work here and that I support the people I do. Despite the circumstances that brought me back into the work world, I couldn’t feel more grateful that I landed where I did.
This upcoming weekend doesn’t hold anything amazing in it, though I do consider time at home with my kids pretty wonderful. I’m feeling inspired to do some organizing, which is always a good thing. I recently turned our “junk drawers” into a miracle of neatness, so my next project is to go through some of our under cabinets and either toss what we never use or get it put in some order that makes more sense. I bought a large basket that is meant to hold all of our various Tupperware pieces in all shapes and sizes. Wouldn’t it be nice to have easy access to them every time I have leftovers to put away? I’m giddy just thinking about it.
Sad, but true.
I may also take the kids on a little side trip to a nearby park that has a fruit center, playground, train ride, animals, candy shop, etc. The weather has been so fantastic that I don’t want to stay inside much. I also foresee much bike riding in our future as Noelle is obsessed with riding as much as she can. (Thanks Jamey for the bike that she is mad for!) She squeezes out every single drop of daylight that she possibly can before being forced back into the house from the dark. Thankfully, Charlie and I don’t mind humoring her by joining her on our bikes, too.
P.S. My lunch just arrived and it is Uh-May-Zing.
Have a great weekend!
