A few things...
* I got the promotion! On Friday I met with my manager and Human Resources, and the news was well-received *g* I was told I was very professional, well-prepared, gave concise, thorough answers without having to think about my responses. Now this makes me laugh when I think about it because I was so nervous and I don't even remember what I said, other than I thought it was all jibberish. My boss asked me if I thought there was any doubt, and I told him of course there was. See, the decision has to be unanimous by the entire panel of interviewers (there were 4, and almost ended up being 6), so there's always a chance someone might not agree. So while I thought I might have deserved it (yeah, I'm conceited that way) that doesn't mean everyone is as smart as me LOL. Anyway, what a fabulous way to start the long holiday weekend :)
** Dad is doing well, has regained his sense of humor and adding more gray to my mother's hair...nothing new there. And what a huge relief that is to have things back to normal, though he'll be off work for 3 months. It's definitely been a wake-up call and has made me more aware of my own health. It's never too early to start looking for ways to be healthier. I've started exercising more, and it's been helping.
***I finally read the book "Atonement" by Ian McEwan yesterday. I'm glad I saw the movie first, otherwise I don't think I would have stuck with the book. I actually enjoyed it, and now I think I want to re-watch the movie, though the movie was pretty faithful to the book. I'm also glad I waited until I was in the right frame of mind to read it. I feel like it refreshed my brain and satisfied my rare need for a more complex, thought-provoking story.
What have you been up to?
