ME challenge - week 15

Linking up with Dolli-Mama's ME challenge! :) Thanks so much Dolli-Mama for hosting such a great linkup every week!


I am having the same thoughts as All Rolled Into One this week. I am really having a hard time not to repeat posts about things I do weekly. I went to lunch last Friday and today with dear friends at work. I always enjoy this ME time. It is the one time of the week that I can really relax knowing I have only four more hours until my weekend begins.

I also picked up a few more summer tops last weekend! Of course I love retail ME works every time!

This may seem weird, but one I haven't mentioned before. My boss sent me notice that my self evaluation was due for June's round of compensation review and evaluations. My first reaction was utter despair....who likes doing self evaluations?!?! She always gives us a few weeks notice, but I am one that can't sit on it for long. It is one worry that I would rather just be done with. I returned it to her within 24 hours. Once I hit the send button all the other worries started popping in my head....what if's SUCK! You probably really want me to get to the point if all this.....I got a positive reply and that made my evening! It makes the
sacrifices of being a working Mommy all worth it! I had to list my strengths. My very first one was " Very Dedicated - Of course my family comes first, but my career is a very close 2nd. ", so getting a positive reply totally makes what I do worth it!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Take Care!

I think it's okay to repeat posts. It means you enjoy doing that and it's great "ME time"!

Congrats on the positive response to your self-evaluation! It definitely makes it worthwhile.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for your reply and visiting my blog! :)

Repeating is ok...I just have been pushing myself to do come up with new (in addition) :)

I totally "get" what you mean about the eval. Good that is over and you've already gotten a positive response!!!

I know exactly how you feel! I just got my performance appraisal completed at work too and it was such a wonderful feeling to get all the positive feedback I got from my boss. I know he hates to have to lose me from our school next year (district plan, not his), but he did everything in his power to get me another job and I was so grateful.

Congrats on the positive response to your evaluation! :)

I don't think I get any ME time, really. I can't even go to the bathroom alone anymore. The peapod is positively glued to me 24/7!

It's always good to see a proud working mother; and nothing like recognition to make the sarcrifices seem worth it. Good job girl!
