In case you didn't read about my work lamenting in Christine's post about looking for a new job... I love my job (most days)... but I hate the commute. It's an hour each way, in good traffic. I've been there almost 11 years, and not to toot my own horn but I after all these years I am the go-to person in the department, I am also the fastest and most accurate (except I had a boo-boo this week) at what I do.
I guess all of that is working in my favor, because I've started talking to my boss and VP of Operations about working from home when the baby comes. And it wasn't even my idea.... it was VPOs. I will thank his wife for that one, because she worked from home this summer (they have 2 DDs 8 and 6).
So excited. It's like a dream come true. We're working out details like phones, connections (there putting in a new T1 line), etc and we plan on doing a few trial runs before baby comes.
Oh and they announced that our department only is getting moved to quarterly bonus (opposed to mid-year only), and they are retro-active for all of Q3. Total total sweetness!!!!
