On The Job

I am thankful to be gainfully employed, with a terrific supervisor and teammates.

Yesterday, we completed 2-1/2 days of meetings, with folks traveling in from all parts of the globe.

I organized the hotel rooms, lunches, snacks, drinks, evening restaurant reservations, some taxi services, located electric cords for laptops, supplied pots and pots of coffee, and lots of cookies.

We exchanged photos of our pets, told stories about kids, travel, hilarious work situations, and heckled our bosses with smiling humor.

The group surprised me with a round of applause, a bouquet of flowers, and a handmade box made from semi-precious stones, in the final minutes of our convention.

The next time the team interacts, we'll be tiny rectangles on each other's monitors on some online appointment, so it was delightful to be in each other's company.

Am very glad to be working remotely again though, as home is where the cats are!

Oh yes, and The Hubby...*wink*

My head would have been spinning off my neck with all that responsibility, but you are amazing and pulled it off! Bravo!
Lovely gifts to acknowledge your gifts and talents!

I hope you are keeping cool...my car thermometer Tuesday said it was 101 at about 330pm...who knows about the 15th.

Am thankful to be retired now, but you are blessed to have found a
"special place" in todays rather crazy/upside/down work world!
Good for you ...

Katie Isabella said...

That pleased even me who had nothing to do with it, as I sat here reading of all your work; and of the wonderful showing of appreciation to you. You did good, as they say and what a wonderful thank you. I am glad you were so appreciated.

So good that you had a good meeting and I am sure your efforts were appreciated. It is nice to be out meeting people, but even nicer to be working from home where your cats are(and hubby too).
Sounds like organizing is right up your alley ;)

I'm glad you pulled off this mini conference without a hitch. You rock and I'm glad you can stay home with the kitties and hubby.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

Well done! I could have managed the cookies bit...

That sounds like a lot of work that not only rewarded you with some cool stuff, but also with connecting in person with your team - good stuff all around!

That sounds like a lot of hard work but you pulled it off without a hitch. It was nice of them to show their appreciation.

When I was working, I would arrange meetings like this. It's a LOT of work but SO rewarding when things go well. Sounds like you work with good people.

It is sure nice when your efforts are appreciated! I'm working a hybrid schedule now--3 days in office and 2 days at home. The cat sure miss me when I'm gone.
