So this happened:
We were in a meeting — six women, one man — and my supervisor said, “To each his own.” Without even thinking, I responded, somewhat amused, “You mean, ‘To each her own’.”
He laughed, and said, “You’re absolutely right!”
I feel I made an appropriate point, and I also feel that my boss handled it with humor and grace. Good on both of us!
Then this happened:
My girls had their “Buddy Lunch” yesterday, and they invited me, and Bella and Tadone. We all accepted, and I used some of my PTO to be able to attend.
And I stand by what I said. I like being a WOTHM — even if we didn’t need it for financial reasons, I would want to work outside the home. If we didn’t need me to for financial reasons, I’d like it better. I could find a position on my own terms.
I’ve been at this job long enough to have three weeks of vacation time, though. They don’t pay me to NOT take it. And they really don’t pay me enough to forgo special little things like Buddy Lunch with my children.
I felt good yesterday. It’s amazing what a new hair style, some sleep, and sunshine will do for a person.
How was your day?
