I have to send a list of accomplishments to my boss each year. I sent mine tonight with the following note attached:
"I know it’s late – if you don’t use it that’s ok, but I wanted to try to get something to you in case you need it.
I would like to add that this year I lost my Daddy, I lost my friend Randy (ok that was last year but close enough to this year to count), , my first niece was born and was in the NICU for a month, I lost my boss, I lived through the fear of getting a crappy boss, (I ended up getting a great one ;) ), I decided to move in 2-5 years but was offered a transfer quickly, I found a tenant for my Baton Rouge house, I bought a house in Ocean Springs, I lived through the residential lending process, I almost lost the house and ended up living in my car but the deal went through at the last minute, I had my gall bladder removed, I sprained my ankle, my husband had a mass removed from his neck because 3 doctors couldn’t figure out what it was (it turned out to be nothing bad), I had 2 dogs at the LSU vet school at two different times, (one in ICU)………..and I still only ended up taking about 1.5 xanax altogether.
In retrospect, I think maybe I should have taken MORE."
