In other news . . .

Today I came into work as usual when my boss decided to call me into his office. I knew, just from the tone that is wasn't anything to worry about. He told me to grab a pen and some paper so I figured he was going to give me a project to do.

Come to find out, I was right. The project won't be too difficult and it's one of those things that I'll just be doing when I have nothing else to do. Cool.

Another interesting thing is he talked to me about filling in for the AP girl when she is out on maternity leave. I have been training for this for a couple months now so this was nothing new, but he went on to tell me that I was doing a really great job, and that he knows that I didn't sign on for this when I was hired, and he really appreciates everything I've been doing. He also told me that we are both making promises to eachother:

My promise: to just do what I've been doing and to hang in there. Try to organize the files on my down time and come to him if I have any problems.

His promise: as soon as my co-worker gets back from maternity leave, everything will be lifted off of my shoulders again. He said that she was hired to do the AP work, and he knows that. He understands how hard it is to work all day and then go to school at night and he believes in what I am doing. He asked me to just hang in there because in the long run, it won't be too long from now (she'll probably be back mid-october) and then after that, I won't be doing any of this anymore.

All in all, a pretty pleasant way to start the work day. It was just nice to be recognized, that he knows I am trying to do something I have never done before, that it is difficult to go to work and school, and that I am doing a really good job and he has no complaints.

*deep sigh* I can relax a little now, even though I have a pile of invoices I have to pay and enter in the computer, but in the end, I'll just do what I am supposed to do and get on with it.
