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.

that's really wonderful to have that kind of support and recognition from a supervisor. Congrats on the great work!

Did he offer you a raise for adding more responsibilities to your job description. Since you are now cross trained you are more beneficial to the company and if the AP person decides not to return back to work you will be stuck in a position without the additional pay.

All that aside great work!

See, I thought about this. Honestly though, before I started doing AP work I was hardly working. There was so little for me to do there were days that I would do absolutely nothing. I can't tell them I want a raise for actually doing something throughout the day. Plus, I was hired to help everyone else, I concider this helping . . . if my supervisor was to come to me and say that I'd be helping out with AP from now on, even when this girl comes back, then I would ask for a raise because my job discription would have been altered. Make sense?

Of course, if I don't get a nice yearly raise I will have a problem. :-P

Totally understand. Having accounting experience is always a good thing. It could help in getting a good vet job too.
