postheadericon All in a days work

                Today was supposed to be a relax day for me as this season I choose not to work on Sundays, however the big boss had other plans for us.  We had training today for a new contest that the company is rolling out which lasted 3 hours and then we had to call an emergency team meeting to roll out the plan to the rest of our team.  That meeting lasted just over an hour. 
              I was given the privilege of running this meeting for our team and I was NERVOUS!  I am not a good public speaker to begin with and then having 11 or so sets of not so happy eyes staring at you with the only thoughts running through their heads of what they could or should be at home doing was all the more frightening!  I thin the meeting went well, and my boss was there to back me up for the things I forgot.:)   
             I have to say I am very excited about training to become an office leader.  When I started with this company I never thought I would have the ability or potential to go places in the company and now in just two short years I am seeing that I do have the potential and I am going to go far in this company.  First stop Office Leader, Next stop District leader:)  While I am not sure how long it will take me to achieve all of my goals I am sure that I am on the right track. 
            If you or anyone you know is still in need of having their taxes prepared for this year please fell free to send them our way:)Photobucket

postheadericon Just The Beginning

                   To all who enter this is my first of many posts to come. I am looking so forward to joining the wonderful world of blogging with other moms.

                    Let me begin by telling you a little about me and my son. I am the proud mommy of an 11 year old young man who will shortly be turning 12 and has already long entered the world of preteen woes. My son entered middle school this year and jumped in with both feet. He joined the choir under my recommendation and within the first week wanted to quit. I was reluctant to allow him to change classes but agreed because I could not stand to see him miserable. I contacted his choir director and told her he would be transferring out but she said she would have none of that! She sat him and down asked him to stay for the first semester and see what he thought and after that if he was still unhappy she would let him go. As we came to the end of the first semester and I told him we needed to pick a new class he stated "Mom, I do not want to trade classes, I love Mrs. Smith and I want to be in choir all the way through school." I credit Mrs. Smith to being such a great teacher and motivator. My son has many off days or days I like to call "Teenage Tantrum Days" I know he is not an official teen and I thought that a boy would have less woes then a girl but I am soon finding that to be untrue. He has just as many as my sister and myself had as preteen/teenagers.

                      Myself, I work full-time preparing taxes and I love my job! I am also a full-time mom and wonder constantly when the pay comes for that job but then my son does something to warm my heart and I remember that is the kind of pay only a mom can receive. I do enjoy reading and wish I could find more time to do so. I enjoy cooking for my large family and having them all sit around my table. I am 1 of 5 children and I am sure to share more about my siblings as time goes on.

                     For now I must sign off, but rest assured I will be back soon. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out my blog. I look forward to the many years of blogging with everyone.
