a year...

I've made it! 1 year today!  I'm happy about that.  This part-time temporary position has lasted me longer than I thought {knock, knock...oh that's not wood...}.

It helped out a lot to conduct that little experiment on positive thinking back in February.  It "forced" me to think about all the good things that this job entailed.  I learned to appreciate it more.  I may still have my complaints, but who doesn't, right?

I still love, Love, LOVE that it's part-time.  Gives me much more time for myself and errands, etc.  Really not sure how much longer my boss is going to allow me to only work 3 days a week...he "threatens" to make me full-time every now and then, but I'm not sure they can afford all those added benefits for an additional employee - however, it does seem like things in the auto industry are starting to recover.  More of a possibility he will ask me to work 4 days.

The other day a recruiter called me on my cell and I answered it in front of my boss...not unusual since we share a cube.  I was awkward in my responses to her and he knew instantly that it was a recruiter on the other end of the line.  When the call ended, he had no issue asking all about it.  He was wondering if I was "looking" for full-time.  I told him that I think I have it pretty good here and that if full-time is something that is required, I'm willing to do it...but I do like my part-time-ness...

Glad to hear it, and I hope things stay the same for as long as it works out for you.
