Backstory. I came on this trip right on the heels of finding out that my company may not survive as a going concern. After nearly 30 years in business, some short-sited decisions were made out of fear and soon we will relinquish our entire book of business to a potential- that's right, I said potential, NOT actual- competitor. Anyhoo, that's what I left in the middle of. And really there is SO much more to this asinine story, but it's not the point of this entry, so I'll skip it. Plus, I probably have said too much already. As my company's HR person, I know the perils of venting online...
The point of this entry is to say, "Holy shit, I just found out that while I was on vacation, I apparently got a promotion. That's right I am now a vice president of a company that may very well be out of business in a year. It's okay, you can laugh. I did. At the same time, I will also allow myself to feel proud of this accomplishment. I have worked hard for it and I feel especially proud as a woman and a late-bloomer. Go Faithie!
