The other day, I was talking with some co-workers when one asked me the infamous question. Will I be returning to the company after the baby is born. I was thoughtful and I said probably. With my Husband not working the chances of my being able to stay at home are doubtful. She corrected herself and explained she didn’t mean will I go back to work, but will I come back to our work or look for something else during my time off.
I looked at her funny and said ‘of course I will, I love my job’. This set off some sort of discussion on how could I possibly love such a thing.
But see, I do love my job. Sure there’s things about it that I can’t stand and there’s days when it drives me nuts. But, I’ve learnt so much over the past 10 months I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. And, from someone who failed grade 11 math twice and is now in the position of Accounts Payable, that sure is saying a lot.
I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else then my company. The people are amazing, it’s the first place I’ve ever worked where I truly have friends, and my job keeps me interested and constantly learning something new. The only exception to the rule is being a stay at home Mom. Otherwise, there isn’t anything else or any other place I could see myself working at.
I’m not the only one out there like this, am I?
