I think today has to be one of the best Monday’s I’ve had in a very long time. For starters we had a pretty good weekend… I even made cookies!
Yeah, not really a big deal usually, but this is the first time I’ve baked since Enzo was born. I’m not sure why I didn’t get around to it sooner… probably just busy and tired, but last night after we put Enzo to bed, I decided it was the perfect time to make cookies, and it felt good. I forgot how much I enjoyed making things from scratch.
That, however, isn’t why today has turned out so good. In a totally sudden and unexpected turn of events I was offered a different position in another department in the company where I work – one with more responsibilities and a larger paycheck. I was completely shocked and realized (thanks to Josh) that this is actually my first promotion… ever. I’ve never really been in positions that offered advancement, so this is really exciting for me. Don’t ask me what I’ll be doing… I didn’t exactly get the specifics, but from the sound of things, it’ll be a much more challenging position than the one I’m in now.
And now, because he’s adorable… Enzo. Josh had been playing video games and got up, so I decided it would be funny to put Enzo in his chair with the PS3 remote when Josh came back. Oh, I wish we could have gotten Enzo’s first smile when his daddy discovered him in his recliner – he was so excited and happy to be in on the game.
The look on his face in this picture is priceless, such determination 🙂
