Work functions and an award

So today I went to a luncheon for my banks region for a "Best of the Best." I was being recognized for most bankcard products being sold in the region. I feel like I do very good job at my position and I get along with my boss very well as mentioned in previous blogs. One thing I don't really feel comfortable with is work functions. I don't really like them. I don't feel like the 2 branches that i go between gets enough recognition for the job we do in the area we are in so when I see other people being rewarded because of course they are going to have higher volume or more sales in higher class areas I get real annoyed. Plus, the guys that work for the bank usually are D-Bags. We (myself and another girl that I used to work with) coined the phrase bank boys. Not all the guys are like this, ie: my husband, but most of them are. And of course at the lunch I was surrounded by them. So annoying! But what made the whole ordeal worthwhile was when the Regional Manager was talking about my award and my numbers that I had for the year I could hear people going "wow". It just made me feel good and then I went right back to my seat and rolled my eyes at the other recipients! I am such a good sport huh?!?! So now that I am done with that I am going straight into the award that I won!

So I received an award from Walking In A Dream.The rules for this award are as follows:
Be sure to post the award on your page. (Check)

1) Admit that ONE thing you feel awful about involving being a mom. Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are NO LONGER allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom!
2) To remind yourself that you ARE a good mom, list SEVEN things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you. These are the things to remind yourself of EVERY DAY that you rock!
3)Send this to FIVE other Moms of the Year that deserve forgiveness and a reminder that they, too, are the best moms they can be!!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you!"

So here goes:

1)One thing I hate about me being a mom is I spank the monkey (not in the perverted way, get your heads out of the gutter!) The monkey being little man. I am not against spanking, but I am against hitting in anger. I don't do this but sometimes I feel bad because he is just 2 and can't always control everything. And then of course when he hits me I spank him. That kind of defeats the purpose right. I don't know. Maybe I'm just a jerk.

2) Seven things I like about being a mom or like doing with my baby

  • Going to the park. Just seeing his smiling face when he is swinging or going down the slide makes me smile!

  • Hearing him talk and form sentences makes me happy because he is so smart! And I can say that because I'm his mom!

  • My little monkey is so polite! He says please and thank you and correctly. It cracks me up. What 2-year-old does that? So funny!

  • I love taking him to museums, things that enrich him, etc. I don't really remember doing that as a kid and I want him to be a learned person.

  • As much as I don't like little boy clothes because they just don't have near as much selection as they do for little girls, my boy is stylin! He just got a new pair of Pumas and he rocks them like a cool kid! Love it!

  • Just cuddling with him makes me happy! He is so soft and cuddly. It's like having a life-size teddy bear to lay with!

  • Just his love of sports makes me happy because I love sports and that will be one more thing we can do together as a family as he gets older. I can't wait!

WOOO HOOO! You go, you Bad ass banker chic you!!!

And I'm not really that big on work functions either. When my boss had my project roll out at an event, I was SO glad that it was at an event that I was NOT required to attend. I was proud of my job, but I don't need to be paraded in front of 100 people and talk about it...

I'd much rather just get complimentary emails for a week afterwards... lol

And hey, don't feel bad, I spank my kids too. And I agree, not to hit in anger, which is sometimes REALLY hard to control. I sometimes have to just leave the room and go smoke or something to calm myself down before I can go back in around them, but it helps to keep your anger in check...
