Sunny side up

With all of the gloom and the doom that I paint my job with, I sometimes forget about the people I work with.

The caring and hard-working and interesting and diverse and funny and genuinely enjoyable people who I work with.

(With the exception of my boss, Ms. Email Snoop, of course.)

When I came in this morning, two of my coworkers were decorating my desk. The balloons came at 10:00 am, with the part-time staff who was coming in for her shift. Not long after, a former employee and her son came in to visit because they knew it was my birthday. And then there was an enormous, sinfully delicious chocolate cake. Complete with candles and singing.

I'm lucky to have a group of people who like me and appreciate me enough to acknowledge my birthday at all.

It was so nice. The whole day was lovely.

And the best present was from my boss: she took today off.
