Tiptoe Through The Tulips

In a previous post I suggested I might have shot my foot off by telling my supervisor that I was not willing to work outside of my current job description and towards a promotion that was not on the horizon (I have been on this "work the job you want" plan for almost two years!).

Yesterday the director of my department let me know she was heavily advocating for my promotion and "changes were coming" although she could not make an offer yet.  She also gave me this beautiful tulip plant and the card which read, "Singular Desire, Sometimes it's nice to know you are appreciated - I do appreciate you! Warmly, Boss Lady".


  1. Well, whaddya know? Sometimes it pays to speak up for yourself!

    Also, if I haven't mentioned it before, I'm so glad you've started blogging again. You've been missed. :)

  2. Thank you for your comment on my blog. It meant a great deal to me. Hoping that things look up with your job very soon. The tulips are beautiful!

  3. Good for you! Stick-up for yourself!

  4. Very thoughtful! It's always good to be appreciated.
