An Enjoyable Friday Indeed

On May 19, 2009 I will have been in the credit union system for 25 years. 25 years! Where on Earth did that time go? How old does that make me sound? {As I started at 14 years of age, not too old really....ahhh....yeah....14 years old....about there.} As mentioned below, I am on holidays next week so it would appear that some little elves worked late last night to decorate my office! We had lots of food all day and I received many congratulations.

I have 'survived' many changes working in the financial institution over the 25 years, including:
  • 6 different credit unions
  • 5 different banking systems
  • 2 mergers
  • numerous amalgamations
  • loan rates from 2% to 27%
  • positions of: teller, loans steno, edp coordinator, file clerk, member service representative, accounting clerk, administration clerk, training and development officer, human resource analyst, recruitment and development specialist
  • 5 different offices in the same building in less then 4 years

Though my true 'dream' job would be working with animals, being an author, something more creative, I couldn't imagine working anywhere else than at the credit union. Especially in human resources. I think it was where I was meant to be. {Excuse me while I 'fly my flag'! Ha, ha!}

Next stop...retirement! {Ok...like I am MUCH too young for that yet!!!}

ps...cleaned my car tonight...and thought 'now I should take Catherine on a car ride' Sadly, I know it will be a wreak next time you happen to see it. Of course Bren said 'Trin...don't you take pride in anything......'
{insert eye roll here from one 'trin'}

i am laughing at Brendan's comment to you K regarding the car and keeping it clean...I laughed because my Brian used to say that to me {used to...he doesn't dare now!} us creative types we don't have as much time to always be cleaning because we are busy CREATING!
