The federal fiscal year is over. I made it through my two years of being a probationary employee – now I’m a full-fledged federal employee. I passed my certification exam last month and I applied to work from home.
I have mixed feelings about working from home, I love my co-workers, I love going out to lunch with my coworkers, I love going to the on-site gym. I love that I can go up and down the halls and ask “Hey, do you think when they use the word “bonded” that it just means covalent bonds or do you think it includes Van der Waals forces and hydrogen bonding too?” However, I’ve been eating up sick time and vacation time like crazy from doctor appointments/school appointments and various things, I will be happy to be able to just shift my hours a little bit to actually use vacation time for vacation and to see the kiddos a bit more… Also, I think it will help relax the household a little more, I’ll be able to do some more errands during the week, like going to Costo.
