Thankful Thursday - Work Edition

Today I am thankful for my job.  

You guys mostly know me as a runner / momma, but by day I am a pharmacokineticist, which is a fancy way of saying I figure out the math behind medications.  I work for a company that does phase 1 / first in human studies for drugs so we can determine what dose of a med to give in different situations.  

Of course there are days when I question my path in life, but what I need to constantly remind myself is that I have a really good job. A job I should be (and am) thankful for.  Having the flexibility to make my own hours and work from home is just the beginning.  

My employer also: 

- Pays for my gym membership (and provides a gym on site)

- Pays for half of my Weight Watchers monthly membership

- Provides on site flu vaccines and yearly wellness screens

- Pays for race entry fees (they completely paid for me to run the Groundhog Run on Sunday)

- Provides a very well stocked first aid kit.  When I was pregnant, I survived off of the Tums (which ended up giving me a kidney stone, but that is a different story), and yesterday I used a band-aide to cover up my post-race collar bone chafe.

-Provides me with a new personal computer every three years - I have had my Mac for 1.5 years now and it is still going strong.  

-Provide me with a salary to provide for my family

Yesterday we also had an employee all inclusive get-a-way (to the building next door) where we had a huge party.  There was beach food,

lawn chairs, hammocks, fruity drinks, music, dancing, and black jack.

Guess where I was the whole time?  Well, after the food.  

Too bad it was fake money - I would have won big yesterday!

Whenever I get on the grass is greener train I am going to read this post again.  

Have a great day!
