Alright I made it home in one piece. The roads are awful out there so I'm really glad I don't have to pick up my daughter from daycare either. My boss was super okay with me working from home. AND. Even better. At the end of the conversation she asked if I wanted to supervise interns! The lady I'm replacing has a couple that report to her but my bosses weren't sure who they were going to to give the interns to. I guess they want it to be me! Super nervous because 1) I'm already learning a new job, b) I have anxiety so more stress isn't the best idea, and finally I really, really want to do a good job.
So basically despite my maternity leave, despite disclosing a mental illness, despite feeling like I haven't been on my game since I got back, my employer still seems to be grooming me for a future leadership position. This would make sense since the tax department is historically young and turnover is fairly high. I imagine they are trying to keep some of us younger people interested in sticking around and not taking our experience elsewhere. I've never had formal leadership experience before so I'm really excited to be able to add this to my resume.
