Okay, so I’m not one to toot my own horn but I’m going to anyway. On Tuesday, I was notified that I had been nominated for and selected to receive an Infinite Mile Award at the Institute where I work. When I got the letter, I was all “Cool, l’il ol’ me got an Infinite Mile Award!” and I went about my usual business.

I had figured that the “big boss” had nominated me as he told me he had done so last year (but I wasn’t selected). In talking with “someone” yesterday (I could tell you who but then I’d have to kill you), I learned that it was actually someone on the administrative team in the Dean’s office that had done it. Now, I was all “Wow! All this time I’ve been trying to figure out how I fit in with this administrative team and now I know. Woohoo!”

Somehow, this just made the award more of an honor. Quoting the letter, it states (in part):

“You have been recognized as an outstanding contributor within the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education…. This award is not given lightly; you have reason to be proud of your accomplishments…”

Hee! L’il ol’ me got an Infinite Mile Award!

Not a bad way to end the week before you’re going on vacation! Woohoo! I’m going on vacation!
