Today I am thankful for my job.
Sometimes I dread going to work. Sometimes it's not so bad and sometimes I even like it.
I have worked for the same company for over 7 years now. I started at the bottom of our department and I am now in a senior position. The pay is great (more than I'd make anywhere else without a college degree) and the benefits are really great (dental, health, 401K that they match, 3 weeks vacation a year..).
I'm even saying I'm thankful for my job when I've just come off of a 6 day, almost 50 hour work week and I have another 6 day week this week. Yep, OT is nice to have when you have bills to pay!
This job is also helping us to buy a house. I have steady, reliable income. You can't beat that.
