Thanks to Lisa Jo for sending me the above graphic. I won't be counting down every day forever that I work at my new job. I mean this is a good thing; just a very, very different thing right now.
I woke up this morning down in the dumps because it dawned on me that it was Tues and no more free Tues nights. Now, Chris, get a life. It's a job. More people work five days a week than not.
My PC was and still is not moved. My old cubicle looks like a shrine to me; albeit one big mess of a shrine outside of it. No one has touched or done a thing since I left.
I felt a little like a fish out of water because I just don't know what or how to fill my time when I'm clueless. So I moped a bit although no one would ever have known. I wandered aimlessly at lunch. What a sad sack I was letting myself become.
Rose takes a late lunch so left her computer up and told me to start messing with stuff...lol...a dangerous thing but it was fun to just play around with the systems but not save anything.
When she got back, she put me at the keyboard and let me input the awards. I cracked us up because I was a total mess. It looks so easy when you're shadowing someone. I thought I could do it in a heartbeat. Not even close. Needless to say, I'm totally impressed with what Rose has accomplished in two years. She didn't have nearly the experience I had plus no one to speak of to train her. We were howling because she leaves for vacation June 30th through the week of the 4th of July.
Tomorrow and Thurs we have training upstairs on the system I was using. We have to share a computer because, of course, they didn't provide enough so guess who gets to play around again...moi.
Truthfully, after the newness wears off, I think I am really going to love this job. 3:30 rolls around quickly and then it's time to start closing things up for me. I would usually have 2 hrs left.
Tonight I was home at 5:15. My BF met me at the bus stop and almost passed out. I had my peasant outfit on. I haven't been dressed like that for work in years. He couldn't quit staring at me and was all "gaga eyed." Good for the ego.
We had to search for the holes in my pool liner and I had to drain my pond and clean it. It's also trash night. So, I'm not going to get around tonight to visit journals. I will have to do that tomorrow night. I haven't forgotten any of you....I'll skip an entry tomorrow so I can journal hop.
Love you all and can't thank you enough for your supportive comments...it's really helped so much.
(If you want a siggy like this, let me know. It may take a day or two but I'll get it to you.)
