I'm almost done with my second week at the new job. I starting to really, really like it. It takes an act of God to get commands changed when you work for the govt. but yesterday Rose and I did the sheets for our boss based on what she has in her system. Sheesh, what a job that was.
Rose had the day off today so I winged it. I still couldn't get in most systems but was able to do some things. My boss came out in the afternoon and asked me to call different DSL carriers. The whole VA is moving to new digs on three different floors in August. All the agencies are moving around. Voc Rehab is opening a job resourse lab so I had to find prices for DSL for the labs. They won't run off of our major system. Now, this was super fun. I got to surf the web and spend money that didn't belong to me.
I cannot believe the difference in atmospheres. Night and day. I'm not minding working everyday because I don't hate where I'm at. The day goes fast. The group down there meshes well and works as a team. I'm thinking God certainly knew what was coming up when I didn't get that job in January upstairs. I thank Him every day. Now, the biggest surprise is that Rose and I are probably going to get our own offices. Yikes! I can't believe it. Our boss said he thought we were. I went upstairs today to finish moving my stuff and one of the guys up there said something to me about having my own office when I move. He saw the floor plans. Whoa...ok...I'm waiting to see this before I believe it.
Onto MySpace. I had to join because I wanted to get inside Becky's blog. I automatically had a blog created when I joined with absolutely nothing in it. I think it was around Easter when Becky talked me into putting a pic of her and me on the profile page and I stuck some inside so she could save them and use them in hers. I had them in my journal. It was the day Megan moved and other pics that have all been in here.
I keep getting messages about new blogs daily...no biggie...until last week, "Jim" was asking to be one of my friends. Hmmm...of course, I had to check this out. ROLFMAO...Jim actually lives quite close to me. He is 59, partially disabled and stays at home while his wife works. Poor guy is lonely, loves photography and would like to meet "friends" to take nature hikes. Jim has many, many friends...all female; all ages and all leaving sexually explicit messages. Yeah, I bet he wants to take nature hikes and photograph wildlife. I deleted the invitation. Poor Jim is persistent. MySpace is still sending me messages that Jim would like an invitation to my blog. Hate to tell poor Jimbo but no way is that ever going to happen. Besides that, my blog is empty.
I mentioned this to my BF. Of course, he flipped out and thinks now that all the people in J-Land are using fictitious covers to try and meet/stalk people. I was cracking up and had to show him the difference between MySpace and J-Land. So, now I will filter what I tell my BF. He really has too much time on his hands.
So, now I'm getting ready for my trip to Ohio to meet Penny and go to the festival. I'm really excited about this. I plan to take plenty of pictures so be prepared. According to Mapquest, it's only 125 miles and 2 1/2 hrs. away.
Week #2 at work has been great. I'm hoping by the end of Week #3 I'll be processing some claims.
And, hey, it's almost Friday...........
HUGS & SMILES!!!!!!
