New Post

Okay, I apologize insanely for my lack of posting. I was going to wait for pictures, but I'll just tell you about stuff and post pics later.

My new job has been going fantastic, more or less. I'm a little overwhelmed right now, just because my trainer (who is also the boss's daughter) is leaving next week. I'm not exactly sure if she's coming back, but the fact of the matter is that I'll be on my own. I prefer to work on my own, but there's so much to learn. I'm trying to become a sponge and soak it all in, but after a certain point in the day I somehow become a rock and most things just bounce right off.

I get to go to the post office and courthouse every morning and gather the mail. For some reason I like this. Don't ask me why. In six months I might hate it. But for now it just seems like a nice way to start the day.

They're actually looking for a new house to put the office in. I'm happy about that - not because I don't like the house we're in, but because moving to a new place means I can put things where they make sense to me and make the space my own. I've been trying to organize things a little right now, but it's difficult when you aren't sure where they go in the first place.

I think in a month or so, I'm going to be really comfortable and actually know what I'm doing. I can't wait.

Yesterday my boss slipped on the wood floor. She was wearing heels and they slipped. She was okay, but sat there for a few minutes. Later, she almost slipped again. I wouldn't have been wearing the heels anymore. And why do people sit there? To collect themselves? I'm one of the people who like to get up right away to show that I'm okay. I don't leap up by any means, but I try to get up soon. Unless I'm laughing. And then I have to "walk it off". If I'm in a lot of pain, I'll probably go somewhere else and check the damage and maybe cry if totally necessary... But it's usually not. Are you a sit-and-rest? Or a jump-up? Or a walk-it-off?

OOh, I gotta get ready for work! Here's to the last day with a trainer on my 5th day - Cheers!!!

So glad to hear your new job is going great! I am a sit and rester if I am alone, usually because I am so SHOCKED that the floor, the stairs, or whatever it is that I have tripped on has decided to be mean to me, that I have to sit there for a while. If I do it in front of people, I try to get up right away.

I get up right away and act like nothing happened. I might go somewhere private and check my wounds. Usually a week later I learn that I broke something.
