Working It

Thursday, November 6, 2008

Things have been a little hectic around here. That`s my excuse for not posting. I`ve been trying to clean up after the window installers, had company over on night, played hockey, worked two days, went to the naturopath, tried to meet my friend for coffee, helped with piano lessons, took one child to a specialist`s appointment, hosted a brunch for friends, painted window trim, and prepared and hosted a birthday dinner, all in the last 4 days!

Today I wanted to tell everyone how work is going. I`ve worked 4 days, 3 of which were at my desk. The fourth day was a seminar related to project management. Sadly, I haven`t done much work yet. I`ve spent a lot of time getting accounts activated, setting up access to various documents, and I even made one trip to the headquarters building to get my building pass but lacked the proper documentation. The person who will be showing me the work was too busy this week to show me what he needs. He just needs to give me a little bit of time, and I can help him lessen his workload!

I love being back at work. It feels good to be working for money again, and I even get undisturbed breaks! There are so many adults with whom to converse! I`ve been gone just over 3 years, but there are still some familiar faces and everyone is so friendly and helpful. It sounds a bit too good to be true, but it`s not.

One of the little perks of the job is that there is a free gym. There are nice leafy neighbourhoods on two sides of the building, making it ideal for lunchtime runs.

So far, my commute has been easy, as I`ve had the car and there hasn`t been much snow. I`ve been listening to Astrid and Veronika in the car and I`m on the last CD. It really makes the time go faster. It`s about 25 minutes each way. I`m leaving around 6:30 in the morning and getting home at least an hour before the nanny has to leave. That gives me time to change my clothes, start Mr. Boy`s homework with him, figure out what notes came home from school, and even make supper before the nanny leaves. All in all, it`s working out really well. And the nanny rocks.

I`m finding it a bit hard to sit at a desk all day, and I don`t have many clothes that fit right now, but these things will improve, I`m sure. I just joined GoodLife Fitness and I can`t wait to get started!

I'm glad you are enjoying work. It is a nice change. Sounds like life is crazy though - How was your game last night?
