HI! You can just ignore that last post and the link to the site feed on the right. Just for now. It's something new that I'm trying to figure out. I'll let you know when I do :)

Sorry it's been so long since my last real post I've been very busy with work and all. Speaking of work, things are going really good. This past Friday was my first day training in my new Dept. I also trained yesterday. Then today my trainer and another girl in the dept. said that they thought I was ready to be on my own today. I did pretty good. Not too many things I had questions on and I moved right along on my report. I only got a few incoming calls so that helped too. I think after this week I should be all set. I like things so far.

I would like to say thank you to Bamboo2 for her very thoughtful gift on Friday. She saw that I had Evanescence's CD on my wishlist so she got it for me. Then she had a very nice note on the inside. Now, this isn't why I put up my wishlist, but thank you very much! It was very nice of you.

Hello, this is just a test post to test the site feed. Thanks!

Well, week 2 is over and week 3 is about to begin at my new job. So far things are still going pretty good. Another one of the trainees has left. She quit then came back and is now going to be in Order Entry instead of Customer Service. There is a lot of stuff to learn in a very short period of time. So now we are down to two. They wanted four. I don't know if they are going to try to hire more after they are done training us or not, I guess we will see.

Also I'd just like to say how much I like the show Alias. It is one of the best shows on TV. I don't have time right now, but I will soon. I just thought I'd throw it in right after I finished watching this weeks episode.

Hello again,

Well, my job is going really good. I've gotten 90%+ on all my tests. The trainer told me today that she is really happy with how I'm catching on and taking in all the info. Out of the three of us training, I'm the only one who hasn't had to retake a test. The trainer talked to me about moving to the Pic/Freeze/Move section which would give me more to do and the person I was shadowing today said they were thinking about hiring one of us for over there. It also means more money once they hire me from Express, the temp agency I'm with. So hopefully things keep going well there. (knock on wood)

The power went out tonight around 8pm. It was 14 degrees F out, so we got a little worried that if it stayed out for long then we would have to go elsewhere because out furnace runs half on electricity. But it was only out until 8:45pm so we were ok. We only lost 2 degrees inside. Not too bad.

This week has gone by very fast so far.

Oh one last thing. I just thought I'd send you to my favorite Blog(other than mine that is). It's, big surprise here, Alton Brown's Blog. He recently said that he was going to try to update it at least once a week, which is a good thing. I like to hear what he has to say about the food industry, his show, and many other things. Give it a look sometime.

Can I get a What, What!?!

Now, I know that most of you reading this don't care about this, but I just thought I'd post it telling you that I have put up my wish list online. Now my Mom can stop begging me for it. My Wish List


It took me a little while but I finally made my list the same style as this page. Now it looks a little more seamless.

Wow, it has been a long week. There is a lot to learn at my new job. I was planning to post after my first day on Monday but I was pretty tired then I had to study for a test that I was going to have on Wed. Yes, that's right I had a test, and then I had another today too. I have two weeks of training which includes classes and a 400+ page book to learn. Plus, we have to take tests throughout and you have to get an 85% to pass. I think once I get through the training period, I will like the job. It is a lot to take in all at once but once I get it down it will come like second knowledge. I get the whole weekend off this week and next so that's pretty good.

Get heavy on with digging your ditch.

Well, I start my new job tomorrow. It should be fun, I am glad to get back into the workplace. My 3+ month vacation is finally over. Now I can finally start paying my bills again and maybe even buy something at Applebees soon. I should get to bed, I want to get a lot of sleep so I'm not tired at work tomorrow. I'll fill you in on my first day tomorrow.

Work like you don't have to, love like you've never been hurt, and sing like your in the shower.
