Is it Monday already?


So I made it through the first week of work.  It wasn't nearly as overwhelming as I expected it to be.  Still, I feel completely lost.  I'm learning to navigate the computer system better now but without help I still have no clue what the next step is, what I should be looking at and for specifically, and what it all means.  I tried writing the steps down but was discouraged to do so.  "You'll be doing it so often that you won't even need your notes, it'll just come naturally!"  Maybe so, but I feel like I need my notes until then.   They did give us screen shots of the screens, so that's nice.

Thankfully, my coworkers have all been very nice.  There are 13 newbies and we're all learning together.  I wonder if they feel as lost as I do, but I haven't asked.  We have one more week of training before we're out on our own.  I felt really good about everything as I drove home Friday evening, but then I had to weekend to think and I'm nervous to go back.  There is absolutely no way I'm ready to be out on my own yet.  I'm just praying that it all starts to sink in before the end of the week.  

I hope everyone who got hit by the nasty blizzard over the weekend is safe!

I'll try to be around sometime this week to visit everyone.  I should have done it over the weekend.  Instead, I felt antsy and colored a lot to relax.  I'm used to having either too much free time or absolutely none at all and had no idea what to do with myself over the weekend.   Here's a little bit of my work.

Half my job is training people on my company's instruments. I tell them it's not that hard, but to freely take notes, as it helps till it's second nature. I know I'm a copious note taker when I get trained on something new. Hunkered down for the storm with the pups in front of the fireplace :) Coloring is relaxing and therapy at the same time :)

Hey Wylde One!
Wow, I'm so proud of you for your new job! I know you'll continue to do well. Mom says to tell you working for a State can be a great thing...crossing paws you like it and can get on full time/permanent. (I think you said it's a State job)

BTW: Barking hello to Chico and Shiver.
BTW again: My crabby girls featured you on our bloggie today! :)

Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Furiend

Glad that work is going well and you are settling in. It always takes a while and I guarantee all the people who started with your feel exactly the same.
Love the colouring pages, the bird is going to be beautiful when it is finished!

I do think coloring would be a nice way to relax. Me, I just try and eat the crayons. Best to you in your new job.
