Just a bunch of randomness...

Work is going well.  I like it so far.  It's challenging because I have to stop and think about every single step and wonder if I'm doing it right. My coworkers are nice for the most part.  I saw a couple of them who were insensitive when talking about a different coworker who is going through a really difficult situation.  I don't think it was insensitivity actually, it seems more like they lacked empathy.  It was disappointing to see, but now I know not to confide in those two coworkers.  There were 13 of us hired, 12 women and 1 guy.  Almost none of the women actually need to work, most of them just want something to do.  Must be nice to not have to work!  Training ended Friday so we're on our own from this point forward.

I realized I haven't given a Chico update lately.  He's doing well.  He's put on weight from the steroids.  He was eating a lot for awhile there, which the vet said to expect.  He's slowed down now though which is good, he's not eating me out of house and home anymore.  The biggest change I've noticed in him is that he doesn't cuddle with me as much anymore.  He used to love to have me hold him close and he'd put his head on my shoulder while he napped and snored loudly.  He used to crawl under the covers at night and curl up next to me.  We do still cuddle, just not as much and for not as long.

Shiver is good too.  He's adjusted to my going back to work much quicker than I expected him to.  He's an anxious chi and any changes to his life upset him.  While he isn't happy that I have to leave him every morning, he doesn't cry or make me feel guilty about leaving him.

Yesterday Kathy G blogged about a website where you can create your very own virtual snowflake.  It sounded like something I needed to try, so off I went.  It's easy and only takes a few seconds.  Here's mine.  I actually made several different flakes, these one were my favorites.  It's fun to make them very detailed or even hardly detailed at all.

I'm glad to hear that Chico is doing well. I'm glad he's put on weight, but I'm also glad that his appetite has settled back down. I've had to give some of my pets steroids in the past for various reasons, and I know exactly what you're talking about with that crazy appetite - one of my kitties was on a stint of steroids for a skin flareup and just couldn't get enough food!

I'm sure you're doing great at your new job. Taking your time while still learning the ropes is perfectly normal and perfectly fine. It's a shame to hear that there are some not so considerate coworkers; the sad part is that it seems like every work place has at least one or two of those. At least you know to steer clear of them.

Those snowflakes look great! I'm definitely going to have to give that site a try. Have a wonderful week!

Glad work is going well, I'm sure you will be fine on your own. That is the only thing about offices, they thrive on gossip and some people are worse than others.
That's great that Chico is doing so well, perhaps the steroids make him feel too warm to cuddle?
Love your virtual snowflake, that is so pretty!

Glad you like the job. It always seems like there are a couple of bad apples at a job.

Still sending you and Chico lots of love and support and good wishes.

Thanks for the shout out. Your snowflakes are awesome, and SO much more detailed than mine! Glad to hear that Chico is doing better.

I am glad that you are enjoying your job. Everyplace has it's meanies and it is best to stay away from them and not give them any ammunition to use on you.

I work in the field, and can't say I miss the water cooler gossip. Glad it's going well overall. Yay, for Chico doing well. Less snuggling is not a good side-effect :(
