Today was my first day in a new position, and I think it went well. My new manager is a nice guy, very laid back and casual, which I love. I hate getting the boss that doesn’t grasp that not only are we all on salary, we’re also all owners and partners in the business. In other words, it’s to all of our advantage to make sure the work is performed efficiently and well, and correctly done the first time. This one actually said, flat out, that once I’ve shown that I know the ropes, he’s not going to be looking over my shoulder- work on my schedule, travel permitting, and get the job done, other than that he doesn’t much care when I come in, when I go to lunch, etc.
I’ve been lucky the last few bosses, that way, and I’m sure glad this one feels that way too- I guess after twenty-plus years with this company, I’ve shown that I’ll do what is expected of me!
Lynn and the kids are home now, which has filled the house with noise, and “stuff”. We got the car unloaded within a couple hours of their arrival, but a lot of it is still piled in the living room while it gets sorted and put away. Add to that, we’re in the middle of a three-way room exchange, and we have junk all over the place.
The advantage to this, of course, is that there’s noise and activity and life around, and I’m not likely to get depressed- the black thing will be really wise to stay away from here, with all the family home it’s likely to get hit in the rough-housing if it dares to stick a nose near me!
My niece might get to come and visit in a couple of weeks too, while my sister takes my nephew to school, and that’s always fun. She’s a great kid, the only bad part is that I’ll be working when she’s here, and so wont get to play with her until evening. Oh well, we’ll find time to do something fun, I’m sure.
Is this the silliest post ever? I think so, but wanted to write something, so you get a list of not-much-of-anything, because I can- and seeing that it’s my blog, oh well. Don’t read further if you don’t want to know too much about nothing!
