No, I don't mean that this will be my only post this month. I am still not quite sure what happened to August.
I started at my new job on Sept. 2. I was glad to start although I am nervous about taking the calls. We took our first ones today (as training reps) and I did the best out of my training class of 4. It is collections, and I didn't think I would enjoy it or be very good at it. But I am great on the phones and this is just another variant. I was also fortunate to have some good calls. There is 1 gal in my training class whom I cannot stand. The other 2 gals also cannot stand her, so I don't think it's just me. She appears to be fairly clueless and we're not entirely sure of how she managed to navigate the site to even apply for the job. One gal has been trying to help, and feels she is falling behind instead. Our trainer is aware of the situation, and will help out as she can.
I think I will do well at the job, we'll see how well I enjoy it, however. We'll see. On the upside, everyone there is very friendly and willing to help. It will also be nice, when I go to my regular shift, in that I will be able to carpool with the same gal I carpooled with at VanDykes. That will help cut down on the gas to drive 20 miles one way every day!!
Our puppy is enjoying his new home very much. The new owners have offered to let us come visit, which was really sweet!! Our older girl seemed to miss him but I think is enjoying being a "single child" again. It is definitely a lot quieter and a lot calmer. I miss him, but not the hyperactivity.
My son is doing well in school so far. He really seems to be enjoying himself. Hopefully things will stay on course when I get to my normal shift (12:30-9pm M-Th, 11:30a-7pm F and 8am-4:30pm alternating Saturdays). I'm a little concerned about his ability to stay on task. We'll see.
Things are okay with my spouse so far. Hopefully this will continue. No trips to the casinos, at any rate.
Hope all is well with all my readers!!
