Snow, Grammy's, work etc
Made it through the first full week at work after the training. It's a bit weird having an actual caseload and files of my own. I know I am being eased into this but it's definitely still a bit overwhelming at first and an adjustment period. I helps that I truly enjoy the field and the company overall. I am a perfectionist at heart though so not knowing everything and having all the answers can be a struggle for me. I had been at my old job for 14 years so I had encountered most questions and scenarios and nothing all that new or different could really be thrown at me. This is a different and new experience and I just need to be patient with myself, which isn't always my strong suit. Well, next week is a new week so we will see how it goes.
Thursday we had the first big snow storm of the season (we have had smaller storms but nothing too significant), dumping about 14 inches of snow on us. I was lucky that I was able to work from home and didn't have to venture out. Definitely a plus.
Had some more snow over the weekend but hopefully everything should be ok for the morning so I can get into work without an issue. Ugh, I am so over winter. I really am.
Had a relaxing weekend and slept in both days which was really nice. Yesterday we went for lunch at 121 in Oxford and today we met up with friends at Square 1 for lunch. Then caught up on a few shows we had on TiVo and are now watching the Grammy's. Nice relaxing night.
Let's see what next week brings. I should be meeting a friend for lunch on Tuesday. Tuesday is also Valentine's Day. I have to close that day (work till 6) so not sure what we are doing yet for dinner. Friday, Feb. 10, was our wedding anniversary (16 years - so crazy!!) and we had a nice dinner at Rizzuto's. Next weekend on Saturday (Feb 18) we are going to see "The Book of Mormon" on Broadway for Mike's birthday. Should be a lot of fun.
