Day 5

I am mentally exhausted right now but I'm going to be gone all weekend (at a scrapbooking retreat) and I didn't want anyone to think I was ignoring my blog.

Work is going really well. Like I said I'm exhausted but deep down I really am enjoying it. It amazes me that a position that is this perfect for me can just drop into my lap. I find myself pausing during the day and marvelling that even when I WANT to procrastinate, as is my nature and as is the habit I've built up over the last year, there actually tasks for me to do that I *enjoy* doing. And they are even more interesting then procrastinating. I don't know if that makes sense but it's a really neat feeling.

My co-workers are amazing. They are a great group of people. Very funny and relaxed but incredibly professional and every last single one of them is driven to accomplish the goals of the organiazation. It is so exciting to be surrounded by people that actually CARE!!!

I survived my first board conference call this morning. It was very, very interesting. This will be a fairly regular occurance so it was nice to get one under my belt. Of course I now have thirteen pages of notes to type up, and I will be out of the office at another meeting on Monday and we have a second call scheduled for Tuesday! I.n.s.a.n.e...in a good way :D

I also "decorated" my office. Brought my fountain, sand garden and some candles in. It's nice to make it feel a bit more homey and to have a conversation piece for people who walk in.

Back to my co-workers. I went out for lunch today with my boss and the two men in our office. The four of us had been involved in the conference call so it was wrap up from that. We had a blast! My boss and I razzed those two mercilessly. She and I have a similar sense of humour and it's more proof of how well we get a long. So. much. fun :)

The day isn't long enough to complete my tasks never mind blog. I do plan on keeping this up to date but don't be surprised if my entries aren't as frequent as they have been for the past few months.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sounds like you are settling in well to your new job. That is great! When you get time you will really have to update your blog name now.
