Life as a Greenmonstr

Quilting and Other Facts of Life

First day

Today was the first day at my new job.  Well, sort of...I was in the building, but at orientation, which is about six hours of listening to people talk about policy, filling out forms, etc.  Tomorrow will really be the start of my job. 

As I was gathering my things in the car before going into the building, it occurred to me that I was going from one facility where most people knew me and I knew my way around like the back of my hand (by virtue of the fact that I had worked there for 30 years) to a place where I know virtually no one and have NO CLUE where I am going.  I had a moment of "holy cow, what am I doing?" but as soon as I was out of the car it was all good. 

The next few days are going to be very hectic with meeting everyone (and I am no good with names usually), going to meetings, going to training, and learning the systems.  However, on Saturday I am going to the Keepsake Quilting Tent Sale!  Our yearly pilgrimmage!  A nice reward for having a shiny new job!   I'm sure some of you will be there too!

I'm sure the new job is going well. I've been in that situation several times, but always fit right in after a few months. Made lots of friends, but still cannot always remember their names when I run into them.
