My wonderful blogging buddies

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the great ideas. I was going to try to answer them all in one post and then I thought "Uh hello, don't you want to spread out all these great ideas over several posts" And I said to myself "Uh yeah...like duh" I often talk to myself like that. So in totally random order because I love all my BB's (blogging buddies) the same, I will answer these great questions starting with............

From BB Thalia she asks "How is the new job going?"

Well, I've been at my new job now 3 1/2 months so the learning curve is starting to decline a bit. I'm starting to actually understand some of the things that I'm saying/doing.

I do like that there are so many neat stores downtown and I've enjoyed eating lots of new kinds of food. I still feel like a fish out of water and I hope that I always feel that way. I don't want to become one of the people who walk to fast with their head down and never acknowledge anyone else is around. I don't want to forget my manners and not hold a door open if given an opportunity. I want to smile at people. I want to show kindness.

I get along well with my coworkers but we have very little in common. I guess I've always had jobs that were like a little family and think this job is just going to be a job and that is okay.

They keep me really busy and it's getting busier everyday. I met with my boss the other day and he thought things were going very well.

I appreciate the flexibility in this job. I am able to work from home when necessary and my hours are very flexible. All they care about is that you get the job done. They actually treat you like a professional...gasp, imagine that.

Thanks for the question Thalia.

I love that you talk to yourself--is there anyone who doesn't???

I'm glad you are enjoying the job. It's always scary when we start a new job, but it's so fun when you look back and see everything you learned.

I'm so glad that you are enjoying your job! And working from home when you need to? That is AWESOME!!!
Not to add to the questions, but what is your favorite new food that you've tried? I'm just curious :D

I love that you count shopping and eating as benefits of the new job!

Maybe once you've been there longer, the whole community of the workplace will come together more.

That level of flexibility sounds so lovely! And I miss downtown soooo much! =)

I LOVE that you talk to yourself like that! I do the same thing all the time, and my family members will walk by and give me strange looks, tee hee! ;)

That was a great question, and I enjoyed reading your answer! This is really going to make for some fun posts! :)

Flexibility would be imperative if I ever went back to work full-time. Maybe the family community will grow with time! I remember not clicking with my co-workers but by the end, we were often tight.
