New Job

So I'm sure everyone is wondering "Where has Tanya been?" "Does she hate me?" "Has she quit reading my blog?" "I haven't gotten a comment from her in forever!" None of those are true. I just got a new job. I'm still at the same company, but in a different department.

Last week, was my first week, and it was pretty crazy. I spend the mornings at my old job, while one of my co-workers was on vacation. Then I spend the afternoon training in the new department. It meant I was working some pretty long days. If that wasn't enough, I'm involved in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, here in St. Louis and I'm in charge of keeping things organized in my building.

So far things are going okay. They use so much jargon and have so many acronyms that half the time, I have no idea what they are talking about. I'm sure that will get better with time, but for now, I'm guessing at what they mean. I'm sure in a couple weeks things will get better and I won't walk around with a lost look on my face.

As far as my blog reading / commenting goes, I'll get there. Because I really don't want to miss out on everyone's fun posts.

So you just shake your head "Uh-Huh!" and "YEP!" every time they throw out some of that funky jargon! It's like how a baby learns to talk! You'll figure it all out!

OFf to read your earthquake post now!

OOoh! Congrats on the new job...hopefully the long days will be done soon, huh? So I guess this means no more 'fake student' installments for a while?

We do always look forward to your comments! ;)

Congrats on the new job!! Godd luck catching on to the new jargon! I'm sure in no time at all you'll be throwing around acronyms, too.

I'm entirely too far behind on most of my blog reading too, so this is a very belated congrats on your new job!
