Monday, I spent all day on conference calls, and setting up my new computer – an act I repeated on Friday when my “real” computer came in…which has freakin’ Windows VISTA on it.
***silent scream of disgust and frustration***
In five short days, I’ve crossed all sorts of invisible boundaries, paved some new roads, and cut cross-country to some old ones – and all that's happened within the new company. And all I did was show up! I've decided this week I'm going to walk quietly and just be an observer...you know - watch, learn and listen. It’s been quite an adventure…but I’ll tell you, not once has my phone sounded off in the middle of the night! Phones ringing all night long happened often at my old job – when you’re working in an industry that never goes to sleep, stuff like that happens. Who knows, I might recover my life!
MLH and I were treated to supper one night, and I, yet another (MLH was out of town). We had lots of fun. Pretty heady stuff, that, being entertained. Usually it’s us treating customers…now, “we is one”! There will still be plenty of instances where we entertain clients, but still, it’s a refreshing change.
Tomorrow, I leave for Houston…and I’ll be gone a week. I’ll keep you posted, Houston always generates lots of blog fodder for me. It would probably help if I could figure out how to travel the crazy Beltway. (Karen - are we going to hook up?)
