I'm back to working normal hours, which we are adjusting to 8 am to 4:30 pm, so shifting a half-hour earlier but later than I have been coming in lately.
I'm happy with my office, and I've got it set up quite nicely, with lots of plants:
|Succulents in the window with pretty stones arranged around them.|
|Blooms on the succulents.|
|This is the orchid I got at the Bluegrass Orchid Society's meeting, plus the sign I had at my old desk.|
|My peace lily. I think I have to move it; it looks cramped.|
|An orchid that's been blooming since February, plus an African violet on the desk.|
|An orchid reblooming on the left, its counterpart, which is peach, but resting, and ivy in the middle.|
|A lovely bunch of peonies I got at Kroger.|
|My new title and sign to my office.|
I've made contact with several people at the University of Kentucky and corporate that will be of assistance, and I had some training from a liaison from UK yesterday regarding a software package I need for my job since I get authorizations for UK surgeries for our patients that have out-of-state Medicaid plans. The funny thing is to get access I had to have an account with UK and once they give you a computer account it's for life, as mine is based on one I got in 1985 as a student in a computer science class that has my old initials in it. :)
Here is my agenda for today:
Get insulin I've been out of for 24 hours Caffeinate and eat breakfast Work on game notes for our Call of Cthulhu game Shower and get ready - I look a mess Go see Incredibles 2 with friends!!! With free tickets from my hoard of employee appreciation tickets[I'm using 3 and I'll still have 5--shows how often I go to the movies] Check on an ill friend and his mother Dust two shelves in the bedroom.
- Move some files on the computer for YKWIA [we're going to do that tomorrow; I'm tired and hurting]
- Do more laundry tonight or tomorrow morning [again, tomorrow]
PS They realised that there was no way I could cover for the Physical Therapy secretary's maternity leave and do the new job, so I'm in my office full time now. New people have been hired in the department for my old job and another checkout position. One of my co-workers moved into the specialist position I was hired for before the other person left, and then another co=worker moved into hers. They're still working with headquarters to get my job official, the new pay rate, etc., as it was such a quick transition. I'm hoping that's just a mere formality, as everyone else has taken the other positions. :) But I should know for sure next week.
