I was hoping to say that my first week of work went without a glich. Well, work-wise, I guess I can say that. But the 45-minute drive presented the glich this week.
Day 1, I met the temp that I am replacing. She has been there for 9 months and came on board with no pass-down, no training, nothing. She knows what it was like when she started, so she is trying to make it a bit easier for me.
Day 2, 10 minutes away from the house, two doe ran in front of my car. One didn’t make it to the other side of the road. And our Ford Focus didn’t make it very far after that either. It is in the shop being repaired, so it will get its second life. I think the deer went home with someone and made a nice meal. I felt badly and was a little shaken up afterwards, but there isn’t much I could do about it. With our oldest son buying his first car, we actually have an extra car now that he isn’t driving the Ford. But for now I am driving our gas-guzzling Sequoia to work. It is actually my car, but we decided that with that long of a drive to work, that the Ford would be better to drive. Except it’s not as tough with the deer.
The rest of my week went well, learning new things. The best part of it all is that I get a 3-day weekend through the summer. I work an hour longer each day, but having Friday’s off is awesome!
