Yes, I have had a job for about a month now. I'm still quite surprised that I continue to be employed. It has been an adjustment. Luckily, I have done library work before, so this job is not completely overwhelming. However, there is the little issue of learning the computer programs - for library cards, fines, holds, renews, and all that kind of stuff. I'm learning them, but I hope I don't exceed the normal learning time. That concerns me a little.
My other learning issue to getting used to a schedule. My schedule doesn't change much, but, on one day I go in at 11:00, and on another day I go in at 9:00. I got up ready to go in at 11:00. I like to saunter around in the mornings, drinking my coffee, wandering around in my p.j.s, taking my time, piddling around, doing nothing. But, when I looked at the calendar, I freaked out. NO! Today is my 9:00 day! YIKES!! The time is now 8:15! Holy moley! How did I mess up like that! I ran through the house shrieking, "I have to be at work in 45 minutes!" During my running and shrieking, I ran into the doorway. On both sides. That takes talent.
Then I yelled out to my family members, "What day is it????" They said, "Today is Tuesday. What is wrong with you?"
Oh. Whew. So today IS my 11:00 day. I calmed down, and rubbed both of my shoulders. Don't ask how I hit both sides. Must have ricocheted from one side to the other.
This is quite an adjustment for my poor, old brain. I hope I survive it.
Till next time,
