I survived!!!

No, it really wasn't that bad. I actually had a good day...I think, lol.

My job is in the AP Section of the Finance & Risk Department of our County. I have never worked for the government, so this is "an experience". I have "my own" cubicle and a fairly quiet office of 5 others. The end of fiscal is this month, and I was told pre-employment that if chosen, I would be working all Saturdays of July (but I do get overtime!). I bit off a big nut, huh! Might as well see how ugly it gets, then enjoy the quieter time.

I was able to "be green" and take the Express bus to town, I get a pass for the entire month for $10. It's about 15 miles one way and you do have to pay for parking, so this is a win-win situation I dare say! The bluework goes with me in the morning for sure. I missed it at lunchtime, the first day of work lunch is always terribly akward.

Thank you for all your well wishes. My mouth is healing, I stayed pretty much "on" my ibuprophen which worked like a charm. Good thing they didn't do a specimin test, I have ALOT of drugs in my system, lol. Just a little jaw pain left, that's to be expected. What a crazy few days I've had.

Have a great "rest of the week", I'll be checking in really early in the AM, and again just before bed each day to make sure y'all are behaving!

Oh, and I strongly recommend you find out what Nadine's up to, she's got something up her sleeve! www.sewingnana.blogspot.com

Your co-workers will be amazed to see how much more attractive you become after they have worked with you for a while.

So it could have been worse, right? You could have come swimsuit shopping with me. Sounds like pain meds, new job and all, you had more fun than I did.

So you survived the first day, after that it will only get better.

It is good to hear you are doing well. First day on a new job is always scarry.

I am the queen of root canals. I have had six of them. Two I had without any pain meds.

I'm glad you're feeling better, best wishes for productive lunches in the future. Time spent with needle and thread is never awkward. Good luck with the new job... it sounds interesting.

Are you still surviving the job? How about your dental treatment? I hope things are going well for you!

Glad to hear you survived the first day of work and so sorry to hear about the emergency dental work! Ouch. But thanks for the reminder that I need to go in for a cleaning and check-up! May your swelling go away quickly!

Shelina said...

I'm glad your first day of work went okay, despite the tooth problems. I hope things work out well for both.

Niki said...

Glad your first wk went well and that you are recovering. My first wk is coming...and I surely am not looking forward to that awkwardness either. You know, lunch with new people, discussions about what? lol.

Fitzy, I'm WAAAYYY behind in my blog-reading, so these are very late congrats on finding gainful employment. I was beginning to worry about you falling into a life of petty crime.

I always HATE the first week on a new job (the lunch thing IS awkward), and I always remind my kids of the same whenever they start a new job (which hasn't been in quite a while, thank goodness). Sounds like you're off to a busy start, but you will find your niche and your pals soon. It should help a lot in completing your adjustment to your new world.
