Oh what a week(s)

Sorry I have not posted in the last couple weeks.  Some of you know this, but after working 22 yrs for a local government my position was eliminated in the name of budget cuts.  Well, I was hired by the Dept of Treasury.  I started training last week and I'm not so sure my old brain can handle all the information they are throwing at me.  I'm doing fine, but I do feel like I'm back in college or high school again.  Everyone seems so very nice and willing to help if you need it.  I must say I have never worked at a place like this.  I have worked with some nice people over the years, but here everyone seems genuinely nice.

I am getting ready for my annual mini workshop with Barb Carroll at the Woolley Fox.  I hope to take the camera with me and get some good photos for you.  Maybe on Labor Day I'll have time to actually post them.

Summer vacation is over for the kids here in Washington County, Maryland and the evenings have been cooler...it's starting to feel like fall.  I know it won't last and the heat will come back it always seems to happen as soon as the kids are in school.

Enjoy and hope for no more earthquakes.  Us east coast people aren't use to them.

    Congrats on the new job!!! What a treat to work with genuinely nice people.
    How lucky that you are going to the Woolley Fox. One of these days...sigh.
    Pug hugs :)

  2. Good luck with your new job. You will catch on quickly. Years of working in local govt should prepare you for any challenge :)

  3. Congratulations on your new job! It won't take long before it's second nature to you. So nice to hear that everyone is so nice!

  4. Great news on your job and lucky you getting nice people to boot! Yep- not used to the shaking around here! At least it was short!

  5. Congrats on the new job. I just started a new job this week...still doing the same thing, but with all new folks! It can get boggling! I look forward to seeing pics of the up and coming workshop. I love Barbara Carroll!
    Have a great week.

  6. Congratulations on the new position!! I'm sure you'll do great and will be an asset to the department....I agree with Kim that if you survived 22 years in local government, you're up for anything! Will be looking forward to photos from the workshop!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
