More Of The New

Thanks for the kind words about Tigger. Bloggy-sister-friend, Bunny works for the Humane Society and sent me some great links. It's possible that his lameness is arthritis, so I'm going to explore adding some supplements to his food.

Speaking of NEW....last week I got to see a very new baby. When my kids were babies, my next-door neighbor had babies the same age. She was a teacher and decided to get her day-care license. When I went back to work a few years later, she took care of my kids. Now her oldest daughter lives in Florida and has a 3 week old baby boy. My friend and her husband were down from Massachusetts to see their first grandchild, so Sorority Girl and I went on a roadtrip to see them all.

Ohhhh. It REALLY made me want to be a grandmother. I got to snuggle that little muffin quite a few times in the 3 hours that we visited. It was really sweet to see someone that I've known since she was born, now a great, laid-back Mom herself.

Last night was a new work experience for me. The HUGE organizational challenge that my boss gave me was pretty much an EPIC FAIL. The map was already done and I was in charge of executing the merchandise move. It just WOULDN'T WORK with the stockroom space that we have. It's a good thing my boss had stayed to help me (after he had already worked a full day).

I'm one of those really good employees, if you tell me what to do, I'll get it done. I'm not used to being the one to tell others what to do. Finally at 9pm, with about 80% of the job done, I made the executive decision that we would all go home. I'm going to go to work an hour early today and try to finish the job myself. I have about 38 shelves that have to be color-coded and labeled. I'm locking myself in the room and getting it done.

I see large amounts of Coke Zero in my day.

Ugh. That 's hard to execute the plan when you weren't in charge of the design. Good luck.
And yay for getting to inhale new baby smell!

Good luck with your mission! Remember, you have great hair now so you can conquer anything!
