It's been relatively quiet around here today.

Tuesday, May 18, 2004
I do believe that I saw some summer interns (engineers) downstairs this morning, though! I can't believe it's that time again already! Our admin is out this week...she got married on Saturday (though her reception here isn't until Friday) and I was afraid it was going to be chaotic without her. We're managing well enough - the paper flow is somewhat minimal so far this week...thank goodness!

It's really quiet up here right now. All the managers are behind closed doors somewhere. There is so much going on now that we don't know anything about. Apparently all will be revealed June 9th at our next Town Hall Meeting - that's what they call our company wide meetings. That's when all of the supposed changes are going to take place and when we get our merit raises as well. Since this new CEO has taken office we have all seen a lot of changes...mostly for the good, but one thing for sure it has made for a LOT of meetings and training! Next Tuesday is when I go for my training session - it's all personnel related. Goal targeting/setting and the like. Those who have been said it's long and tedious. Great! I wish I had registered early and got it over with!

one hour later...

Well, the managers are back now and it's almost four...only one hour to go. This week is going to just drag on, I can already tell. At least it's pretty outside this afternoon. I won't have a nasty commute home! Michael is playing softball tonight so I am going to lay on the couch and watch SVU - he's playing two days a week now, so I am taking one day off from the ball park! I'll go to tomorrow's game instead b/c it's at a new park!

I have to clean out this office. It's beginning to look so cluttered. I started a couple weeks ago. I took the beanie-type dolls off the top of my computer - all but the fishy from the Red Sea and the Gaudi Dragon from Parc Guell. Now, though, they are just sitting off to one side on my desk. I need to do something with them. I also have three boxes of note paper/cards & envelopes, a bud vase, three plants, lotion, a radio, frames, and various other nick-nacks. Maybe I'll really spend some time tomorrow during lunch and get things looking a little less cluttered around here.
