Big layoff at work last week....

Monday, October 06, 2008

Thank goodness I was not laid off. I have only been on my new job almost a month and there was a layoff of about 10% of my department. Hopefully, there won't be any more layoffs until next year at the soonest. It is a little nerve wracking since I am the newest hire in the department. It makes one feel a little queasy and worried. I am trying to do the best job I can and hopefully that will be good enough to keep me employed.

I know going swimming and whirlpooling this evening will make me feel so much better. I'd better quit blogging and get going now. Good evening. My plan is to go swim at least three times a week. Today is day one of this week. emoticon

    I'm so glad you have not bee laid off and I can see where that would be nerve wracking. Swimming three times a week sounds wonderful. You go girl!

Star-bellied sneeches....

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Star on, star off. That's what my new job reminds me of. I have been pulling out staples and restapling. Then in the same pieces of paper I have to remove them again. Put them through the scanner and they are shipped off to a storage facility for 7 years. Who said computers would make a paperless medical record? I think these computers are not work savers but instead are making slaves of us all. However, I am a paid slave and it is a very pleasant office envronment. We even have a nice break room (last job didn't have a breakroom). I still like my job and thank goodness I have other mundane tasks and some not so mundane tasks that I am being trained to do. Oh, yes, we don't have to work holidays and weekends ever (last job we did) and we get free coffee and tea. Wow!!!!!

    Sounds good...I remember when I was working in the schools...an electric stapler was much appreciated....so a staple puller that didn't cause pain would be great too.

Second week on new job---going great!!!!

Monday, September 15, 2008

emoticon I can do it, I have a job that I actually look forward to going to when I wake up. Must remember some ibuprofen and ice packs for sore hands in case I need those. This week will focus on walking and swimming at the gym a minimum of three times. Blamed starting new job for being lazy and losing interest in most everything.

Found fat-handled stapler puller on line and have ordered 2 different models.

It is going to be another wonderful week, for sure!!! emoticon

Running late, so gotta hurry...

Friday, September 12, 2008

Must leave the house in 15 minutes. Have been on time every day this week and am trying to turn over a new leaf. I love checking my emails and my ebay sales and purchases in the morning and sometimes lose track of time. If I get to work early I can do that at my desk. Still love my new job. Just have to learn how to remove staples without straining my hands. I think I took out 400 staples yesterday and my hand is still sore. Any suggestions? Tried a couple of kinds of staple pullers but I think I need one with a fat handle if there is such a thing. Otherwise the new job is great. emoticon

    WOW that is alot of staples. Just think though the muscles in your hands will be stronger than ever after all those staples.

Congrats on the new job! emoticon

    That's great! There should be staple pullers with fat handles, you'll probably have to search them out though. Staples aren't the easiest things to get out- 400- that's alot!
