What a crazy day today...Monday's are always a bit topsy turvy at work, today was a typical Monday in the fact that over the weekend papers magically appeared in my in box.
Today was different in the fact that we had 6 new summer students starting today. Things went very well though, as we tried a different way of instructing. Usually each department does their own training/orientation. Today they did the training/orientation as a group. I had the group for an hour this morning doing the safety orientation and tour. It certainly was much better than doing each person individually.
My lunch time was eventful also, not sure how I managed it, but I spilt my soup all over myself....the positive in this....my soup was clear soup with noodles so no staining! Boy was it hot though...had to rush off to the bathroom to cool my leg off! Positive ....no burn, just red. Rinsed my sweater front off in the sink, then washed my pant leg off. It really was quite funny as I came out of the washroom looking rather damp! (no dryer). Positive of wearing my clothes until they dried naturally....I work in an area where the public never sees us! Besides I provided my co-workers with a source of amusement. I did notice that as my clothes dried there was a distinct odor of "soup du jour". What a day!
Now I have had the opportunity to sit down and relax and read what everyone else has been up to today...find out that I've been to a virtual pool party! Woo hoo! much better swimming in clean water than in Soup! Thanks Kathy for the party, really enjoyed the fun and laughter....just a question though.....can I stand by Marla next time, rather than Polly? LOL. Polly says it was "iced tea" that she spilt but I'm not sure, I only saw lemonade at your party! Thanks guys for the laughter and fun. Your place tomorrow Kathy????
My positives today....no burn from the soup, provided my co-workers with some amusement, training session with new students went very well, a virtual pool party, friends who care for each other and encourage each other, health, happiness, and just plain being alive!
Hope your day was just as good.
