I didn't have time to write a blog yesterday because I started my new job and had absolutely no time for Spark last night. My first day started with me leaving the house at 6:45 AM and I arrived at the office around 7:25 AM. The door to the office was closed BUT I did hear people in the office. I was told to arrive by 8 AM for the new hire orientation. The orientation went well until after lunch. By the way, the COO (Rob) took us to lunch because the IT VP was out sick. We had a two hour lunch. On the way back to the office, we stopped at the Microsoft store and played with the XBox connect (sp) for 30 minutes. I didn't do very well and gave up on the game. When we came back, we were given our laptops and off we went. Off we went where? We had no idea what we were supposed to do after we received our laptops. Anyway, we went to "our" assigned cubes and made sure we can login to the network and apps. I stayed until 5:19 PM and took about one hour to drive home.
Today, I left at 7 AM and got to the office around 7:50 AM. I tried a route recommended by my hubby and it turned out to be a bad idea. There was a huge back up at the corner of Annandale Road and Gallows Road. So, I turned around and went the way the route I took on Monday. I went ahead and started with finishing reading the documents in the PPM. Then, I did an online class on Sharepoint. I ate lunch around 12:30 PM and in one of the kitchens. Arthur joined me. I left the office around 5:05 PM and got home around 6 PM.
