Day 252 - I Survived My First Week in My New Job
Sunday, December 08, 2013
I think I put in at least 50 hours of work in my new position. I have literally immersed myself in the paperwork that I miss my lunch. The previous case manager did a horrendous job keeping up with the paperwork and let some very important deadlines go by where the recipients lost their benefits. The client population I work for are all intellectually disabled and live in group homes. Several actually do work in the sheltered developmental training programs doing piece rate jobs.
I have yet to figure out how to input each client's data on their monthly goals or have access to staff schedules...not to mention many other important information. It is quite overwhelming! But I am looking at this as a challenge. I am keeping meticulous task notes and trying to get the filing under control while learning about the clients and their needs.
My weight is just holding steady. I lost only 2 pounds in November and not really trying like I should in the exercise department. I skipped my opportunity to jog on the treadmill yesterday...I just was not feeling it.
Oh, for my new position, I upgraded my cell phone...my first ever iPhone! LOL. I love the calendar app that holds all my schedules and deadlines. I downloaded the MapMyRun app and I am itching to try it. I may dress up like an eskimo and jog a mile just to see how it works and get a base line.
I am also playing around with other apps like Tango (which isn't working well), Snapchat, and FaceTime.
Well, gonna get going and face the day!
