I have a bunch of reading to do for the job... I started it last night and got through a good portion of it but I'll finish it up today. I have to go back in tomorrow at 9am for some more orientation. Yesterday it was just a group of three new hires that sat through orientation and the same three of us will be back tomorrow. The woman running the orientation said she likes to keep the groups small so that way we have a better chance at creating a stronger bond by being in the same group.
Yesterday was my anniversary and honestly I had to prevent myself from crying. I didn't get a card, no bouquet of flowers, no stuffed animals, no chocolates (probably a good thing), and no special dinner. He gave me a hug and said we'll do something this weekend so we'll see... he asked me what I wanted to do and I had to suppress my urge to laugh hysterically. I told him you're planning it because I've done the first 4 and the 5th is kinda special so you do it. He didn't seem all that enthused but hey he's in the dog house at the moment. A simple card or a thoughtful note was all that was warranted, I could care less about a silly gift but some thought put into it would have been greatly appreciated.
