Work...

I know a few of you have been asking about my new job and this is one of those topics I have to be careful about.....with this being a public blog and all....but I will do my best to give you the "jest"
I work for a company that has been around for 100 + years...they manufacture, ship and install professional kitchens. We do almost every fast food, chain, fine dining, grocery store that you could think of.  This company has 5 "sister" companies that are all under the same "umbrella". I am in the transportation department.
 Getting to pick out work outfits every morning for the most part is very fun! I am a "tad" over dressed for my company but whatever works for me.....ya know? What am I kidding.... I pick out my outfits on Sunday like a kid getting ready for school. That cuts down on my "get ready" time immensely.
 My department handles ALL the freight, quotes, invoices, checks....anything that has to do with getting our kitchens to their locations. You would be amazed at how much is shipped out....this stack is just ONE days freight invoices that I "code".
 This building has been around since 1960 and that was the last time it was renovated too! HA! I actually don't even have a desk....yet....still. But behind that half-wall will be my very own cubicle! For now I share a desk with my boss. Yup, sure do! He is actually gone for 2 weeks for the military so I have taken over his desk and duties while he is away.
This new "work life" will take a bit getting use to....I am not allowed to email or use the internet at all. So the only emailing I can do during the day is on my phone. And yes, my boss told me it was ok....he told me they all hate the restrictions.
 The company is in a factory/manufacturing part of Columbus that is in the real ghetto (hey, said my boss too) ....but our parking lot has a gate and we have key-fobs to get in the building. My boss told me never to get gas or do anything on this part of town during lunch. This is the parking lot view and at lunch most days I am dying to see the daylight. (No windows inside) This is about 14 miles from my house and somedays I can make it in 25minutes .....others 50 minutes.
Over all things are going well....I am getting a routine down and getting to know the HUGE factory with my company. I think change is hard even when it is good. Ya know?

I'm glad things are started to become settled. and I agree...no matter the change, it is usually hard. Good or bad.
