Weekend Warrior
Well, I'm not really a weekend warrior, I just put that as a post title because I couldn't wait for the weekend. Catch asked me how my first week went at work. Well, Thursday was hell. Do you know I actually cried in the bathroom? The reason was I was all set to try and get some work out of the way, on account as I'm still learning, going pretty slow and don't know what I'm doing sometimes.

So the office manager comes up and points out like 5 other memo's that are backlogged and should have been done last week and that I should email the attorney's and get them from them. I just felt so overwhelmed and stressed, and I broke down. I just didn't like the feeling of being behind before I even got started especially when I still have to ask for help and am going sort of slow.

I will tell you one thing, word traveled fast in the circle of ladies that I see a lot because everyone was asking me how things were going and encouraging me to do one thing at a time and not stress. I'm thinking, how did everyone know I was teary and falling apart when one person saw me? But at least those women won't tell everyone, they will keep it among themselves. Still, I was a little taken aback by everyone stopping by.

The bright spot was the attorney's told me I wouldn't be doing those memo's; most didn't know what I was talking about.

On Friday me and two co-workers went to Panda Express. That was nice. I was SO ready for the weekend.


My dial-up is so slow, I'll have to check out some of you guys later. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I am sorry you had such a bad day. But is sounds like you might have some co workers who will be there for you. Hang in there girl and have a great weekend!

    Yeah, it sounds as if you have a lot of support, which is really cool.

    However, if things don't improve, you give a call with the name of whoever is giving you a hard time.

    Oh, let me know what kind of car they drive, too.

    Oh, and if you have their home address, that would be great.

    Oh, and if they are an organ donor.

    Well you survived the first week and that in itself is a plus. Dealing with lawyers can't be easy but hang in there.

    Mr. Fabulous just cracked me up. It sounds like you have the right kind of friends both at work and here.

    Learning a new job is already stressful enough without coming in behind because nobody was covering the bases before you got there. The first week is always the hardest. Soon you'll be doing it so well they'll wonder how they ever got along without you.

    I am part of the Dr. John crowd, so be prepared for lots of well-wishes today.
