Back to Work

That might have been the shortest retirement in the history of the world! Monday I started my new position and couldn't be happier with it. I fit in easily, have a wonderful rapport with the doctor and her husband, who has been running the office up to now. I have to assume they're comfortable with me too since they left me entirely alone to my own devices today, no patients and no doctor, just me all alone all day! There's a bug in every picnic however, and mine is the computer system. It's a Mac. Until Monday I had never even seen a real Mac up close, let alone worked with it. The applications they have for the office are spectacular, incredibly efficient and well designed. Now, all I have to do is learn to drive the darn thing! LOL!
I have no quilty content to show pictures of - although the Siggie quilt is finished and bound - so you'll have to put up with cute grandson pictures.

Spend a fortune on presents and they'll play with the box, or bag in this case. Fortunately I'm wise enough now to NOT spend a fortune on toys that will last a week, and know to be ready with the camera when Jayden played in the bag. Handy thing, bags. When it's time to go Daddy can just haul it away!
In excellent fire news, we finally got air water tankers on the fires yesterday and HUGE progress has been made. We have blue skies today for the first time in weeks! YAAA! The blog coming from the closest fire residents is now thanking people for help and support and planning ways to be more prepared next time. It's not over till it's over, but there's certainly an end in sight. I've been in a few restaurants when firefighters came in to eat, and was proud that all the other diners applauded and someone always bought their meals for them. "Thanks" just isn't enough.

What fun pictures of Jayden. He's turned into a lil boy already. When'd that happen??
I've heard the same about the FireFighting crews eating at the Broiler. I bet they finished everything on their plates after that kind of work!

What a great to keep for when he's older and much too big to be carried about in a bag :o)

Golly gee whiz, time sure flies by! I swear you just started your extended vacation, didn't you?! I'm glad to hear you're liking it so far--that's a good sign! Have a great holiday!

Good to hear you like your new job and I am sure you will get oriented to the MAC real fast.

Cute pictures of Jayden. I found a very heavy carboard tube that had fabric rolled on it at one time and gave it to my grandkids yesterday. Its about 5 feet long and I showed them how to make a tunnel and roll matchbox cars through it. They played with that thing off and on all day!
