Daffodils & my first week at work

There's a local park that is famous for its Spring Daffodil bloom. We took the girls last Sunday; it was our first trip in the brand new Minivan.

I thought a nice relaxing day would be the perfect thing before beginning work on Monday.

The week started off rough. When I arrived at work, I didn't have a computer or access to the system so there wasn't much for me to do. Then they sent me to another campus 25 minutes away as the team representative to a meeting I knew nothing about. When I left for home I started crying, I missed the girls so badly. I was disheartened when I arrived at home to learn that Aurelia only drank 1 oz of breastmilk.

The next morning they had me observe users in a hospital unit who were unhappy with the software configuration in the hopes that I could offer suggestions as to how to improve it. I had no time to prepare and felt put on the spot. I guess you could say they threw me into it. Carina pitched a fit when Mike left for work {right after me} in the morning. And Aurelia drank NO breastmilk at all. I began to panic.

Since Wednesday, I've made great strides in solving some of the issues they are encountering and have begun offering my recommendations. The software is coming back to me quickly and easily and I'm beginning to really enjoy working with it again. More importantly, with your help and advice (thanks!!) Aurelia is now taking more milk. Carina seems to be having a lot of fun with the Nanny. I think in a week or so I'll ask my boss about working a couple afternoons from home (this was something we had discussed as a possibility during my phone interview).

I'm feeling really good about this. Thanks for your support!
