First Day of New IT Work -- and "From One Rose" Tonight

So today was my first actual workday as the IT person for PRFA.

I was supposed to meet with the IT consultant at 9:00 a.m., but he was late (by close to an hour). That should have been a sign, I think.

I had a list I wanted to work from -- but it didn't go that way at all.

Other things happened that were a surprise, too.

Anyway, things were far less productive than I'd hoped.

But I got a start. I guess that's something!

Marilyn and Jeff had a productive meeting today, anyway. So we'll see where that takes us.

(I'm interested to see what the computer research will show, anyway.)

I did get my cube in pretty good shape this morning, seeing as I was at the office around 7:00 a.m. (Marilyn had Executive Board this morning.)

Tonight we went to the special showing of "From One Rose," with friend Mitch. I love that movie so much!

Mitch drove, because there's apparently something wrong with the car. It seems to be tied to the air conditioning, which annoying when you consider the car was in this year to have it fixed -- to the tune of around $800! (sigh)

I hope it's nothing serious, anyway -- and nothing too expensive.

Tomorrow I have a large list of things I need to get done around here.

So that should keep me busy tomorrow! Oh -- and I need to decide what to wear to work on Thursday...

Today. Not Exactly What I Planned. (smile)

Okay, today was a tough one. So I could moan and groan about it. But what the hell -- this too shall pass, as Marilyn mistressmarilyn reminded me.

Besides -- there were some very good moments! (grin)

It's hard to keep a good (wo)man down.

Now I need to do the garbage and recycling and head to bed. We have another very early day tomorrow! (And tons to do.)

That list from yesterday? I didn't get much done. Dishes and some laundry. I used a very small (and dull) hand saw to cut two branches off the tree out back. (Hard work -- but satisfying!) And the two rose bushes in the corner had fallen over, so I had to cut them back a bit and tie them up. I was really attacked by both bushes, but it's done now! (I have photos to share, but no time to load them up right now.)

I spent ages on phone support in my IT role for the festival. On top of everything else, we couldn't connect to the internet today! So I had to go in this afternoon, even though this wasn't supposed to be my work day. Which is okay! (That's why I didn't finish much from my 'To Do' list. (smile)

We tracked the problem down to a bad modem, but Amy and I were having a bitch of a time getting the new modem configured. So we'll give it a go again tomorrow.

Anyway, Marilyn and I didn't get home from the office until around 10:00 p.m. We had a great talk with the wonderful Leslie!

Speaking of tomorrow, we have a very early day (again), that starts in the office at 7:30 a.m. -- so I need to go finish the garbage and recycling (sigh) and head to bed as soon as I can (considering it's now 11:39 p.m.)...

Yes, I miss being more active here at LJ, but work has to come first, after all!

I hope things go better tomorrow. Hell, I'm sure they will! And believing it is getting halfway there.

Go, me!
