What a Week!

I'm glad it's over. I had a busy week at work even with a snow day. I'm learning some new stuff to cover for another girl who will be out next week for some medical stuff so I have been running back and forth between two buildings to work. Thursday after Wed's storm I almost killed myself because I dress up for work and was wearing a suit with heels. I got to a point where I was almost skating/face planting and must have looked like a total idiot but I kept myself up and then proceeded over to the crunchy snow to walk the rest of the way. My feet were very cold and wet by the time I got to where I was going.  It's also interesting because I'll be working with all women for the first time in about 8 years. The last two jobs I've had all the people I worked closely with were men, just the nature of the 'engineering' world but this job the other Config. Managers are women. Let me tell you this is going to be a challenge. One woman who is at a lower level than me already resents me because I am doing the coverage instead of her.  She has a huge attitude with her 'lead' already and yesterday I was very uncomfortable with the bickering that was going on with the woman I'm covering for and the lead. Granted the woman is going in for surgery and was under a lot of stress but I am so not used to the crap that goes on between women at work! LOL! I can tell I'll be listening to my Ipod a lot!

Now as for crap between women, I've got my own thing going on at home with my MIL but I am so not getting into that! Let me just say that I've decided to distance myself from the situation and leave it at that. :)

And in other news, we are in for another whopper of a storm tonight! 5-10 inches is on the way. At least this time it's a weekend and the boys won't have another snow day to makeup. At this point they will be in school until July! Oh and it's also freezing!

Have a fantastic weekend all!

Girls suck sometimes :(

We already got that snow. It started about 15 hours ago and has yet to stop. Awesome.

Good luck with the girl thing. You'll rise above it!

I'd like to experience your weather for a week. Just a week.

I hear ya on the MIL front! Sounds like distance may be the perfect solution!
