More Details

So I’m sure I’ve kept you in suspense long enough. Obviously I have a new job, well, an additional job. I just keep collecting jobs, let’s see, I’m up to three now. My main job is now is Assistant Director at one of the best day care centers in the area. Don’t get too excited. While I’m really good at the computer / office / managerial stuff, I have a *ton* to learn. And I’ve never worked with children before. But I think I learned quite a bit this week. After all, learning the financial end of things there and the state regulations, in my opinion, are some of the most important pieces – I mean of the office stuff. The children are the most important, of course.

How and why did I get this job? I didn’t go looking for a new job. I was hoping that things would progress for my career at my now part time job. But I got a phone call one Saturday three weeks ago asking what it would take to make me say “Yes” to working at my now new job. I thought about it and gave my answers and they agreed. The owner has given me permission to do whatever I want to do, but I can’t think about making changes in processes until I *learn* the present processes.

Oh, and I’ve been asked to be the resident photographer / webmaster as part of my job. Hmmm, I wonder why? Do you think it could be because I’ve whipped out my camera all week taking photos of the dog? So whenever I feel like taking a break and being in a classroom to watch the cute little kids, when they’re being cute that is, I will be able to. Pretty cool, huh?

I love it when Coraggio plays like this. He’s so cute!

And don’t worry, this isn’t turning into a work / dog blog. It’s just that work is all I’ve been doing, and will be doing until we’re able to make some personnel changes, then I’ll be back to the work hours I want (7-3:30), hopefully!

Regarding my now part-time job, when I gave my two weeks notice, they asked me to stay on as a part-time employee coming in whenever I feel like it. And this week my part-time job manager got fired. You may remember I had a feeling a while back that she was going to be let go. Okay, enough about work. Time to go enjoy the weekend!

    Congrats, Pam! I hope you like it – I’m sure the children will charm you as much as that little dog.

    Pam, you will love the change of scenery – little children, animals. Makes the day interesting since not one day will be the same as another. State financial work is a terror – I hate it and the jerking around. But, like you, I’m the photographer for our police cadet training and I love it. Today I photographed driver training – on Friday I photographed tear gas training. You’ll enjoy the break from the dreaded PAPERWORK!

    Happy for you,
