Monday for you,but it's Sunday for me. Back to the old grind tomorrow. Sorry, I was really stressed last Friday. However, Friday and Saturday went better. I passed my test on Saturday with a 100%. Saturday night we had potluck at work and Duane made his chili for me take in. Several said, "It's the best chili I've ever had." "This chili is the bomb, man." "That chili was totally awesome." Now, you wish you could have some of his chili too.
D: You can take the chili in to share with all your friends.
Me: They are not my friends, they're my co-workers. A little closer than acquaintances, but still the hand is held up. No, closer than this.
D: Yeah, I get it.
Me: Now, my blog readers in various far away places. They're my best buddies. (I held my arms wide like group hug.)
Tomorrow, we start training on the phones taking real calls. Every time I think about that, I get a little sick. I might have passed the test, but I feel totally unprepared. Oh well, it's training. What's the worst that can happen than the customer (a stranger) thinks I'm an idiot. The trainer says we get to be a superhero, solving peoples problems every day. I didn't tell her I'm already Superwoman, as I'm posing as a mild mannered knitter. Even if my cape is a little crooked and I have a run in my tights.
Phrases I've picked up this week, At the end of the day. You only know what you know. Whatever that looks like for you. My personal favorite said by the lady sitting next to me, "Every time I see that Powerpoint screen, I die a little inside."
Baby sweater and hat is mailed off with a gift card for my daughter today. She should get it by Wednesday, in time for her to get what she needs before she goes to the hospital on Friday. It was asked if it bothers me that I won't be there. Yes, it does. I'm trying not to think about it. I can't buy a plane ticket and even if I could, I can't miss a day of work until after Saturday. Emotional button switched to the off position.
I'll post the lousy picture I took of the hat sweater at the post office. I was still knitting on the hat while my friend was driving us to various stores. Right down to the wire, that's me. Hopefully, by Saturday, or maybe sooner I can steal pictures of the baby off the other grandma's FB page. Hopefully the baby will be wearing the hat. Then we can all go "Awww" from a distance.
The birds will have a surprise for you tomorrow. No not more eggs or baby birds.
Thanks for dropping by and reading my crazy ramblings. You all are the best.
