Work is going fine. I haven't done a whole lot this week so far. My supervisor was unexpectedly out of the office Monday and Tuesday, so there are a lot of things that I won't be able to do until today. Hopefully, she'll be able to get me set up with the appropriate modules on whichever computer I'm working on so I can start doing more of these things on my own. So far everyone has been very friendly and helpful...it really does seem to be a great environment to work in. Not that it matters...it pays in U.S. dollars and that was my requirement for a job. Hopefully I'll have more details on work later this week.

So here Nick is on the bed with all of his new...mended...babies. Is my child spoiled or what - nobody needs that many toys. It's amazing how much more productive you are when you have a "day off" from something rather than...oh...just not working at all for 2 years.
We had a joint birthday dinner with my family for Me and Danny on Saturday night. This was great fun for Nick when we got home because that meant there were...........BAGS! Nick of course thought the presents were for him. As soon as we came in, I put the bags on the pool table and here is where Nick sat for quite a long time waiting for someone to give him his bags.
He stayed like that for a while. Unfortunately, I missed the photo of him standing - he only sat like this after he wore out from standing on his hind legs trying to get the bags. He just thinks that anyone who comes here comes to see him and anything that comes into the house is brought to him...Did I mention SPOILED??

Danny has only worked outages in his internship and really doesn't know what his day-to-day routine will be (other than getting up in the middle of the night - alarm went off at 4:30 this morning). Today isn't at the plant, and will mostly be paperwork and some computer training, we think.
I will be working all day today at my part-time job. It is going well...not a huge learning curve...I've just jumped in and started working. Last week I worked 4 days but 2 of them were orientation. We'll see once I get settled in just how many hours a week this is going to be. Things are going well and I am still looking for full-time work, but I feel at least I have both feet on the threshold at the hospital which is a major step toward getting full-time employment there.
