Morning folks!

Been trying to catch up on email for over an hour, Lord it's hard to go back to dial up! :rolleyes:

Enjoyed my visit with Mike yesterday; boy that skimmer creates some foam. Tanks looking good too :)

Looks as though the sun is trying to break through here; I can live with that.

Jay,

Awesome, and congrats!!!!!! I can only effectively speak for myself, but I think that I echo everyone elses sentiments who are in the know about your situation by saying, I'm pretty **** proud of you. Giving up what you are and the lifestyle that it has, is a difficult thing to do. I wish you the best of luck in your new journey in life, and always remember why you made the choice you did as it will be the basis of strength that will carry you through.

Hi yall.

I got up bright an early...right at the crack of Noon....

Actually I had to come in early since I have a conference I have to attend this evening. Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy ..not...

I was put under a gun and asked to make change water for two of our tanks. (Not mine , mind you) This was Friday. I thought about the urgency this morning as I am drinking coffee and seeing the same two buckets still mixing....

Okay, so it isn't morning anymore, but better late than never!

I thought I had forgotten what school was like, but I just got back my last lesson from a training course we have to take at work...and I didn't pass. The reviewer put herself in the position of a "less-informed reader", and then responded to my report as if she were in grade school. Less-informed does not mean 3 years old. They were so incredibly nit-picky, so I voiced my opinion loudly to people who have effect over these things. They agreed on most points. Then I found out that something like 90% of our department didn't pass on the first go-round, and everyone hates these people. So why do we have to take their stupid course? So I can write a report to their satisfaction in a format and with language that I will never ever use in my actual work environment? That's what I call productive!

Wow. Didn't mean to get quite so soap-boxy...

My stand looks great, thanks to Geoff! Well, the frame anyway. I wanted to help more, but it is hard (impossible) for both of us to be out in the garage when the baby is awake. And then the tour comes on at 8 when the baby goes to bed. I will try to remember to snag a pic soon - I am not much better at remembering to capture the moment!

Hope everyone has had a better *onday than me!

:p

thanks for the well wishes everyone, very much appreciated!!

the first day went well. boss just sort of showed me around the office, showed me a few of the programs we use there, showed me the manuals, distributer contact books, how to make a quote, how to read blue prints for a customer, how to answer the phones, which line is for which business, how to transfer the calls, what all the sales peoples cell phone numbers are, and about 15 other things :eek: all of which i'll remember two items :funny: my head is about to explode lol..

overall it was a great day, we get along great, and he's really nice and patient. i found out though, from his words, he doesnt really want to have me be "just" the "office manager" he wants a right hand man... so... this will lead to good things i think.

he already told me that in 60 days after the move to the new building, (which is triple the size of the current building) that's he's gonna give me a huge raise, and also cut me in on a percentage of each sale that the sales people make.

well gotta run, i'm starved!!!! here's a pic for ya... would you hire me ? :)
