    I "shadowed" people today while the phone was ringing off of the wall.

    Did some paper work, successfully, learning the new computer program.

    Got the Murph on a new "schedule" ( have to be in by 8 Am, as opposed to 9 AM).

    Even went home for lunch. As I was getting ready to leave, the power went out in the neighborhood, so I came home to make sure it was on. It's 4.5 miles away, no biggie.

    All in all, a damned good day !!!

    Thanks :)

    What amazes me is how tired I am, guess I'm coming down from the stress & the subterfuge of looking for a new job !

    I'm hoping the weekend will see it subside. Gonna be nice not to do 2 jobs on Saturday, and cram everything into Sunday !

    Tomorrow, I get to answer some phone calls and work the computer program ;)

    Take good care of the shop and field guys. You know how much they hate the paperwork. "Aw Dix, do I have too?"
