I was welcomed with warm smiles, cheerful greetings and lots of laughter yesterday. Amazing what a difference those three things can make when you are starting a new job. I talked Sookie Stackhouse with the folks in the marketing department. I talked AMC's The Walking Dead with the two guys in IT. I talked soccer mom stuff with the gals in the Education department. I talked Architecture with the head of the Communications division. I talked, laughed, grinned and had one heckuva time. The six hours flew by and I came home energized.
My schedule is set. I have things to do until my boss returns in a month. I begin, officially, tomorrow.
In the meantime, I have a Friends meeting to conduct and a Sookie Stackhouse book to read. I have errands to run and some chores to complete.
I've landed in a good place.
