I really like that everyone is so positive, not only about their job, but about the people they work with. Where I've been the last year there has been one particular individual that has created a downer - always complaining about her job, the people around her, and anything else she can think of. In fact she had twice accidentally instant messaged me instead of another with whom she was complaining about me to. Her I don't miss at all. I also don't miss the drive. I am only driving half the distance, it is about 1/3 less of the time but the mileage is great on the gas budget.
It feels good to enjoy going to work again!

...the rest of that story, well I know now not to take Savannah to the vet next time. She had another one of her breathing/fainting spells. This will be #3. The pediatrician stated once again that it is normal and she will grow out of it but if it ever happens out of the blue for no reason, i.e. getting hurt or upset by a dog who is in pain getting stuck with a needle, then she really needs to get some major tests done. So scary though no matter what causes it.
I start my new job tomorrow. I will be processing publicly funded state issued food stamps, medicaid, and childcare benefits. Still accounting based but more people oriented. I'm excited however I am so used to a routine it is hard not knowing what to expect and unable to feel competent. At least there will be no expectations of me right away, after all I will have to have training before they can decide if they made a good choice. I found out that there are a couple of other transfers such as myself, so that is cool. There will be about 10 of us in training and I think we are also going to be the guinea pigs for the new system that will be coming out statewide later on in the year. Kind of cool to see it before everyone else. I hope I can be good in this job, I know it will be hard, but it will be challenging for me.
New Year's resolutions anyone? I never really seem to make them. I tend to always want to change or do something in the back of my mind. I guess if I were to write them down, they'd probably have a better chance of being accomplished. Hmmm...I do know of one, and that is to start blogging on a regular basis again. Another is to get back on track with Weight Watchers or at least with watching my weight in any shape or form. Since Thanksgiving it's been something I have not forced myself to do. I also would like to get my carpet replaced this year, not really a resolution, but it is a goal nonetheless. There are even more resolutions I know, but why overwhelm myself today with them all?
