The Invisible Man Speaks!

OK, folks. So it has been a rather long time since I last posted. Let’s just say that my life has been a little busy. Last week on Monday I started my new job. My official title is Associate Network Planning Engineer, isn’t that a mouth full. I work on a team that develops tools to help track the cellular network and help to plan for expansion. The crazy thing about last Monday was that even though I was starting no one there that day really knew that I was starting. The guys I work with got the emails that morning about me starting. The IT deptartment wasn’t very happy as they hadn’t even begun working on getting me a computer. I basically had not computer and no desk to call my own. By the end of that week I had finally gotten a computer to use and a desk to work at, I also got my new company cell phone.

The phone wasn’t all I had hoped. We basically get a free phone up to $250, but at retail prices. I was really hoping to get my hands on a new Treo 700p, but I was only going to be able to get that by forking over an additional whopper of $400 out of my pocket. With the new move I just going justify spending that kind of money. In the end I have a decent phone, but I’m not able to do all the bluetooth syncing stuff I would have liked to do. I was able to easily send the contacts I felt I needed over to the phone from my Mac Address Book, which was nice.

I spent most of Saturday and Sunday with Vanessa. On Saturday morning she had to take her car in for some checkup stuff before it was taken out to NY. We went to the mall and did some shopping. I actually came out pretty good with my shopping. I saved almost $150 off the retail price wiht what I bought. Great sales for sure. We went to a great pizza place for lunch and I had my first calzone, boy was that excellent eatin!

Sunday I helped Vanessa get some stuff done at church, she works there by-the-way. I ran and got us Subway for lunch, we got back to her place about 4:30. We just spent some time together. She was heading out on a missions trip on Monday morning and she won’t be back until like the 23rd. She made an amazing supper for me that night. It was meatballs and rice, along with fruit and salad. I’d have to say is definitely one of my favorites. That night I got in on a server upgrade at work, around 10pm, but I didn’t get home until like 6:30am the next morning. Let’s just say that things didn’t go as planned. I didn’t end up going into work until a bit after noon on Monday.

Monday night I went over to Vanessa’s parent for supper and to power-wash my patio bench. I’m going to be staining/water sealing it and needed to get it cleaned up. I had a wonderful time visiting with Vanessa’s parents. I always have so much fun and feel so at ease with her family. I did manage to get a little bit more sleep that night than the previous.

Well, and that brings me to today. Another day of work and getting more projects added to my list. I do have to say that I was a bit happy because of something that was mentioned at a meeting we had. One of my co-workers complimented me rather nicely to my boss. It was so nice to hear that I’m relaly seen as an asset to the team.

So I didn’t go into a lot of detail, it has been awhile and I just don’t have the time to go into the kind of detail I normally would ifI was just recapping a day. I hope all those that might be stumbling by, to check up on me, are doing excellent as well. I’ll do my best to get back into a few more posts each week. It seems kind of crazy to go from multiple daily posts to only once every couple of weeks. I do however post my morning devotional thought almost every morning over on my Faith Shaping website. Alrighty, cio!
