Got back to work yesterday, hit the floor running. I have a new project due to go-live in October. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a project manager. Didn't even know what they were until I became one. My performance review was yesterday, apparently I am doing a great job. (I don't feel very confident about that, since I don't feel like I know what I am doing.) At least in nursing, I knew what to do and where to find information if I needed it. This is a whole different animal. I have a great mentor in my boss, she is just amazing. The hospital has utilized her talents for approximately 10 years, she blazed the trail in the organization. I am very fortunate to have her as my boss. She doesn't read this blog, so don't think I am sucking up.
Isaac has been turning wands on the wood lathe. The Harry Potter phenomenon has caused a huge need/want for this type of thing. They are really pretty neat. He charges $4/$5 each for them. He has researched them on the internet to gain an understanding of the type wood to use, as well as length. They are anywhere from 11 1/2"-13 1/2" long. I didn't like him making them at first, but I have to admit, they are pretty neat. I'll have to get some pictures to post. He's going to sell them at the local craft show in Oct. or Nov. I don't remember when it is.
Going to a wedding this weekend at the Castle Unicorn, the reception is held there, also. I have never been there, haven't even gotten a wedding gift for the bride and groom. I better get hopping, I think. The girl didn't register at very many places, and only for about 5-10 items. She has invited 250 guests, it amazes me that the brides never register for anything, then the guests are left to their own devices. I wouldn't want to get a purple yard gnome, a tiger striped shower curtain, or whatever. Many people are clueless about gift giving. I would be more specific, but that is just me, I've gotten very anal over the years. Drives Steve insane.
Only 2 months and the grandbabies are coming to visit. Noah's birthday will be around that time. I can hardly wait to see them again.
