A few things from work:
- A new girl is starting on Thursday, and she's going to be sitting caddy-corner from my across the aisle and next to Kara. I hope she won't mind all the talk about cats and candy consumption (we're terrible...so much for working in public health!).
- My boss asked me how I was feeling compared to last week when I told her that I could feel my anxiety rising with Sadira departing and leaving me to pick up some of the pieces. Well, this week, I was able to do my part with those pieces and then send them off to someone else, so I'm feeling so much better. It was nice that she remembered and asked. I'm fortunate to have a boss cares enough to ask.
- I got a request from another director this afternoon. "Can you upload this for me?" She basically shuffled along another request from another director. Um, no. We talked about this at the in-person meeting 2 weeks ago, remember? If staff don't get used to uploading stuff themselves and relying on me to do it, they never learn and they won't get in the habit of doing it and they won't take ownership of the content in the database. I went back and forth of what to do because I didn't want to come off like a brat, but I decided to stand my ground and explain the importance of staff doing it themselves. Her answer was "yup sorry." Whew.
