Training – Day 1

It was a tired morning this morning after not much sleep last night. And then of course, it was “sit through a TON of mostly boring briefings” day. . . They couldn’t have picked a better day. And we couldn’t have food or beverages in the room we were in so no coffee or Mtn. Dew. But I made it through all the briefings – maybe a dozen of them – on all kinds of subjects from cultural stuff to health to legal stuff to Equal Opportunity/Sexual Harassment, etc. There were actually a few interesting ones, so it wasn’t a total waste of a day, but it sure was a long day. We started at 0930 and finally broke for lunch at 1255 (we had a few 5 minute breaks through there) and then back from 1330 to 1630.

After stopping for gas, I got Robbie from day care and then we went to the grocery store to get a few things for tomorrow – need to have lunch/food that we can put in our cargo pockets since we’ll be doing hands-on stuff in the field. We played for a while after we got home and then I started the sloppy joes for supper. Ryan had to work until 6 and had to run an errand on the way home, so we ate kind of late – about 6:45. Then we watched a Bob the Builder cartoon we had Tivo’ed before bedtime. Robbie snuggled with me for most of it. Once he was in bed, it was time for TV and stitching. Here’s a picture of one of my projects I’m working on. It’s by designer Lizzie Kate, and there’s a different chart for each month. I decided to do them all on one piece of fabric, and I have 10 months done now. Free Image Hosting at
