I can’t believe I wasn’t able to stop by and write a post all day.. I’m here at home at almost 8:30PM taking advantage of Angel’s finally being asleep and trying to sneak something in here before the day ends.
The new boss handed me two pads of paper from the meeting he attended the past two days. And to think he doesn’t even know yet that I have a thing for paper! (Something I will write about sometime in the future..not now..) Little things like that mean a lot to me — it shows me he’s thinking of me making better use of these things he might not have a use for.
There was lots of work to do, and with the boss in, there was much that kept me busy. The ex-boss drove me a little nutty with another document request for something I can’t remember even putting together. It could be in a shared drive I no longer have access to, but since I didn’t get a call from the new assistant, all I can presuppose is that they found what they were looking for.
Should I even bother? A friend told me to just let it go and ignore them. I wish it were that easy. Fortunately, I got very wrapped up with finishing the tasks I owed the real boss.
I managed to traipse out of the office at just 3 minutes after 5:30 which would never be possible with the other boss. The new guy even eggs me to leave when he realizes it is past 5:30 and I stay because he’s still around.
I’m looking forward to a good partnership with him — so much so that sometimes I feel like I’m such an eager beaver. There is a touch of anxiety that creeps upon me when I think about the ex-boss getting to him with the bad news about the things she didn’t like about me. I’m hoping he sticks to his gut feel which made him choose me among the applicants he got.
We’re not seeing each other for another week and a half. Almost two, actually. I guess that’s good — he won’t get too much of me. LOL
