Why does 24 hours never seem enough?

It is only Tuesday and I am ready for the weekend! The company just hired a person to worj in our department so she has been shadowing me. She comes to us from a competitor and so she knows the business and the lingo. It is the same team different uniform. But she has been by my side all day today. I like her and she has picked up on a few things already. I can't wait until she is fully functional and can help with the uneven distribution of work weight. I just have to be patient and let the learning curve run to the point of experience.

I am getting ready for my last (!) class on Saturday for Managing Cultural Diversity. It was an okay class and I am working on my final paper. It has to be at least 15 pages and I am up to 13 and still have to work on my final section. At least the prof is being reasonable and the draft is due Friday and the final paper next week. Whew!

On the home front, Chaplin Marcel (that is what the cat has been christened) is doing well. He has the place figured out and he and Yukon are getting to know each other. We have kept Yukon in her crate and let the cat out of the bathroom to wander. This has been day two where they saw each other. Chaplin has gone into the office where she was and hung out and before he was lying in the threshold and they were just looking at each other. Tomorrow we are planning on letting Yukon out and let them formally meet.

Anyway that is life in a nutshell but stay tuned I want to fill you in on some sales rep drama! Fun stuff, I know you are waiting with baited breath!
