Morning all. Just checking in to say hi.
Gotta say, moving out to Texas has been hard. Weather is cold and wet. But our friends are great, we are getting to know new people, and we have gotten to hang out with, and make a lot of new friends.
But, getting significantly more things done around the house, online, and actually having a life now...priceless!!!
Also...since I vented so much before about how bad work was before...I have an update: Yesterday my new supervisor made some comments about how valued the information that I have is, how its appreciated, and how they need the help that I have been providing. She said something to the effect that because of the help that I am providing, she is trying to make our new department what it should have been, and will be going forward. That all the work that I have been doing for the last 5 years will now be looked at, and actually used to make the job better. Seriously brought me to tears, and I had to walk away. (I am not afraid to admit that, btw). Its what we were hoping for...and we are both anxious to see if it lasts.
Its a little bit overwhelming, considering how we got slammed for 5 years for making recommendations that just stopped at our supervisor, how our work was used by the old supervisor and submitted as if it was his own work, how we had no one that would back us up, or appreciate our work....
Refreshing, but a little overwhelming....and kinda strange too.
Anyways, thanks for letting me vent and have a place to share this stuff!!!
