Good news!!

What a week! I’m sorry if I didn’t get around to reading you all on a daily basis, but I’m doing my best to catch up. This job is taking quite a bit out of me, but I like it.

Good news: I finally got my computer installed at work on Wednesday (!!), which somewhat increased my efficiency and therefore also my sense of worth. On the other hand, I feel I spent (too) much of my time looking for things on the local database and had to go through an online test in order to have access to the purchasing processing system. Still so many new things to learn, but I’m starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

More good news: On Monday, my Mom could finally go home again after three weeks in the hospital. She’s doing quite well. She's so happy to be at home and I think this fact alone will speed up her recovery even more. She still wearing the full gear and has a nurse coming in every day. Family, friends and neighbours are also checking-up on her regularly and make sure that her groceries are done, cook for her and help out wherever they can.

At this point, I wish to express my thanks to all of those people. I am deeply touched and grateful that they are there for her, and I will never forget what they are doing. Thank you all for your support, love and friendship. Thank you also to all you readers out there for your positive thoughts.

yeah for the computer. Your job sounds all too similar to what I used to do...

And mom - yes being at home helps so much. Glad she is healing and back!

All of this is good news, CS...your computer, your job, your mom, etc. In time your job will settle into a routine, of course. You know that, I know. But that early learning curve can be quite daunting. I also know that when your mom is doing better, so are you! Thanks for the update.

ET: Yes. It's great. Some things at work are still not working as they should, but already much better. Mom's feeling much better now that she's home.

Ginnie: Yes, the learning curve can be daunting indeed, but I'll get it... at some point :)
