Back into the "real" world

So on Monday I started a job as an administrative assistant at a assisted living facility. And so far I am loving it! Great people to work with in the office and all around the whole building. And the residents are wonderful. There are at this time about 80 people who live there and getting to know all of them by name is going to be hard. However, I have already gotten to know a few of them. Those are the ones who come into the offices everyday to say hello and chat. I was a little worried about using the phone system. I have never used one like it before but today I think I did great. Only lost one phone call and that was with someone in the building so not a huge deal. They all know I'm new so are being super nice. This is where I work . This is a great company and I know I will be able to go far within it.
Oh did I mention how I LOVE adult conversations? Its so nice to be able to have a normal conversation, and not just with a 3 year old. I'm only working 4 hours a week Monday-Friday. I will get to spend the same amount of time as I do now with the kids as before. Joe and I will see less of each other in the week. But its not like we don't see each other at all. So it is A OK, well I guess at least for now.
