I’ve talked about it and hinted about it but now it is finally here! I’ve got 18 more days until my final day of work at New Bern and just over 3 weeks until I actually pull out with a loaded truck and start my journey.
I intentionally waited until after my daughter’s graduation from BCT to start packing because I wanted my daughter to come home to “home” and not a bunch of boxes laying around. We dropped her off at her AIT station Friday and I started doing some packing on Saturday. Sunday was my “Coupon Day” and I was busy bringing stuff into the house, which just means more to pack.
Needless to say, this means that I will not be doing much blogging about genealogy this month. I am packing up all my binders and shoe boxes today. Yes, it’s the stuff that I had packed up for almost 4 years and had just recently unpacked! It’s OK, I got enough of an organizational method in place that I am confident I can unpack it and get it all set up again very quickly!
As far as my job is concerned, I am hoping that they have finally decided upon a replacement for me. With only 18 more days left, I really need to start training someone. My job may look pretty easy but that is because I have a system in place. They have to learn the product numbers for all the different types of materials, they have to learn how to set them up before cutting, how to set it up in the computer on the saw, and what the dimensions are for each piece. Yes, there are blueprints but you could waste a lot of time looking through books for blueprints and you still have to know what you are looking for! I was surprised by how little some of the temps who work with us know!
One other thing I have to get addressed is what shift I will be working, who I will report to, what I need to turn in, and how this is all going to play out.
There are a lot of things to get together in the next 3 weeks. I imagine it will be a very busy time. I’m just looking forward to getting it all done so I can finally relax and get back to the things I love to do!
I’ll check in again and let you all know how I am progressing. Until then, you will know why I am not posting very often!
Have a great week!
