So far, so good....?

So far so good - things seem stable at work (am I jinxing myself by saying that?)
For the most part I think I've got the basic functions down,  but I hate it when I make even the smallest mistake. We're moving to a different location (in Roseville, MN). Curious and slilghtly apprehensive about that.

I have a lot of things I'd like to talk about but can't. Not here.

Take care!

Return of April

Greetings!

Good news first:

Previously I mentioned Hunter Douglas coming in to shut down Warren Steven, and that most employees would be let go.

I was one of the VERY few who got to keep their job. I work in scheduling for installtions, measures and service calls. Stress level? NO comparison compared to what I was doing before. I enjoy working with Michelle, and so far, its all going well I think. I will officially have medical benefits next Thursday. (YAY!)

Bad News thus far for 2011:

Uncle Mikey died. Very very sad. :(

My sweet Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff) Rommy died on March 25th. He was nearly 8 years old. He wasn't ill, or  injured. The day prior, he slipped and fell on our lower deck, but got up and came in.  The following morning, he slipped and fell again, but could not / refused to get up again.  John and I got him in the lower patio door, (he weighed over 160 pounds), layed him down on the floor, gave him some love, some pets and some cuddles. We thought he maybe pulled a muscle or something, and was a little shook up / scared about what happened. I let Katie downstairs to see him, then I gave him some rub-rubs, cuddles, told him I loved him and went to work. 1 hour later, after I got to work, my sweet Rommy bear crossed the rainbow bridge. I miss him every hour of every day. But I know he is happy and having a good time over on the other side and I'll see him again someday.

Love to you all,
April

In other news...

1st - our garage door opener bit the dust. What a pain in the ass.
2nd - found out that Hunter Douglas is going to come in and shut down Warren Steven - with the slight possibility that they'll keep some of the employees - damn I hope so. I can't be without insurance

I had  a fantastic new years eve with John.
