All's well that ends well

For as much as yesterday was the usual hectic Monday, I got a TON of stuff done in the way of processing two new hires, one reclassification and submitted for a job description for someone. The AA job has nearly...well let's go see...ah, finally closed at 331 applicants (actually more since before I left last week, I weeded out several people that were clearly not qualified so probably close to 340). One of the people is going to be working for our office, not necessarily "with" me as much as "around" me since he'll be Elaine's boss in the Office of Grants Facilitation.

But Elaine was VERY glad that he finally is calling me by my first name and referring to himself as "Joe."  She was worried that he was going to be all stiff and formal and try to rule the office and not let her do what she likes to do. We maaaay have done some googling and found out what his wife looks like and she looks to be very sweet. Both of them have PhDs in social psychology. Makes me wonder if conversations with him will re-spark any interest in my silly BS in Psych. But anyway, I have a feeling he'll be a good neighbor. Once we can get the office he's supposed to be in emptied since it looks like it should be in an episode of Hoarders since it's where all the stuff from the Development office is being stored before they move to another building.

I'm hoping today not to have to mess with any hiring stuff since I need to make a dent in former Bosslady's job. I don't like being behind at all and I need to get part of that caught up before having to poke people for the big end of year reporting next month (which is next week...ugh...already?)

I need to get myself together this morning and get dressed and get to work but it's nice that for once in a long while, I don't feel the anxious rush to do it. Which is nice for the kitties since they'll get a few more moments with Mom before she has to abaaaandon them for work.

It's going to especially be a challenge because we currently have a temporary employee which we were hoping to move into this AA job BUT not only do we have other people in the building recommending people (at least two I know personally), we also received an email that there's a layoff person that by Union rules, we are required to interview and consider if they are qualified (which they are)

I'm glad that I made myself the technical person on this and not on the actual search committee!

I shall try. You too *huggles*

You'll love what I did with one of the walls in the living room. I'll try to take a decent picture of it soon. I found a $20 wall cling that called to me in Target and I was crossing my fingers that it was reasonably priced and fortunately it was.

can't wait to see it!
did you figure out how to hang the fan? there are some suggestions online, even a youtube video about Neat Pleats fans.

I was going to make that the weekend project. I think I can thread string through some of the wooden parts on the end and connect them to 3M hooks to support the weight without using nails.

I can't decide whether to hang it at an angle or not, though.

hmm, think about the location of the wind element in the quadrants you have; perhaps you can angle the fan in a way that "sweeps" the air toward that section.

Just popping in to say - congrats on the move and I hope you're settling in well there. And y'know what? That job ain't going nowhere. Just concentrate on the things with drop-dead deadlines and sort out the rest as best you can.
