A Mary Poppins kind of day...
It sure was blustery today....I didn't realize it until I've parked at work, and as I was shrugging my coat on, and looking at the tree next to the parking structure, I realized it was nearly bent over. I thought, wow!
Then I started to open the door, and the wind just blew it out of my hand! The van shook at that impact and I quickly gathered my stuff, and shut the door, locking it.
Walking to the library, it really tousled my hair and nearly blew my mocha out of my hands.
So I hurried along and got inside. Phew.
I have happy news. I am being reassigned to another department within the library I work at. It is a wonderful opportunity for me to spread my wings and learn new things. I would be dealing mostly with Interlibrary Loans...so that'll be new. Plus, I'd be working as a team member with 2 others. I do laugh, though, because one of them used to be MY student assistant in my earlier days in that department! And now he's a full time staff. How cool!
In the meantime, during this transition, I will be training someone my stuff, and then once this person gets the hang of it, train the person who will fill in my shoes.
So it'll be an adventure. I will move to my new position sometime next month.
In the meantime, I'll be just busily doing cleaning-up and getting things little more organized so I'll be more prepared when training time comes.
And 20 years with this University...I stop and think, wow! I've come so far! I am truly blessed.
