I get these emails from Ancestry letting me know when they found something interesting in one of my trees. I used to get them and heave a sigh because I didn't have the money. Now, I have the money, but I have no time. :heavy sigh:
Speaking of time, we're supposed to be implementing a new thing at the office where we schedule our tasks throughout the day. It's a fine idea. We are all exceptionally busy all day and working more efficiently is always a good thing. Except for when it comes to my job it's probably pissing into the wind. You see, I am point man on answering the phones. And they ring A LOT. And just about every call is critical. Now, if I was just answering the phones and passing the call along, scheduling my day might be doable, but I'm answering the phones, then a) dealing with the calls myself, b) taking lengthy messages and either sending the info through on chat or in email, c) hunting down people when it's critical... you get the picture. I will attempt to schedule, though. Actually, now that I think about it I already do to some extent. I have to or I'd already be insane.
And my phone is the wonky one at the office. Woohoo. They keep saying they'll fix it, but no one has time, so I deal. Improvise, adapt, and overcome. Hoorah.
I made the decision when I started working that I wouldn't talk about the specifics of where I work. It keeps my online life separate from my work life. That and I already know they researched me online before they hired me, so they could be reading this right now. :waves: Besides, I don't necessarily want the people who've been nasty to me on the phone to connect there with here. (They still could if they tried really hard, but why make it easier?)
We bought a new mattress on Saturday. I'd like to say I love it. :shrug: I'm getting used to it.
And with that, I'll let you go because it's just about time to get ready for work. See ya in the funny papers. ;o)
