New job is going great, a bit on overload these days. So much to learn plus have been going to old job to continue with the training there. Should be done with old job "stuff" end of January as I am still doing the year end taxes and W-2's etc. New girl is not confident to handle those tasks.
Watched a video at the FAA about the Challenger Aircraft explosion, very interesting. It was basically an event that led to the new "safety standards" for air transportation. I will have to share some of the highlights next time we are together.
Busy with all of the holiday events, shopping, baking...etc. I love this time of year but I vow to start with the planning and shopping much earlier next year as I am WAY behind!
Taner is loving his job at Buckhill and I am loving my job at the FAA. People are all so nice and it is certainly a whole different world working for the governement. I have been in training mode since I started, then I get to do hands on, then more training, then hands on and so on....I am catching on but everything is a darn acronym, no one speaks in sentences and that is the hardest to absorb....not quite sure what everyone is talking about so I go to my acronym cheat sheet (yes they really do have one) and look everything up so I can understand the lingo. Of course they all tease me that I will be talking the same way a year from now.
Hope everyone is doing good, eating great, and dodging the flu!!!
Take care all!
Love ya!

Glad to hear that you are surviving over there. How exciting to be learning new things ... and at the same time surviving the hustle and bustle of the season!

How exciting that the brain can
still absorb new things! If I got
a job, wouldn't last a day! But I
console myself with memories like a
comment by a gal who was training me in for ex. sec. She told my boss to be that she only has to tell me things once. Those days are long gone. Enjoy the new job
and the season. Beautiful white
Christmas in Brainerd. See you sometime on the 20th. dk
