Brain - Fried!

I'm here - just barely!
I've made it through my first 3 days of work - wahooey!
I'm totally brain-fried though. I'm so saturated with information I could burst. It is frustrating too. It is difficult for me not to know what I should be doing. I want to be able to start working and start being a contributing member right away - it is frustrating to me that I feel like I'm not now. I know this is normal but it's been so long since I've had to go through this I have to keep reminding myself.
It is also difficult to learn new ways, the culture of the company, etc.
It will come, I know, but I just want it to all come together now!
Thankfully the people all seem so nice.

Getting myself back to a schedule where I can have the time to catch up on blogging is something I need to tackle. I know most of you work full time and still manage to find time to blog, and daily. Geez, how do you do it? I need to get myself in a groove.
LOL - as an Executive Assistant I used to pride myself on time-management. Hope I slip back into that groove again FAST!

I was asked to join a local chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen too (I'm honored) and participate in a 2-day home tour of the chapter members the first week in December. I'm excited to have an opportunity to do a "show" again but, yikes, I need to get some inventory by then. When will I have time?

I'm sorry I've been neglecting you all with my reading and comments, but, most importantly, THANK YOU ALL FOR THINKING OF ME AND ALL OF YOUR WISHES FOR ME ON MONDAY!
Love ya all!

Be will all fall into place in due time. I usually write my blog when I get home from work for the next day and then just schedule it to post at 6:00 a.m. It seems to work well for me.

A lot of people don't blog daily too. For it to be enjoyable, it can't seem like do what works best for you. Your followers will always be here.

Beth, I am so glad you are making it through your first week just fine! I can so relate to wanting to jump right in.

I remember once (many years ago), I worked in a bookstore as a buyer for their gift boutique and as part of the job we each did customer service every day, which meant knowing the inventory including as many books as we could.

I was so frustrated when I didn't know everything after the first week and told the owner. He looked at me like I was crazy and told me that if I still felt that way after three months to come talk to him. Nothing like a little perspective for us perfectionists... ;)

You'll do wonderfully!! Hugs, Silke

I am so happy for you, even in your brain-fried state. I know you're overwhelmed, but it will seem like old hat before long.
