snapdragon76: this is made of win and awesome (Default)
Again, sorry for the lack in updates. I keep telling myself I'm going to do it, but other things happen and it doesn't get done.

Some things are still the same in many ways. Work is still pretty much in transition for the time being. Since the people from HealthFirst haven't permanently settled in to our building yet, things are somewhat relaxed in atmosphere. Our supervisor isn't one who is super strict about a lot of things. I don't know how that will change when they do move in. Hell, I may be gone by then. I've got almost a month to go yet.

I did make friends with the new lady in our room. Her name is Lisa (Lisa no. 2 as a matter of fact since we have an established Lisa in there) and she's very nice. She's been in Florida since August and has been working for MIMA/HealthFirst Medical Group for six months. She was originally in registration, but she wanted something different so she moved into our department. It seems like a good fit for her. She learns fast and has been helping with keeping everything caught up.

Her and her husband moved from North Carolina, not far from where we'll be moving to in Tennessee. She has a daughter that still lives in that area who just recently got married. I'm glad I got to make friends with her.

Our moving plans are still going forward. I think once I quit my job, I'll be more motivated to pack things away since I'll have more time during the day and I tend to work better when I'm under a time crunch. I don't know why that is, but I was like that in school as well. My mom told my one aunt who lives here and she just said that 'people need to do what they feel they need to do.' It's a pretty non-committal response if you ask me, but that the way she is. Mom is going to call my other aunt ostensibly tonight and tell her.

Yesterday, mom and I went to the Warbird Airshow that is held every year nearby and met up with [profile] cosmic_reverie while there. We went on a Huey helicopter ride which was totally awesome! Mom and I volunteered to be in the gunner's seats which faced sideways out the door. We were securely strapped in, so there was no risk of us falling out or anything. I was able to take some video while onboard:

We watched the air show afterward and it was quite the spectacle. I took a ton of pictures.

I did manage to get a partial sunburn on my legs since I missed a few spots with the sunscreen. So now I have patchy red spots on my knees and upper legs. At least I wear long pants to work.

I did a strand test for my henna and it turned out really well, so I have high hopes for the rest of my hair come Saturday. I'll post pictures once complete.

As to the title of the entry, Laura asked me what my call sign would be. I thought for a minute and said it'd probably be Dragon Lady since I like dragons and was born in the Year of the Dragon. I kinda like it!

Dragon Lady signing off.
