Yesterday I moved into my new office. I had a nice office in the middle of the building. I didn't have a window to the outside though and on cloudy or rainy days I kind of felt like I was in a little hole. My boss came along on Monday and told me he wanted me to move to a bigger office on the outside of the building. All day Tuesday I packed up all my desk items, files, drawings and Closeout Binders and moved on down the hall. I am now in a larger office and I have a lovely view of the woods. I love the light and brightness of the new space alot! It just makes you feel good!
This is where I spend almost the whole day just typing away and talking on the phone to owners, subcontractors and officials for our projects.
As you can see I have a lovely view beyond the parking lot. I love to look at the woods while I'm talking on the phone! I also have this lovely drafting table now. I can actually work on my drawings all sprawled out on the table now instead of folding them in half across my desk. This will be great when a subcontractor calls and I have to look at a drawing. It will also be great when I have to mark up drawings, which is usually 6 or 7 copies of the same thing! Gotta love it!
This is the woods and shrubs that I was talking about! Everything is so green right now. Today one of the guys was in my office and he said slowly turn around and look out your window there is a hummingbird right outside the window looking at you! I had a coral color top on today and I guess he liked what he saw!! Actually he was drinking water off the leaves of the boxwood outside my office.
It is so nice and quiet down at this end of the building too. At the other end the 2 girls in accounting are always yelling back and forth to each other. One of my project managers that was across the hall also has a hearing problem and was always yelling into the phone at his workers or subcontractors. I guess he thought they couldn't hear either! I have 2 of my favorite Project Managers on either side of my office now. It makes it easier for me to do their work too, they don't have to walk all the way around the building to get things to me. They said they are going to cut holes in the wall and have a pass through like the butlers used to have, that way they will never have to get out of their chairs-silly guys!!
Well I hope y'all liked the tour! Everyone have a lovely evening! Also thanks for all the congratulations and best wishes on our daughter, Jenny being pregnant! She called me today and said she is so tired, wait until the baby is born and she'll really be tired then! We are all so happy!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
