Back to Work

Monday, June 01, 2015

Every year our office manager takes the month of June off and this will be the 2nd year that I have covered the office for her. It isn't that the work is hard or that I wasn't an office manager/accounting supervisor for about 20 years but the fact that I do not do this on a daily basis.
I started the morning off by having to be there before 8 as the water authority does a test on our water quality every 3 years and I had to be there to let them into the manger's home which is attached to the office. She was scheduled to arrive at 8 but showed up about 7:50 so it was a good thing I got in about 7:40.
All of this is throwing a big wrinkle in my normal schedule which is to walk about 6:30 in the mornings for 90 min. Today I was out to walk by 5:30 and that seemed to work so will keep up this on the days I work. That gives me about 8,000 steps and almost 4 miles. It is too hot here to walk later in the day.
My first panic attack of the day came when I attempted to log into the computer. Oh my, I know I have the right password. What is the issue. Turned off the computer and brought it up again and realized when I did I had attempted to sign in on the wrong identity (she has 2 on the computer). Whew, glad it was something so simple.
I worked for nearly 5 hours and processed about half of the monthly checks that are coming in. Early in the month that will occupy the bulk of my time. As I do not do this job on a regular basis, I am not bonded SO I can only do all the data entry and copying and enter them into the log BUT I can't take the deposit to the bank. Crazy as I could make off with the checks doing this more than taking them to the bank, but that is good-saves me from having to make that trip-I hand it off to our President and he gets that job!!!
I guess we will see what tomorrow will bring. I will be covering thru July 3 for our office manager so by then should have it all figured out.

    emoticon was a success. You will get back into work mode and so glad you have this chance to be productive in another setting. I am sure all your flower gardens are just gorgeous by now.

    ”In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”
    – Tony Robbins

    I know that I have failed at consistency. Because I am not consistent, is the reason why I have failed at so many things from doing homework in high school, to exercising and eating right. If I had been consistent, I would have been at my goal weight a long time ago. So all I can say about myself is, all the rest has been excuses for inconsistency, and poor ones at that!
