Ok, so here’s the thing. I have been spending my time state jumping and now I have started job jumping. I just started this new job six weeks ago and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. Not to mention, I have no idea what state I would like to end up in in order to plant roots. I have a year and a half to decide before my daughter begins high school. Once she does, she will need to finish her education in one school. It’s only fair to her because of my dragging her around everywhere. Since we have been back in the states, she has attended about 13 schools. I’m sure she is thinking to herself, I wish my mother would just stay put.
I’m already thinking about GS jumping again. I love my job and have made some very good friends in such short time. I walked into the place and pretty much took over as lead time keeper for 120 employees organizing the way time is kept. I am referred to as Princess Di and from the moment I walked in the door, they truly believed I could walk on water. I have never had that before in any job and trust me, I have had many. People come to me for answers to questions they could never get before. I have also taken the role of counselor. For some strange reason my office always seems to be filled with people all hours of the day. Its amazing how I can still get my work done.
I work with some of the most intelligent people I have ever come to know – Engineers, Hydrologists, and Biologists. I have learned that the most intelligent people are not very bright when it comes to the basics of life and how the simplest of things, when accomplished, can seem amazing to them. Maybe that is why they see me the way they do.
