Well I have now been with my new job for a little over a week. The verdict is....I'm not sure! I do like it, but I feel so totally unprepared and lost, which is the norm according to my coworkers. My time has been spent reading for my training (which starts in January by the way...JANUARY), shadowing visits with coworkers, shadowing in court with coworkers, long drives for transporting children, etc. For the most part, there is never a dull moment. We have a lady who is leaving at the end of the month so my supervisor has me helping her with her monthly visits. By myself. I have my first one tomorrow morning and it would have to be with the person who tried to pull one over on me when I called to set up the visit today. Nice. Oh well - it will be fine - my supervisor reassured me that "there is no way I can screw up a visit." We'll see about that. :) Ok well that's all for now - if you have any burning questions about my job, leave a comment!

I start my new job tomorrow - Child Welfare Specialist for DHS. Am I excited? Somewhat. Am I nervous? That would be a YES. I know it will be fine, especially since the first few weeks are training and I won't actually have my own cases until at very least a little over a month from now. It's just the newjobIdon'tknowanyoneorwhatImasupposedtodowithmyself blues. 10 points if you got that the first time without having to read it again. I will let you know how it went. Say a little prayer for me!

Also - Laurie - I got you e-mail and your dress is STUNNING! You are going to be a gorgeous bride :)

The end.
