Wow... another week is over... whew! Today was spent in meetings almost ALL day! We had our section staff meeting from 8-9:15, then had to leave to go join a bunch of other people for a clinic-wide training, I rode over with co-workers to & from the meeting. We got back about 11:15 and I went down at 11:30 to assist my supervisor to help develop & update annual performance objectives. I feel bad for her in that she is a new supervisor, she has limited supervision herself and she's has a lot of expectations put upon her. For example, she was informed that everyone was to write their own goals and objectives, but when she called the person in charge of the appraisal system, she was told that the supervisor was the one that was supposed to write & develop them for her subordinates (so my supervisor has three sets to write). Anyway... we knocked it out this afternoon, and my co-workers were relieved that it was one less thing they had to do. My supervisor still plans to write her own up this weekend.
Anyway... that took up most of the afternoon. I *did* get to see one client that is going through some struggles and I called and talked to a couple other clients. Before I knew it, it was almost 5:30pm. Where does the time go?
I didn't even take a lunch break per se. Some of the nurses where I work were having a potluck, so they offered me some food...mmmm! I sat down for about 10 minutes while my boss was on the phone dealing with another matter.
I *did* call & make an appointment for my doggy Peanut. I need to find out if she's pregnant so I can figure out what to do next (i.e. who to have watch her while I'm on my cruise). If by chance she *isn't* pregnant, then she needs her annual shots. I'm going to take her in tomorrow morning. At least the Vet office isn't far from where I live.
Tonight has been filled with just doing chores. I stopped on the way home to pick up a salad for dinner (which grilled chicken), and then I've done up all my dishes & I'm also doing laundry. I've also been watching some tv. I'm looking forward to Halloween in Waikiki tomorow night... although I haven't even gotten my costume out to look at! I may be working on tile tomorrow too... we'll see.
Okay... time to sign off for another day... I haven't heard from my friends Bette & Walt, they are supposed to be on the Big Island right now. I hope they made it safely and are doing okay.
