I'm beginning to notice that every morning it's more and more difficult to get myself out of bed. That's not me. Normally I am awake prior to the alarm going off and getting out of bed has never been a struggle. I realize on a daily basis that it is my job that is doing this to me. I know a lot of people would welcome coming into work and sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours and not do a darn thing, but honestly I can't handle it. It's not rewarding. It's not challenging. It's not fun. I've been through the entire Web, twice. ; -)
If someone asked me my dream job (aside from crocheting half a day and working horses the other half) I would say to stand at the entrance of a warehouse the size of a football field and open the door to see nothing but stacks of paper and for someone to tell me your new job is to organize "this". As nuts as that might sound, bringing order to that chaos would thrill me to the ends of the Earth.
Because I had my resume out on Monster, I often still get emails from recruiters and yesterday I had a very interesting one... Too often they are for positions in other states and contracts lasting only 6 months. This one, however, was quite different. Located in the same city I work in now; 24 month contract and the description of the job reads like this: "Looking for contractors to sort through and file over 3 million documents." Is this me or what?? I am going to contact the recruiter today. The first chance I have with my current manager I am going to ask him his plans for me. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt and allow him the opportunity to tell me what my future looks like.
I spent most of last night in front of my DH's computer. A friend is helping me figure out why it keeps locking up. Last night he remoted in and found quite a few updates for Windows and such, so I was up till 10 installing them. This morning we were so anxious to check out the computer and it ran great for about 6 minutes and then froze up - again. Le Sigh. We are both thinking this particular hard drive tower will make target practice before too long.
I hope everyone is having a great week. You guys have been pretty quiet out there... Miss reading your posts!
