Family Christmases are now over, so hopefully, I can get back to routine. Although, I got scheduled a normal 7-4 day at work on Jan 1, so that day is going to be a killer...

Uneventful Christmas, now the New Years countdown begins, and I'm trying to not get stressed over planning my party. It's annoying dealing with flaky people. I did just pick up a nice $50 bottle of champagne for the evening, though. Gonna wear my lucky new suit (got hired with it), have a three-course dinner, party in my hotel suite, then party in a swanky lounge/club across the street. With great company, that's what matters.

Flying out to Cincy next week for a day for the company that hired me. 7:10 AM flight ... OUCH! But it's all paid for by them. I can't think of a place I'd rather be than Cincy in January. High 24. :lol:

I just got back from Cincinnati to see the headquarters of my new employer and job shadow. I was very, very impressed by their 100,000 sq ft office building, complete with a huge gym, basketball court, food court, etc. The employees are all young and fun, 95% had to be under 40, with most in their 20s like me. They work hard and party hard, and we went out for happy hour, they have "Beer Fridays," etc. Just a wonderful, fun, growing company to work for. They said they interviewed hundreds of candidates before picking five, so I feel very fortunate! I can't wait to start making that money!

First week of being an adult over, but I still have work Saturday morning. Snow storm coming here, so I had to trade cars with my mom so I have her SUV to get to work. Other than that, apartment shopping. I do love my coworkers and job, though. Been dispatching truck drivers all over the country, finding trucks to cover loads, etc. It's a ton to learn in a short time. I've been learning the entire trucking industry and all the software my company uses and frankly, my mind is mush at this point. Need to let it all sink in. Here's my desk, I like.



What is everyone else up to?

We are back to work after a 16-day vacation (the first 2 really don't count--my wife had some kidney stones taken care of), 7 of which were spent on a cruise-ship in the Caribbean. Fantastic trip, and not too pricey, either. Everyone should try to do one once in their lifetime.
