First day back at work….

My first day back at work started uneventfully. However, by the end of the day I had accumulated enough work to keep me busy into next week. Most of the tasks are straight forward and I’ll knock them off without any problem. There is one though that is likely to be a serious pain in the buttocks. I am supposed to transfer the data from one of our spreadsheets into someone else’s spreadsheet. I do a lot of that and usually it is not a problem. The sheet in question is radically different in format and style from ours and it’s protected ! It has numerous merged cells and cells with extraneous stuff in them; I have tried to add lines and it won’t allow me to do so ! I won’t be so bold as to say I know everything there is to know about excel, but I do know a lot; seems to me that this sheet was deliberately designed to be difficult to use. From what I can figure I will have to move the data cell by cell and since I cant’ add lines, I will have to use tabs for pages. ARRRRG !

I noticed that my room-mate did not come in this morning. She had been out the week prior to my absence ’cause her baby was sick. I had noted that she also seemed to be ill at ease. She was young and new and her position was a newly created one. My opinion is that I don’t think anyone is entirely clear about what the position is all about. Of course that’s just my opinion, I am not a supervisor or manager. Anyway, I was told by a co-worker that she had been fired. I asked what happened; apparently that had been a verbal altercation of some sort with another employee; a rather high strung princess who is the CEO’s sister in law.

Ok, enough of that stuff. I did well today in my on again off again quest to loose weight and be healthy. I walked the stairs in our building twice today and did a three mile walk after work with Sweetous. The temptation was there to skip the walk, but I did’nt. I also avoided eating any candy or junk food at work today. Now, I will surf the web ’til I get tired and go to bed.
