Well, it appears that I have survived my first week as a regular employee at Citigroup. I didn't expect to see much overtime this soon, but managed to put in a bit this week. Sadly, most of it was around the 2400 to 0200 timeframe...
Nobody likes to work it, but it's a necessary evil in info tech. I'm not going to complain about it however. I'm not even going to gripe about the overtime pay that I missed out on because of the change in my status. It was babysitting, pure and simple, and done from the comfort of my office at home.
Ariba! It's the weekend. Finally! Time to rest and relax... except tonight is the "official" birthday sleepover for my daughter. So instead of sleeping, I'm up blogging and hoping that the ceiling doesn't come crashing down. Well, they seem quiet enough right now, but I'm expecting screams at any moment due to the scary movies that they're watching right now.
I can't believe that my daugher is fourteen years old. The years do fly by! I pray that the next few years aren't as rough for us as it has been for other friends of ours with older children. The war stories that they tell are frightful.
