The Job Is A GO!!

Well I haven’t been around much lately.  I’d say that I have nothing to say, but really I have SO MUCH to say.  I’ve been doing lots of projects, which really revs my motor.  Sewing, needlepoint, and some upholstery.  And . . . yes!  Flaky doctor came through with a job!!!!  I started Monday with watching some training videos, and I’m meeting with her today to sign a business agreement and pick up a load of files.  Basically, I’ll be working at home (perfect for me, I hate working with people) entering her paper files into an electronic system.  Some data entry, some scanning of files.  I needed a scanner, so I took the opportunity to buy the printer I always wanted, a color laser printer (with a sheet-feeder scanner).  It prints so beautifully!!!  It was a little pricey but hopefully I’ll make the money back.  Actually, I better make the money back or I’m a total loser!  I feel like posting a picture of the printer, I love it so much.  Ah, geekhood.

So, I’m so excited to start working, on my own, at home.  I’m such a project girl.  It’s like I told the psychiatrist, just set me loose on a pile of work, and I’m good to go!  I will be very happy doing this.  Just turn on the music and plug away.  I hope I don’t do it too fast.  Every time I finish a project I’m so sad.  This doctor is very technically challenged, though, so I think I’ll be providing her some IT Support, too.  We’ll see how it evolves.

Things are working much better in my head now that Spring has sprung, even though we still have some rain and even fucking SNOW is forecast for the weekend.  The extra light is doing wonders for me.  It’s just like a switch is tripped, saying “extra light, I am ok now”.  I still wake up a little depressed, but I don’t feel like I’m constantly on the verge of hospitalization like I did in the winter.  HOLY HALLELUJAH!!  With that, I’ll close and say “Peach out” and hope you’re all doing well!  Let me know!!

P.S. —  I forgot to say, I updated to Windows 10 after much resistance,  because even though I am a former serious IT Geek, I resist change.  And believe it or not, it’s not even killing me!  Thank you, Microsoft!  It’s not all fucked up like Windows 8.  Everything looks almost the same.  I can find my files.  The shortcut keys still work.  I am ok.  You will be too 🙂

  1. My husband is a certified Microsoft tech and I love Windows 10 (unlike most people, I really didn’t mind Windows 8.) More importantly, great job getting the job! It’s awesome, though I’ve missed seeing you around.

  2. That is SO great – working from home is the shizzle!
    I’m so, so, so proud of you for going for it!!!

    Your new color laser printer sounds fantastic and I know you’ll make the money back! I’m thrilled you’re feeling better. While I know you’re not leaping out of bed singing “The Sound of Music” soundtrack, you’ve come a LONG way (and don’t you know it!) This is truly magnificent news, Project Peach. Love you!!!! Keep us posted sooner rather than later – I’ve missed getting my dose of Bipolar On Fire!!!!!!! XOXOXOXOXOXO

  3. Congratulations on the job!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 I’m so happy for you. It’s ideal with you being able to work from home. Fantastic. Who know, it could turn into a part time/permanent thing once the data entry is finished.
