Vacation is over and i am back to work at the location i bitch and moan about all the time. Difference is, i am going back with a completely different attitude.
While temporarily transferred to another location, i was given affirmation from co-workers and bosses that i am a good worker and i got along well or very well with everyone, so i am confident now that most of the issues i was having are indeed related to the boss.
Plus, i learned a lot about the job itself.
Going from an institutional setting where bosses take care of all the background stuff to a community inclusion setting where we have more involvement in the day to day running of things has left me confused a great deal of the time. Where i started, to this place in Kenmore where the boss doesn't like to give direction, she just expects us to all know our job and get it done has been a challenge.
At the place i was temp transferred to, they were a transition house when it first opened, so the structure there is somewhere between the institutional and community setting. Ideal for me and with bosses who are accustumed to giving more firm direction, i thrived.
In that, i feel a bit reborn....

First night, met up with friends Chris & Kim for dinner in Market Square. I love how some friendships can just pick up where they left off -- trust, love, compatibility all remains. Miss them both dearly.
Stayed with our friend, Linda. She is generous and kind -- real old school southern hospitality. She says we are good houseguests, but i think after a week, she was looking forward to having her house to herself again.
Within the first day, i missed Knoxville enough to want to move back. We even looked at houses. Man, our house would go for $300,000 in the 4th and Gill neighborhood
We toured all our favorite places to go and to eat... even going to El Charro twice!
On the way home, we stopped in Covington, KY and went to the Newport Aquarium, overnighted in Columbus, OH and went to the zoo.
We also made a side trip in the Cleveland area to Trader Joe's... damn, i wish there were one here. Knoxville is getting one... another reason to want to move back?
My mom came to visit this past weekend. Yes, you can blame her for the lousy weather -- she has the worst luck when she comes here. We went to Graycliff... interesting on a blustery day!!
I go back to work tomorrow. Today, i go to the dentist. It's really over. I have to go back......... Great while it lasted!
