My Work Space

A full week at the new job. I'm definitely feeling very positive about the position and the opportunity. I've spent the past week trying to arrange and clean the new space. The building hasn't been occupied in a few years so there was cleaning to be done. I am the only person to complete those tasks. Lucky me! It took me a few days to realize I was climbing an uphill battle. I was recognizing there were spider webs in places I thought I had cleaned. It was really puzzling me! I would move a piece of furniture to an area and see a bunch of cobwebs. I would knock the cobwebs down. A couple days later when I was working in the same area I would have to clean the corners and ceilings again. I was thinking..."I swear I just cleaned this a few days ago. Did I?" After having these conversations with myself nearly all day it dawned on me, the spiders had probably just came back and built new spider webs. It only took me three days to figure it out! So, I sadly had to put in the work order to kill all those little critters in the building. I feel bad because I know it's the food chain and they help keep other bugs out. However, I'm sick of them jumping on my head and getting caught in webs. It grosses me out.

Besides the spider infestation, things have been going well. Here is what things looked like a week ago when I walked into the space for the first time.

All the leads from the sites in the district came to unpack and arrange my space. I wasn't present for the unpacking; however, I was really thankful it was done. I kept most things the same.

 Puzzles/ Transportation

My favorite space. The library.

Homework Room/Writing Center



As you can see, I've been blessed with a very large space. 
I have lots of furniture but the shelves are empty.
Not quite sure how we are going to fill them.

I will be adding signs, posters, and bulletin boards from here on. Pinterest is a great resource for those creative things. I try to put my own creative twist when I swipe ideas. 

Now that the bare bones have been established, I will be switching gears to marketing and training. All this diversity within the job keeps things interesting. But I do miss the kids. Just a couple months of adult time, then I will be back to having my main focus be the kids.

That is work. All of this is what keeps me distracted from blogging. 
It's a good distraction.
But I still miss having the extra time to keep up with you all!
