Should I Be . . .

hurt? glad? relieved?

Monday marked my first full day in my new closet, err office I mean.  I have been more productive these last 3 days than I have in months.  Altho my office is in need of some MJ touches because it is full of electrical gadgets & my desk.

see & you all thought I was kidding!!!!

The issue is that I don't know how to feel about the "area" I moved from.  I wanted out because I couldn't stand all the negativity the girls have about our place of employment.  I am thankful to have a job & any of the extras are just that extras, I don't expect more.  I respect my superiors because last I knew that is what you are suppose to do.  I may not agree 100% with things, and I let it be known, but I don't bad mouth them for it. 

Since I have moved, due to addition of more nurses, I have noticed that they are spending alot more time together as a group.  We NEVER use to go to lunch together, and now they are.  They NEVER use to take breaks together, now they are.  You see a trend??  Are they celebrating me moving out of the area???  Do they just have some extra time that allows them to do this? 

Honestly, I don't mind because I am LOVING the peace and quiet my office brings - but I couldn't help the thoughts that ran through my head when I noticed this.

Peace & Pandora

Don't let them get to you. Enjoy your own little space---I know I would! And if you overhear them talking about lunch sometime, casually ask if they'd mind if you joined them every once in a while (but only if you want to).

Yes, definitely needs some MJ TLC in there. Then it will feel more like home away from home, LOL!

At my last job, it was 9 men, and me. I was the first woman to ever work at that company, and that was just FINE with me. With women comes drama. I hate the drama. I don't know, maybe I'm weird, but I've always had more men friends than women. Maybe because as a math/science student most of my classes were heavily demographed on the male side, who knows. You sound like someone I would be friends with, and the rest of them sound like people who would drive me crazy...Congrats on the new space.

Be "indifferent"...nothing silences caddy female co-workers quicker than indifference.

Works like a charm, every time! :)
