January 3: Today was the first day back to work after ten days off...and what a doozy. I knew it was going to be one of those days where my head was in ten different places at once. I was coming back to a to-do list that I had before break...I now think that is not a good idea. That makes coming back to work not so enticing. Anways, we had a fabulous new Director of Alumni start and had a lovely reception for her. She is going to be a fabulous part of the team. I then spent the last half of my day learning more about the tasks I'll be doing for my new job. I'm not sure I posted about that...I'll be the Assistant Director of Development Operations. I've known for a while now, but it was finally official today. I'd explain what this change means, but I'm still learning - basically I'll be doing a lot of reports for fundraisers so they can do their jobs. Anyways - the day was finally over and I got to wander off to the Bennett Center - one of my favorite places at Gordon College. I never fail to see at least five wonderful people I know...and today was no different. I was first greeted by the wonderful smile of Lisa Logan! WHAT a treat! I lived with Lisa for a year before she ran off and married Jerry (another wonderful person I saw at the gym today). Lisa is just one of those people who always makes you smile...thoughtful, happy, wonderful...she's just cool. AND she mentioned reading my blog about my picture postings...she's the first one! So CLEARLY I had to document such an occasion. Also ... I must make a plug for her blog. It's simply fabulous.

Thanks for agreeing to being on thoughtsfromadumas, Lisa!
