So - the job.

I'm now a rep for an electrical cable company.

Can you get any further away from kitchenware?
I think not.

I've had just over a week working there, and while the first week left me feeling more life a fish out of water than anything else. This week, I did a few trips, and got to see some of the new scenery - which was great! and I guess just began to get my head around what i was supposed to be doing.

We deal with three types of cable - House, Marine and Auto.... so, i get to go around to all the Marine places, all the contractors and electricans. Makes for alot of variety - but also for alot of learning!
I'm beginning to understand the marine and auto side of things - but when I've had to talk to the contractors... yeah, no idea. And I'm trying so hard not to have that blank look on my face. Sometimes I probably pull it off too well, and that just makes it all a whole lot worse.

Anyway... I'm surviving, and enjoying the new challenges, and so looking forward to God showing me where this is going to go. Right now, the picture is just a little sketchy.

happy weekend to all.
And Mr Ed - hope you are having a fantastic holiday! Where are you????

Yay for the job - this one sounds like a keeper so far. We are in Lake Jackson, Texas - my older daughter moved here about 3 weeks ago. We will be here a few more days - kind of a working vacation with various projects to complete for them. ec

Sounds like a great time - and your daughter is certainly blessed to have you around to help out!

Enjoy it all.

Wish you the best in learning your new job. It does sound a challenge though challenges help to keep life from getting boring.

CJ, you must be so very busy learning the Business, the in n outs (like Co-axle), Amp ratings, thickness, materials n all, never mind getting to know all the customers -

Bet it's heavy lugging the stuff around-

Hope you're doing well n we hear from you soon!
God Bless
