Monday in the office
It was cold this morning. I bicycled to work for the first time, and my fingers hurt when I got there. It took a few minutes for them to warm up again.
Most of what I did today was further preparation for Lunch and Learn. I made place cards for the guests who will be joining us from Sarah’s ESL class, created the directional signs to lead guests into the building, retyped a flowchart and made copies of it, and assembled some information on Bhutan onto one page and made copies of that. I also tried and failed, twice, to use an inkjet printer to print on dot-matrix sticky labels. (It feeds just fine, I just can’t get the text to line up right with the labels.)
However, I did do one other thing that was fairly interesting. I learned how to enter refugee data in our database program, and how to create case files in hanging file folders. I know this doesn’t sound exciting, but these were my first real responsibilities. Baby steps, I guess.
I stopped by Walgreens to pick up more food on my way home, but it turned out I didn’t need it. Marion was generous enough to prepare dinner for me as well as the boys. We had bacon-wrapped round pieces of steak, potatoes, carrots, salad, and crescent rolls. It was very good.
