I think I am back now..lol  yeah    I think you could call it being AWOL smhair
 
Just wanted to drop in and say I'm still breathing  smilewinkgrin    Leaving my old position to the new position has been exciting and kinda difficult.  I have worked many hours sometimes up to 14 hours in one day getting everything straight in my head.
 
Instead of backaches now I'm getting headaches looking at the computer screen all day.  I'm also having to go take a workshop on Excel,  I know it well but not well enough.  I'm up early searching the web for information on Auto Sort... eyes    It might be my downfall for wanting to be over prepared.. yeah
 
I have missed everyone but now I'm back in the comfort of my family in cyber space yeah

Don't forget to take breaks from the ball and chain computer (lots of stretches). Hope you enjoy the new position after the initial learning process.

Goodluck with the new position, Laurie. Hope it goes really well for you. Are you just on the computer now instead of the box moving?
Fill us in on the details, golitho

Heres the details on the new job.
 
Yes I'm still in the warehouse but with the weather so cool now its a blessing.  Before I was inventory "RTS" Return to Stock" of components for movies you would buy at wal-mart.
 
Our company did alot of laying off but being in RTS I was safe I was the only person in the warehouse who knew how to do my job.  Job Secuirty.  Then buisness got heavy and they had to fill depleted positions.  So I applied for all promotions through out my company.  I was acually offered 3 promotions.  I chose the one that was not cut during the lay off, thinking it could be cut again when it slows down.
 
The one I chose.  A supervisors position with only about a dozen people.  I keep telling myself I only need one more promotion and I get air conditioning. yeah   
 
This is what I do.  NO MORE lifting boxes!!! smhair    I sit at a computer and submit job orders to be filled.  So PAlady if you want a copy of True Blood I would be the one sending the guys out to get it and bring it back so I can have my team put shipping labels on it.  Thats what I do all day is email other departments telling them to hurry up with stocking so I can get the orders out.  Trying to fill some orders take alot of time and effort its like a needle in a haystack.
 
Yes I stand and stretch alot I will acually go and help lift some boxes with the team so I can get the muscles warmed up.. turn    Its does come with CP which I don't think will ever go away.  Sitting at the computer strangely enough causes my kidneys to hurt.  I wonder if there are attatchements that I can get for that??????
 
Ok I gotta get ready for work.  Only think I HATE about the job is I work noon to 8 pm.  Terrible hours!!!

How good is your chair, or how good is your posture in it? Maybe you're scrunching your poor kidneys. My joints get stiff and sore if I sit for long, I reckon a good break and those stretches will have to be factored in to your day. But great to hear the details and I assume with more responsibility comes more money? So well done, goodluck to you Laurie, golitho

Laurie,
There are lots of various attachments you can get for chairs - and a lot of different chairs. For me, a chair makes all the difference! If I was working full time now I would even invest in my own if the company wouldn't buy it. And they're not always the most expensive chair with all the bells and whistles; last one I got was $99, but I still use a variety of cushions. So experiment, but if you're sitting all day you need good ergonomics! yeah

For a minute when I was reading your post I was thinking your were going to send me the guys who star in True Blood! shocked smilewinkgrin
Wishful thinking, I guess! tongue turn smilewinkgrin

Congrats on the new job!!

Hugs,

PaLady
