Oh gosh...I think I might forget how to do this. It's been a while since I've posted and I feel so "out of the loop". I haven't had any time to browse through your blogs. I really miss that.
My last day of work was Saturday but Masterchief was asked to work till this Friday. They kept a handful of Senior HP's to finish up. This outage wasn't nearly as hard as past ones. I grew very tired for sure but was able to keep the pace for the most part. Remember my last post about how I was to move up to be a Junior HP? Well I did all the testing...and did it well if I don't say so myself but the final signature was not to be had in the end. The required 6 months experience is usually waived when the supervisors approve of your work but we have a new RPM (Radiation Protection Manager) now and I assume he goes by the book. I have been doing this work since 2009 but since we only do two outages a year my accumulated time only came to 4.5 months. With this outage under my belt I should have no problem moving up next Spring. Since I already completed the training I should be able to move up without having to do it again.
Here are a couple of pictures taken of me while at work. There are cameras everywhere in that place and once in a while the house tech will take some pictures and send them to us.
So....we are in New Jersey until this Saturday morning when we will then head up to PA to visit with my family for a couple days. Then we will be homeward bound. We miss our home so much. We will get home in time to have Thanksgiving with some very good friends. Can't wait!
Let's get on with the stitchy pictures....
On my last day off we ran up to Glen Mills, Pa to The Strawberry Sampler to pick up the two pieces I was having framed. I suggested that Masterchief drop me off at the shop while he took the car for an oil change but for some reason he wouldn't agree to that. Hmmm....I don't get it.
I am forever grateful to my stitchy friends that went with me to the shop. They helped me pick out these frames. I love the detail in this one. This is "I Sew'd My Heart", a freebie from Heartstring Samplery.
Next up is "My Ways" by La d Da.
Nancy once again for lending me this chart!
That's about it friends. I will spend the next few days catching up and commenting on your blogs. Thanks for hanging in there.
