Back in the office

I'm back in the office today. I was supposed to go out in the field again today with the sales manager, but apparently he has too much going on to do that. So here I am finishing up my old work and trying to get everything ready for when the new person comes and takes over my current position. I'm getting excited! My first official day as an Account Executive is June 1st. Between now and then I will be spending 2-3 days in the office and 2-3 days out making calls. They ordered my business cards today so as soon as they are in, I'm set! I got a really good territory. It's loaded with businesses. For some reason, my manager, HH, feels the need to take care of me. I'm not sure why that is the case, but I'm ok with it and will not complain! I am a little nervous about the salary though - it is less than what I make right now and that worries me. Of course I do have the option to make more money since I will be making commission on any sale that I close, but it's still nerve wrecking nonetheless to know that if I don't sell anything - I'm gonna be broke! PRESSURE!

Ben had his home inspection yesterday. It was great! The only problem they found was that one of the posts on the balcony is lose and needs to be secured. The realtor had warned us that the inspector would find alot of problems although most of them would be no big deal, so I was prepared for a much larger list. Ben's going to ask the current owners to fix the post - and we're that much closer to the closing! Less than a month now!!!!

I'm feeling pretty boring... not much to talk about really. Speaking of boring, I was sound asleep on the couch at like 7:00 last night! I woke up long enough to watch Grey's at 8:00 then crawled in bed for good at 9:00. I'm such an old lady at times! I'll try to come up with something more interesting to write about next week.
