Work has changed a little, but not much. I am working less hours, in fact, today I started working the day shift. I think this will give me some time to get out in the evenings, find something to do.  I got a new boss starting January first, I finally spoke to him on the phone for the first time on January 25th. Still have not met with him in person. But, I guess if there were any problems, he would want to see me.  I renewed my welding card today, good for another 6 months.  Our senior man retired last week, so now I am the senior employee in our work group.  We are having a little trouble filling our on-call schedule, because we are now one person short. The company has not posted for the guy who retired, and we are concerned that if we cover all the on-call, they will be in no hurry to replace him. The three of us remaining already take more on-call than our contract requires, and nobody wants any more. We are all in  our 50s, and don't have the stamina that we used to have, need some sleep at night.  One thing that is weird, there are three of us left in our work group, the other two guys have a new supervisor, who is stationed in a big town 45 minutes east of our building, and my new boss is stationed in a big town 40 minutes west of us. I don't know why they did it that way, part of the reorganization, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. But I guess it doesn't have to make sense to me, I just have to do my job.
