The Big Anouncement at Work

So what was the big deal the other day? Did I get a raise? NO. Did I get fired? NO. Are they closing our office? NO. Our Division of McGraw-Hill, Glencoe which publishes materials for Applied and Core subjects in the secondary and post secondary school markets has just been merged with The Macmillan Division which published materials for Core and Applied in the primary school markets so we will have a preK-12 presence. And they are calling this, The McGraw-Hill School Solutions Group. what does this mean? We ll otehr than gaining a few new titles and probably losing some others, not a whole heck of a lot. It means something to the investors and it means something to those folks whose positions have been eliminated or who have been promoted. But as far as daily work flow goes, I still have 12 chapters worth of photos due by September 15, no relief there.

I had a photo shoot this morning. Shot at a site where they are building one of those house foundations whre the forms are made of insulating styrofoam. They were drilling the holes to put in the geothermal climate controls. Friday I have to be back there at 7 am to shoot the concrete as it is being poured into the forms. Can we say COMPANY REIMBURSED MILEAGE? I think we can. Of course that means I have to leave my house by 5:30 am to get there but such is life. Driving the 200 miles down to Southern MO later that night ought to be fun. I think I'm going to bag staying in a tent that night and just find a nice cheap motel.

Aww... no raise.

Mergers and investors are never good news. I hope the changes won't get too drastic.
