"Awesome!"

Beth's usual response to our questions is, "Uh, good." As in, "Beth, how was bowling today?" "Uh, good." She's busy now 6 days a week so we hear this a lot.

On Friday though, when she got home from her first day at work, we asked her how it went and she said, "Awesome!"

I haven't heard from her job coach (grrr!) but Beth has told us that she showed her how to fold boxes. And that folding boxes is hard.

She said she washed some dishes. When I asked her if she put them in the dishwasher or washed them by hand, she thought about if for a minute and said, "By hand."

She told us that she has to 'clock in' every day. And that they wrote her code down for her.

(You know, as I'm writing this I'm realizing... that first night she told me she had to put in her zip code. I thought that was interesting because more than one employee may have the same zip code. But Beth knows ours so I wasn't concerned. On day two, she showed us the code they had written down for her. It wasn't our zip code. So when they told her to enter a code, I wonder if she entered our zip?) Hmm.

So she's clocking in, folding boxes and washing dishes. I haven't heard much more than that. She goes back this Friday so I'll let you know if anything else happens!
