Letting the cat out of the bag

At this moment, I am getting settled into my first day of orientation at my new job!

That's right - I've been holding out with some big news. I haven't posted much lately, and it's because there's been a lot going on behind-the-scenes that I couldn't really share. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind - I've been looking for a new job for months, and had a few interviews that didn't pan out. I've been feeling a bit discouraged, but I really truly believe that everything happens for a reason - if something didn't work, it was because something better was going to come along. That's easier to say than to believe in sometimes, thought... Then, out of the blue, doors started opening and things started falling into place. I received a great job offer, and I'm making a move that, I think, will be very good for me career-wise in the long term (and is a good immediate change).

I took a week off between jobs, and fully intended to do lots of cleaning, cooking, organizing, etc. Instead, we got hit with a hurricane and then C got into a minor car accident (not his fault, he'd like to point out) and hurt his back - so he ended up home with me all week! I may not have gotten as many "things" done as I wanted to, but I spent a very relaxing week at home with my husband and my cat, watching movies, cleaning closets, and taking naps. I think it was just the recharge that my batteries needed before I start my new position.

So, here we are: Day One. I've been having some hilarious (-ish), anxiety-ridden dreams lately: forgetting to go to my new job, forgetting to wear pants, getting lost and showing up late.... thanks, brain. Here's hoping for a great first day. I'm sure I'm doing something thrilling like filling out paperwork. I'm the new girl with no friends again - super! Wish me luck.

I'm not sure what my schedule is going to be like just yet, or exactly what my new position entails - but I promise to get back to regular posting as I get settled. My blogging fingers have been itchy lately. I have some great mental posts written... time to actually get them out there.

Have a great Monday!

Thanks!! It's been quite a week, and the transition is feeling rough, but it will be good in the end :)

Lindsay said...

Thanks! :) And... yeah, they do. HA! My cat's is short for Macintosh, though - it was his name when we got him.

Lindsay said...

Thanks lady. And yes, he does... he doesn't like to be in things ;) haha!
