First Day Was A-Ok

I started my new job today. Things are going well so far. My commute has improved - I left home 50 minutes later and got home 1 hr 45 minutes earlier. And I actually have an office. I share it with two other people but it's nice not to be floating in a sea of cubes.

With the holidays and the stress of ending one job and starting another, I haven't had time to do much blogging. But I am hoping to get in a routine soon once again, and get back to visiting all my blog buddies.

And I had a nice surprise waiting for me when I got home today. The hand painted Poinsettia Art Card I had been lucky enough to win over at Chewy's blog arrived today and it is even more beautiful to see in person. Thank you Chewy!

Yeah for good first days! Of course you'll have more time for blogging, look at all that time saved in your commute. You can blog all that time. LOL

So does it have the new job smell? lol

Holidays are rough for blogging, even I'm guilty of taking a few days off!

Good news of the new job. - Oh, oh oh! You got the Poinsettia! (jumping up and down) That was fast.

Yeah! First days are always good to have under your belt and sounds like your environment is much more suitable for you! I got my card...aren't they so cool? I love mine too! Best thing of all is your commute time being so much less! I shouldn't say this, but my commute time is about 7 minutes! :o)

Hey Sassy - Good point! Actually, I'm hoping to start doing a little blogging on my lunch hour.

Hello Dawg! Thanks for visiting. Yes, the holidays are rough for blogging, especially after all that eggnog.

Hi Dykewife! I second that yay for shorter commutes!

Thanks Rubye Jean! Yes, so far so good. Working at a university has a lot of great perks.

Yes Chewy - I got it on Monday and it is beautiful! Thank you so much. It was such a nice surprise after my first day of work. Thank you so much!

Oh Ms. Creek - that is an awesome commute. Good for you! I'm hoping one day I will have a 'normal' commute, whatever that is. I still am going about 70 miles each way.

I used to hate a long commute and bought a house as close to work as possible. Close enough to walk in fact! But most of the time I drove.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
