I officially started my new job on Monday. So far so good. They are easing me into things slowly which is very nice, as often I have had the experience of, "Great! You're here! Do your job NOW! I don't have time to help you figure it out!" Not so at the new place. Let me tell you after my last three weeks at the previous employer I am ready for some down time.
I did not clock how many hours I put in those last three weeks, but two of the last three weeknds involved working, and nearly every evening involved at least one or more hours of work after the kids went to bed. That also does not count all the fretting I did inside my pointed little head when I was not working. I worked until the last minute, I did not even start packing up my office until about 4:15. Luckily it did not take too long as I never really brought in a lot of stuff since I spent so little time actually in the office.
Now that it is over I am letting go of the crankies, and last night was the easiest time I have had falling asleep in over a week, and I slept well the whole night. Thank goodness. I was beginning to fear I had developed some kind of sleep disorder, but then I let go of the crazy thoughts and realized it was likely just my reaction to all stress and anxiety.
Now I feel like I used to when the semester was finished in College and Grad School. I don't know quite what to do with myself now that I don't have work to do in the eveings as this is a job that stays at the office at the end of the day.
Perhaps it will mean more consistent blogging. I hope that it means more consistent exercising.
