Well today is my first day at my new job, and I’m currently sitting at my new desk, on my new (old, but new to me) laptop, craning my neck around my cubicle wall to occasionally glance out the window. This morning was full of introductions, tours of the building, and initial set-ups, and web training. Fun stuff! I have a few meetings this afternoon, and then my first day will be behind me. Seems pretty good so far, I’ve already had an invite in calender for the company Holiday Party on Friday, wooo!
Yesterday, the girls and I did more decorating of the house for Christmas, this time tackling the outside fence and front porch. We’re pretty happy with the outcome so far, but I think we are going to hang some more lights as soon as we figure out an outlet situation.
After the decorating, I finished unpacking my clothes and hanging them in the makeshift closet that Adrienne’s dad helped me put together. The one that came with my room is teeny tiny, so something had to be done about it, and thanks to one trip to the Container Store I was stocked with the makings of a new closet.
Pumpkin is trying to decide how she can make it to the open window, and I still need to buy a curtain to hang across there, but you get the idea. It definitely added a lot of space to my cozy room :).
The rest of the day was really the epitome of a lazy Sunday. I was in my pajamas by 6:00 relaxing on the couch with my roommates, and in bed by 10 pm. Today after work I’m going to try to figure out a gym situation. There is a LA Fitness (which I already belong to from home) about 10 minutes from my new house, and then there is a Bally Total Fitness right near work, which they will pay for. With my new 9-5 hours (I used to work 7-3:30) I definitely want to try the whole working out before work thing, it’s just do I want to work out close to home and commute to work or get the commute over with and work out close to the office. Decisions, decisions!
Alright well I’m off to meet more new people and hand in my new hire paperwork so I can get paid! Happy Monday, only 24 days until days off for Christmas!
