The One Where I Realized It Has Been Over a Month!

Crazy huh? I mean seriously - August is in approximately TWO WEEKS! WHAT?! Didn't we JUST celebrate New Year's?

I have been at my new job for two and a half months already.  I stay extremely busy all day.  Well not ALL day - the first 40 - 50 minutes are pretty quiet, me trying to settle in and get a game plan going for the day.  Once the attorneys get here, we are in full go mode.  As you can imagine, I have had a lot of learning to do since I am out of my element in this position.  I'm a legal assistant.  I haven't done anything like that ever in the past - the closest I have come is when I was in high school I was admin for a real estate closing company.  Not the same thing.

So I felt swamped the first three or four weeks.  Now I feel like I have caught on pretty well.  Of course there will be lots to continue to learn as we delve into our cases but I am feeling more and more confident every day.

I am so much happier where I am right now.  Which, oddly enough, is one of the reasons I haven't really had the time to blog.  We have been non-stop since I switched jobs.  Yes I did get a fairly significant pay raise but not only that I have a much better disposition than I did at my last job.  I'm working out 3-4 nights a week, plus I am bowling one night a week with one of our friend couples and my dad.  Then the weekends have been pretty solidly booked for the past two months.

We will be catching up on all that soon.  My life lately has felt so much more complete - I feel so much happier and fulfilled. I don't dread going to work.  In fact, it is generally just the opposite! This past Monday I had taken the day off for a family vacation trip but we had to cancel our part of it because The Husband had to work. I almost went to work!! ALMOST.  =) I ended up spending most of the day with my sweet sister.  Really wonderful day!

So welcome any new comers - and HIIIII to everyone who has happened to stick around.  I want to be more present. I miss blogging and I am so happy that it will be a happier place for me and not such an escape =)

In the meantime, you really need to check this out:

Pentatonix won The Sing-Off (an acapella singing competition) a year ago and they were BY  FAR my favorite group.  I love them even more for The Wizard of Ahhhhs =)

Happy Friday all!!!

Ohhh I totally know what you mean!!!! I felt sooo overwhelmed and started to regret my decision to jump ship. But I love my new job. Not so much the job itself but the company... What they stand for... How they treat their employers, etc. Still not my dream job but I'm so happy I did it! :) :) :)

I wish I was as active as you are! I'm trying.. I'm trying... I keep complaining about my body and will work out for a few weeks and then just stop cold turkey. Sigh.... I really need to get into it! :)

And thanks again for sharing this video! For some reason I didn't think The Sing Off was still around. I never seem to see any advertisement on it! I'll have to keep my eyes peeled!
