Musing No. 82 – Drained.

I am finally coming up for air after an insanely busy two weeks!

Late last month I was offered a wonderful opportunity to begin working with a well-respected financial institution. Considering the private nature of the information I will have access to I had to jump through what seemed like never ending hoops to thoroughly check my background; and understandably so!

I am so thankful for the opportunity especially within the current economic climate. The financial repercussions for my family are HUGE. That being said, adjusting to working an eight to five job again after working as an independent contractor has been somewhat of an adjustment. Last Monday was my first day and I am still getting used to the routine of sitting still for 8 hours straight. When coupled with my hour plus commute each way I came home a very tired girl.

But thankfully, the hour plus commute is a thing of the past! We have finally moved!!! We are within a few miles of my job and only a few more to Hubby’s campus. No more long drives to get to the nearest convenience store much less a decent restaurant! No more feeling smothered by having family seemingly on top of us!

We were able to move into our new home last weekend which means hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will have an ‘adult’ themed dinner party!

Eva is one happy girl! Cheers!
