Thoughts from the employed

I don't know if I can truly express how happy I am about this job. The market has been so tough and in just a few short weeks I've seen the amount of available jobs dry up right before my eyes. It was truly a lesson in patience. I am so thankful! I've spent the morning figuring out my train pass/schedule and also train parking. There's a lot involved to become a commuter! After not working for six months a lot will soon be changing. (I'm not complaining.) Below are just a few:

  • My attire. Unfortunately for my husband, I haven't been dressing my best. Think sweat pants, pj pants, t-shirts, sweatshirts and Uggs or slippers with everything, 24-7. Oh, and I'll have to start wearing a bra. (TMI? Sorry!)

  • My Monday morning shopping routine. I love shopping on Monday, picking up everything we need for the week. And the stores are practically empty.

  • Doing random errands and being able to go to the mall or anywhere else I want to go.

  • Hanging out with the dogs. (Crumley is my homeboy.)

  • Getting the mail is usually the highlight of the day for me...I know it's sad.

  • Transportation. I am already used of using very little gas but I will soon be taking the train downtown every day.

  • My menu plans. I still want to cook but I'm not sure if it will be as routine as it has been.

  • Getting up early. I don't sleep all day but I usually get up around 8:00, sometimes 8:30.

  • Checking my email, Facebook and Perez Hilton 1,000 times a day. This will probaby be the hardest change of all! (Facebook Scrabble friends, please don't abandon me!)

I could stand to learn some Scrabble patience! Don't worry, I'm not going to abandon you! : )

I ought to follow your lead on the dressing-nicer front. But I probably won't. :)

Bras are totally optional for folks who don't leave the house. I fully "support" that. ;-)
