First Week at Work

BQ 060108

Whew!!! It has been one crazy week. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments and well wishes on my first week at work. It was a good week and everyone seems really nice and friendly. The building I work in is huge, and its like a gigantic maze…so I spent most of the week lost and wishing I had a GPS to carry around with me. I currently have an office to myself, which is nice, but they may be moving someone else in there soon. I love my new boss, and I think this position is going to be fabulous. I am just exhausted after working, then going to the gym, then going to school everyday. I didn’t even get a chance to check my email until yesterday really. I am hoping this next week will be a little calmer, although I will still be going from work to the gym to school (and thus having 14 and a half hour days basically all week). I hope everyone can bear with me though that my posting and emailing may be few and far between for a little while. I haven’t even stitched all week! Yikes!!! But, on Monday (Memorial Day) I did do a little stitching on Barnabee’s Quest, as you can see. I got started on the specialty stitches that surround the gazing ball in the middle. I hope to make a little more progress on it soon.

I’ve also had the day today to relax a little and do some stitching. I chose to stitch a little on my May block for Red Thread, since I am behind. I had hoped to get this done before the end of the month, but that didn’t really happen. I am close to being finished with it though.

Eric went to a photography workshop for the day today, so I’ve just been stitching and watching Style Network and doing a bit of laundry today. It has been lovely! He should be home in a little while and he’ll be making our Sunday Night Burgers – no idea what sort of twist he’ll put on them tonight! And, yes, to answer the question, he does grill them.

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend, and you’re ready to start a new month and a new week!

I am grateful for a day of rest.

  5. I am so happy that things are turning out well with your new job. Hope that it continues to fulfill your wishes. Barnabee’s quest is coming along beautifully. I can’t imagine where you had any time to stitch at all

  7. You’re making good progress on both of your WIPs. You know how much I like Barnabee’s Quest and I really like the maypole on your Red Thread block, too. Congratulations on your first week at work! I can’t believe you’re getting through those long days, with time at the gym and school. You’re a superwoman!
