Week 1, Done!

Well, I made it through my first week of the new job.  It is a really mentally challenging job.  For a brief moment this week, I thought I might be in over my head.  Then I remembered that I have felt that way before, and everything always worked out.  I also remembered that my boss never would have hired me if he thought I was incapable of doing the job.  He has been super supportive and keeps reminding me that learning what I need to do is going to take time.  I think it is helpful that my team members are so calm and are willing to take the time to teach me and answer my questions, even ones that I have already asked.  I already love the atmosphere of the company and kindness pervades the company through and through.  

It is nice to be at my weekend.  I could not wait to get home to my little furry girl.  She is adjusting well and I was happy to see had eaten her breakfast this morning.  We had a couple days this week where she did not touch her food during the day, so I was worried.  However, all seemed to be well today.  She gave me lots of kissies when I walked through the door.

This evening I needed to run my errands.  I put Liesl in the car as my ride along and off we went to Trader Joe's.  TJ's has some of the yummiest things around and I just love their snack foods.  I am all stocked up now.  I also went to Petco to stock up on Liesl's food.  She loves the chicken stew from Wellness and I was down to my last half of a can.  Yikes.

On the way home, I stopped at Marshall's because I need a couple of new professional outfits for work.  Marshall's is hit or miss and tonight they had some really nice items at a good price.  I also picked up a new golden retriever sized bed for Liesl.  (she likes to stretch out.)  Speaking of dog beds, did you know Serta makes dog beds?  I saw one at HomeGoods a few weeks ago.  They run about $70 there.  But I digress.  So I am happy that I got to have a little fun shopping.  It has been a while.  

Now best of all, I can stay home for the weekend and hopefully get rid of this bug and this awful sounding cough.  Other than taking Liesl for walks and going to church, I am in for the weekend.  It is a good weekend for dog snuggles and reading books.

Congrats Patti. I have been thinking of you and the furbaby and wondering how things were going. Her little routine is off but she will learn the new one and adjust just fine. Isn't it great to have 2 uninterrupted days with doggies!? Feel better...I'm on week 3 of my bronchial stuff.
