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.
