No girl can start a NEW JOB without a new pair of shoes, maybe a few shirts, definitely a few cute sweaters to keep her warm when the men of the office turn the A/C on full blast, a cute skirt...and who knows what else will catch her eye!
Yes, yes, ladies and gents, this gal has officially accepted an offer with a wonderful company which will remain anonymous for the time being. I accepted a Financial Analyst II position and am excited to put my Masters degree to work! I don't start for a few weeks, so in the meantime, I will be cleaning, organizing, working out and enjoying fresh air because all of those things will be limited in the very near future. I will be sure to keep you all posted on my progress and feelings.
As of right now, I am beyond excited, but I am also a wee bit sad. J-man and I finally have a great routine down and now I am throwing a huge wrench in it. I am hoping to find a babysitter who can come to the house and get him off the bus, allowing him to maintain his regular routine. Leaving Miss Lira home all day by herself is also saddening me. When I leave for an hour I feel guilty. Leaving for an entire day, five days a week, is going to torture me. I'm secretly hoping that I will be able to bring her to work with me. I know I am crazy. She is the PERFECT OFFICE DOG though. She loves to sleep. Never barks. Never has accidents. Loves to be with me. Does NOT shed. What more can you want?!?! I'm also a bit bummed because I won't be able to enjoy hanging out with Ryan when he gets home early...which happens once a week-ish. So while I am being true to my Catholic upbringing and killing myself with guilt, I am also excited and really trying to enjoy my last few weeks of long walks, photography, coffee with friends, visits to the beach, glorious books, workout routines, and random naps.
Below are a few photos I shot this evening around dusk...or a little after...of my beautiful flowering tree. Here's to hoping we don't have another frost that kills off all of the buds. While I am loving this warm weather, the flowers are being tricked and I fear this spring won't be quite as vibrant because some flowers will already have bloomed and died from frost.
