But it's the good kind of dead! [Apr. 4th, 2007|11:18 pm]
[Current Mood |bouncyspastic]

I just want you to know that I love you all. You're all very dear to me.

I simply have no idea what's going on in any of your lives.

The job is overwhelming. There is so much to absorb right now that my brain is in 'splody/melty mode as soon as I walk out. And I've been getting up at 5am and working in the mornings, just trying to get "frontloaded" on the whole thing. Plus I've already picked up my first additional client, for whom I have work to do - was out until late yesterday evening on the first meeting. And there is a ton to do tomorrow. And Friday I'm in court.

The nice thing about the G-forces from this speed is they make me look like I'm smiling.

Kidding aside, I'm hoping that it will probably settle into something more of a routine in another week or two, but I don't see "routine" being the order of business anytime soon. And that is way cool.

This evening, since it was the first one for which I got home at a decent hour, I figured I'd take the evening off.

Meaning I did 2/3 of the quilting on Amy's quilt. Because it was there, and why not?

Now, bed. Must get up and do some work before I go to work.

That's great.

Don't feel too bad. :) It's wonderful that you are enjoying your new career!

Only thing interesting in MY life so far is that I went on a cruise- but I think I saw that you did, too! Any pictures?

Glad to hear that it's going well, if busy! I've been thinking about you and your new job and sending over lots of invisible good wishes! :)

Almost every night before I go to sleep, I take out the little piece of paper that's under my bed and read it off. It has all the things I am thankful for on it, and it has a list of people that I want to pray for/about. I added your name a week or two ago. Just thought you might want to know. :)

Glad to hear that all is hectic but well. I can't imagine having a job that I actually liked, much less one that would excite me enough to be giddy about the rollercoaster you're on right now. I think that's just awesome!

Also, I can't wait to see the quilt. I wish I was a quilter, but it's just not in me. I do love to drool over them though.

Speaking for myself, I understand completely. My life's gotten a lot more busy of late, too. No offense taken. Also none intended for not reading or commenting as much in your blog.

I don't think things will get 'routine' in your sort of job, but I hope you feel comfortable and get past the "everything's new" phase soon. I'm pretty sure you are the type that thrives on challenge and HATES routine, so you're in a good place. Much good luck to you!

Yes, I am! But I need some things to be routine - the basic underpinnings of the office, for example.

But yeah. Rote work drives me batty. So it's good.

What I've noticed with you is that if youre not busy or under some kind of work stress you are bored and don't know whatto do with yourself. You enjoy having things to do and being active, if you didn't how boring would life be. Nothing is too much for you to handel, you'll catch up and be bored again in no time. Good luck.

It's exciting because there are a lot of differnt things going on. Which is good overall, if occasionally terrifying!

Just try to remember not to work yourself so hard that you get sick. That just makes things much worse.

So, every now and again, remember to stop. Inhale. Exhale. And start again.
