First Day!

Well today is my first day at my new job, and I’m currently sitting at my new desk, on my new (old, but new to me) laptop, craning my neck around my cubicle wall to occasionally glance out the window.  This morning was full of introductions, tours of the building, and initial set-ups, and web training.  Fun stuff!  I have a few meetings this afternoon, and then my first day will be behind me.  Seems pretty good so far, I’ve already had an invite in calender for the company Holiday Party on Friday, wooo!

Yesterday, the girls and I did more decorating of the house for Christmas, this time tackling the outside fence and front porch.  We’re pretty happy with the outcome so far, but I think we are going to hang some more lights as soon as we figure out an outlet situation.

Front of the house!

After the decorating, I finished unpacking my clothes and hanging them in the makeshift closet that Adrienne’s dad helped me put together.  The one that came with my room is teeny tiny, so something had to be done about it, and thanks to one trip to the Container Store I was stocked with the makings of a new closet.

new closet!

Pumpkin is trying to decide how she can make it to the open window, and I still need to buy a curtain to hang across there, but you get the idea.  It definitely added a lot of space to my cozy room :).

The rest of the day was really the epitome of a lazy Sunday.  I was in my pajamas by 6:00 relaxing on the couch with my roommates, and in bed by 10 pm.  Today after work I’m going to try to figure out a gym situation.  There is a LA Fitness (which I already belong to from home) about 10 minutes from my new house, and then there is a Bally Total Fitness right near work, which they will pay for.  With my new 9-5 hours (I used to work 7-3:30) I definitely want to try the whole working out before work thing, it’s just do I want to work out close to home and commute to work or get the commute over with and work out close to the office.  Decisions, decisions!

Alright well I’m off to meet more new people and hand in my new hire paperwork so I can get paid!  Happy Monday, only 24 days until days off for Christmas!

  1. I love the ornaments in the tree!! Cute!

  2. I’m so glad to hear that the first day at your new job is going well! The first day is always the scariest part. Once you get through that, you should be fine. 🙂

    With the gym situation, I’d probably choose to work out closer to home so I can shower and get ready and then go to work.

  3. I personally would go for the free membership. 🙂 But Im cheap . . .

  4. Good luck with the new gym routine… I’m SUPER jealous they’ll pay for it!

  5. Welcome to the area lady!! 🙂

  8. I don’t know what this Container Store is that I keep hearing about (first Oprah, now you), but if it is what I think it is….then it could be my mecca. Gotta seek one out.

  9. Your house is very cute! I like the shape of your closet. I prefer to workout before work because usually after work I’m too drained. But it’s just so hard getting up in the morning.

  10. Have a wonderful time at your new job and new place. We’ll miss you!

  11. I’m glad you’re getting settled in. Everything sounds great!

    I wish my work would pay for a gym. If it was close that is. I always take a really long time making decisions about gyms though. I’m pretty picky abou them.

  12. Glad the first day at the new job went well.

  13. So glad you are doing good and settled in!! How exciting!
