I'm exhausted

I had forgotten how exhausting learning could be. Today was my first day at the new job. Overall, I would say it was a positive experience. So many new things, new people, new surroundings etc. My poor little brain is full. My whole schedule will be different for the next few weeks so it's going to take some getting used to. I am now officially a "mass transit" rider as well. It is nice to be able to save on gas and wear and tear on the car for sure. I had time to read the paper as I rode in and as I get more comfortable I will be able to read scriptures, books, listen to talks and music on my IPod. It will be a nice bit of "me" time for sure.

I might be M.I.A. a bit for awhile here and there as I get used to the new schedule and try to fit everything in so if I don't make it to all your blogs, don't worry, I'll get caught up at some point. After I am trained, I will be working earlier and getting back to a more normal schedule...I hope.

I have to say dear, that it takes a lot of courage to do what you are doing. A country girl working in the "weird" city. I'm proud of you!!! Especially since you left a job where the people loved you so much. The Awesome thing about you is that you are so dang likable!!! I mean you could talk to a cardboard box and MAKE IT LAUGH. I'm sure you will be just fine, and remember that when you get home the 2 people who love you the most will be waiting for ya. Again I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!! Go get 'em tiger!!!

I think going to a new job is always tough--but exciting. It's always hard when you're first learning, but it's always great to learn new things.

(I love what Blakes dad wrote about 2 people who love you most waiting for you--soooooooo sweet.)
