I managed to slip off one shoe and sock in the car during the hour drive home yesterday. The other was, understandably, busy driving the car home from my first day at the new job.
I was exhausted, in a good way. It was a flurry of new faces, information, experiences. But I earned it myself.
I pulled into the drive, ready to change into pajamas and veg out on my couch to a little Fringe action (hello, pacey!) when I noticed Ks work truck already at the house.
He was in the kitchen, banging pans around, surprising me with dinner! I couldn't believe it. Then, I looked over at the table and noticed a fresh vase of flowers.
And I just burst into tears. When you start a new job, it feels like your whole world is flipped upside down. And the only stable thing in it seems to be your partner, and your friends an family. I can't tell you what's relief it is to have someone who is standing by me, encouraging and supporting me, so that I can devote all of my energy to the job. I feel so incredibly blessed to have him in my life. All of my friends and family, too. I really don't think I could do it without them. :)
