First day at the new job

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. :)


  1. Congratulations on surviving your first day! That's always the hardest :) And yay to surprise dinner - that's so sweet!!

    (Also? You can't go wrong with a little Pacey addition to your day. Good call!)

    1. Thanks Melbs! A little pacey action fixes anyone's day! :)

  2. Mmmhmm. I know this feeling. And it is pretty awesome to read about it elsewhere and know that I'm not nuts. The whole flurry of emotion and activity is normal. It is. :)


  3. Thanks Lor! It's so nice to know I'm not alone. Starting a new job really is pretty draining, isn't it? But in a good way.
