It is hard to swallow that this past Saturday was my last day of not working till Thanksgiving. I now work every single day of the week up till then. Woof. So appropriate here. Gosh I need some reminders of the marvelous.
Marvelous… I had my first day of work at the running store. Paperwork in hand I arrived for my first five hour shift on Sunday. Dress code – athletic pants and race shirts. I can so take that. Don’t forget the 45% discount, hello running shoes bliss. I think overall, I am pretty excited. The small staff, most around my age makes it feel really cozy. I mean I basically get to talk about running all day long. Who wouldn’t love that? They also kept telling me how many free sneakers we get from all the representatives that come in. Apparently we get a lot of free stuff.
Marvelous… that I let myself melt down. I do this terrible thing of holding all my emotions in and bottling them up. Well, I snapped on the phone with my mom. I will be honest here and say I am super nervous about how I am going to balance this all. I am out of my apartment from 8 am to 8 pm every weekday. My normal grocery shopping time is shot and without a car that means I will be going Saturday night after a full day at work. I am struggling to have enough food each week to last me from Saturday to Saturday – I just suck at knowing how much to buy and being able to afford what I need to buy. I am just so frustrated with this, I have no idea how balance will be met – getting enough sleep, food and rest. Sounds impossible at this point.
Marvelous… when you find the blogger behind the blog to be even cooler than you could imagine. So my little blogger date with Molly fell through on friday due to crazy bad traffic and unexpected downpour. Sad times – I even had the squash all scoped out! But what I loved was just being able to text, email and tweet with this girl leading up the meet up even if it didn’t happen. I was literally laughing to myself in a coffee shop despite the various stares. I’ll take it.
Marvelous… I finally had a catch up on my last day of freedom with my lovely buddy in DC. Walking around DC in this weather just enjoying each other’s company is always welcomed. Especially when I am homesick as butt. She and I just click, even after not seeing each other for quite some time, it was like we had been meeting up every single day.
Marvelous… that a start of a new week means I am that much closer to Thanksgiving and getting to see family. That much closer.
Don’t forget to enter the Adora giveaway! It ends tonight at 8 pm.
