“How’s your life these day, CookieCakes?”
Why, thank you, so kind of you to ask.
I just finished my fourth week at my new job – yay! Trust me, there was more than one day when I didn’t think I would make it this far. In the first couple of weeks, I made quite a few rookie mistakes which led me, and everyone else, to doubt my abilities. I think I was so scared of doing something wrong that I froze and then did exactly what I was hoping not to do!
But I’m finally settling in and feeling confident. My co-workers are wonderful, and the work is manageable; the drive is easy; and the salary is enough to keep the bills paid. Win-win all around.
Of course, now that I’m working five days a week instead of four like I did previously, I only have weekends to do all that other stuff I enjoy, like photography. (Sure, I can take pictures at home in the evenings, but between exhaustion and wine, they sometimes don’t turn out too well – and does anyone really want to see multiple photographs of my kitchen table or Cody lying on the couch?).
The good news, however, is that while hubby is not at all interested in my blog, he does like spending time in scenic locations and has offered to accompany me on weekend photo shoots – often followed by dinner out, or at least takeout from our favorite restaurant. Double yay! So you all can hopefully look forward to some nice fall and winter shots now that I have a feel for my camera and the software that came with it (um I have advanced, right?).
I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
