I’m feeling rather discombobulated today, trying to get into a rhythm of being back at work. I feel the lack of time already.
At my previous job, I left home at 6:30 and was home by 4:00. Now, I am gone for 11 hours a day. That extra hour and a half will be missed!
I have managed to get some laundry done, and finish unpacking. But my email, Facebook, and the news have gone by the wayside. My blog post is late, and I haven’t read any today either. I still have a huge pile of snail mail to go through, too.
I do manage to get a little reading done on the bus, which is a plus. I like working down town. It’s a bit exciting compared to working in an office park. And, the best part, my pay check will help us reach the beach by paying the mortgage there.
I’m still not sure about the job yet. It is early, only my 6th day. I am trying not to judge things yet, trying not to form a first impression and give things a chance. That is not easy for me, as usually my first impressions are spot on.
I will need to get used to getting up early again. Scuba Man spoiled me when I was unemployed and let me sleep later than 5:00 AM. I love my sleep! I am a person who functions best with at least 8 hours of sleep.
My morning routine is non-existent also. Once I get used to actually getting up on time, I’ll be able to hit the treadmill in the mornings. Getting more things done before work since I am working until later in the afternoon, will help.
It’s not the easiest thing in the world, working full-time and having a home to take care. There never seems to be enough time to take care of things at home. Spending weekends away at the beach or visiting family don’t help either!
I am in awe of working mothers. I have no idea how they do it. Taking care of the home and children are hard enough. But they must have an incredibly hard time leaving their children. I miss Willow and Pockets so much now. I was so used to spending so much time with them.
I know a routine will come in time. I’m just a very impatient person!
