This is what one looks like after the first day on the job, after having over two months at home without a routine.
I am tired. I walked in the door at 6pm, and by approximately 6:25pm, I had traded my dress for cheer shorts and t-shirt, washed my face (I’m not used to wearing eye make-up all day long!), and thrown my hair into a messy bun. I feel like myself again .
Besides coming home exhausted, I had a good first day. I met a few of my co-workers, I spoke with my supervisor several times throughout the day (she seems very nice!) and I attended my first meeting. I also got my company laptop set up and published my first story for the web! I would be lying if I said it weren’t a little overwhelming. I am learning the back end of the website that I am writing for, as well as the different social media sites that the company uses. I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it after a few days. The cool thing is, I’m actually getting paid to write full-time !
The thing is…I’m not exactly sure how I am going to fit blogging and workouts into my schedule yet. I skipped tonight’s workout because my shoulder has been bothering me all afternoon, and I’m going to try to make this blog post quick since it’s now 7:20pm and I haven’t eaten dinner yet. I don’t know how some of you work full-time, have a family, and keep up with blogging two or three times a day! I give you credit, because I don’t think I could balance all of it! I’m sure I’ll work out my schedule quirks in time. I have about a 40 minute commute, an hour in traffic, so that’s the frustrating thing at the moment. If only I could blog and drive… (just kidding!)
When I got home tonight, there was a package waiting for me on the counter. I was very excited, as I treated myself to a birthday present last week and ordered something I had been eying on Pinterest, then Etsy.
The owner of the Etsy shop describes the ring as the true love ring- sterling silver and stamped with your initials. I first saw the ring on one of Lisa’s Pinterest boards, where the caption read “Am I too old for this?” I had to wonder the same thing. Would I look silly wearing a ring with the initials of Jordan and I?
After thinking about it for about…five minutes…I decided that I am not too old. I think it’s cute, I think it’s kind of romantic, and therefore, I am going to wear it .
So there you have it. My day was filled with work, and a cute little package. Plus some other things, but I still haven’t eaten dinner and “The Bachelorette” will be on soon. Obviously I must get going since I have pressing things to do !
Enjoy your evening!
How do you balance work, blogging and workouts?
