Adjusting to new life

Once Thanksgiving was over, life and reality set back in. We both started work on Monday the 28th. We stopped at Starbucks for a little “first day” treat. Yum!

I got to work around 7, my normal starting time. I was warmly welcomed! It was so nice! I soon found out that I get my own desk (score!) and they put a “Welcome” sign on it! So cute! The place I’m at is much larger and much nicer than my last facility. It’s funny because everyone there thought that the California facilities would be nicer. Ha!

My first week went very well! Very welcoming, very friendly, very sweet coworkers. Eric’s first week was about the same as mine.

It was good to get back into a normal routine. It’s funny though because after work, I have no chores really to do. We live in a one bedroom “apartment” so my to-do list is rather short. I started going to the gym again. I picked up my running schedule again, and I’ve been happy doing so. I’m hoping to get back to where I left off soon.

In the last week, we’ve watched the first season of Dexter. Wowsers! We’re addicted!!

Life is a bit different now. The heartaches of IVF feels like its behind me. I’m focusing on losing weight for the upcoming FET, getting healthier, and trying to get back to a better state, emotionally.

The reality of my dad being gone has really hit me hard lately. I find myself thinking of him and missing him very often. I’m sure that’s not going away anytime soon.

I’m hoping since I have more free time, that I’ll get back into reading. Since my dad was hospitalized in July, I really haven’t picked up a book.

Most of my goals for the year (like reading 30 books) were pushed to the back back back burner when he was hospitalized and after his death, and with our move, everything has been in kind of disarray.

I’m sure very soon, everything will fall back into place, as we continue to find our way here.
