I am woman, hear me freak out


I of course woke up at the crack of dawn today, the big day, so after I had my cereal and made my lunch, I thought I'd quickly get on here to say thank you for all your good wishes!

I'm a little freaked, considering I haven't been at work in 5 1/2 months. But I went to lunch with my new boss on Friday and it seems like we're going to be a good fit. She's refreshingly human. (Of course, NO ONE will be able to compete with the Boss Man. But she can try.)

I have to report to HR in their corporate offices at 8:30, then I'll be on my way to the branch. My suit and blouse are pressed. Everything I'll need for my desk is packed up, including a framed pic of the MB and me (I'm hoping a glance at his wide smile will give me a boost when I'm lagging), I bought new clothes and makeup, got a mani/pedi, my car just got out of the shop with a clean bill of health and I'm ready to go.

Ok, I had a major breakdown shopping yesterday when I hated everything I tried on because of my hideous body, I was mortified at my broken-out face when the nice girl at the MAC counter recommended a new foundation, and I went to bed at 8:30 from sheer exhaustion at so much drama.

But that's kind of just par for the course for me. And today is a new day.

Here we go...

GOOD LUCK today! I hope you have a fabulous new day, in your freshly pressed duds and rockin' foundation. :)

I know how you must be feeling...I haven't worked since '01 *sigh* and if I went back to work today I'd be, quite frankly, shitting my pants. But you'll do great! I know it.

Good luck. Wish me luck tomorrow on my SECOND interview. The manager sounds kind of mean but that's because you were my manager for so long and no one can beat your upbeat personality. What's you job title anyway?

Hope you had a great day! I think I would freak out if I had to go back to work, though I hope to be able to someday.

Looking forward to hearing how it all went. Keep us posted!

have you seen those commercials, where these people are doing all these mundanely ordinary things, but they have their own cheering squad following them around?

THAT is this blog. :)

(Except of course you're not necessarily mundane or ordinary, just the personal cheering squad reference.)

I hope you had a good first day. My SIL also started a new job yesterday. That's kinda weird that you guys are on the same schedule. She had a really good first day.

hey, good luck on the new job! you'll be great!

as to time to blog...who knows? it's tough to work and have a relationship and a life and shop for healthy groceries and blog all at the same time.

(btw, I'm very sorry about the miscarriage...honestly, I felt something had happened and I avoided your blog. I'm sorry for that too.)

I can't tell you how devastated H and I were when we heard the news about the miscarriage..... but I'm pretty impressed you've started a new job.... Good luck... I hope today went well.... I will def try to log on tomorrow to find out how you got on.

Lots of love from all of us in shitty Wales.
