New Job, New School Year

Well, it seems that this summer has flown by and I feel like I haven't accomplished much of anything, how many are with me there???

Yesterday, I started my new job at Godfrey-Lee, and boy was I in for a day of meetings and information overload. My mind feels overwhelmed with everything I need to know and do.. I am praying that God gave me the skills to do this job.. It is after all, my FIRST BIG GIRL JOB! So if between now and the next year you thing to pray for me, I sure would appreciate it..

                                                      (  Bought this pillow case in Georgia)
I am stepping into new territory, they don't know a whole lot about me and I don't know much about them, but I am excited to see what comes from this new job. Yesterday, I learned about the rich history that my district has and it has a very unique story. I am not going to bog you down with the history, but something cool about the district is that you can virtually walk to any building and it's .6 of a mile.. Just a little over half of a mile radius! Pretty cool!

I took some pictures in my new school clothing.. Who says adults can't get new clothes for school??? 

Overall, the day had a lot of information to cover and by the end of the day I was feeling overwhelmed. Upon arriving home, I had a migraine, which I don't get very often.. I took a nap before Drew came home. When he arrived, I was in pretty bad shape. Again, I don't get them very often, but it was not looking good.  If you have never had a migraine, you're very lucky! They are awful! I always tell Drew I want to hit my head against the wall to make the pressure stop!!! 

So, I had to give myself an air shot in the stomach, which sends medication straight through the skin and to the brain! It is pretty cool! Within 20-30 minutes, I had relief and felt like a human again..

This morning I am doing good, feeling good about having the day off and getting some things done before next week! 

What are you big plans for the weekend? I got a 9 mile run on schedule for tomorrow!!



How did your 9 mile run go? i so want one of those pillowcases!!! Erica

It is wise to have a “two-weeks-worth-of-sleep” before heading into your first day of work, since this will probably be a day that would bombard you with a lot of information. Always have your tumbler filled with coffee and ready to go. Bringing some aspirins wouldn’t hurt you as well. It is always good to be prepared.
