Thinking Out Loud Thursday : 1/22/2015

Each week Amanda [Running with Spoons] hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursday. A chance for us to do some brain-dump blogging. And to hang out with fun people.

thursdaysHey! Monday was my BIRTHDAY! IMG_20150119_153155So of course I had to take a Birthday selfie.  🙂  

I decided to greet my birthday with a bang and…put in a 2 week notice at the company that I’ve worked for for almost 7 years! 


Okay.  Before you freak out (because I’ve been doing enough of that for everyone!) I do have another job.  I am going to be working remotely for a company, on their Customer Happiness team! Working remotely has been a career-dream of mine for many years, and I am so excited to be making the switch.  Plus, having a remote position allows me the flexibility to go wherever we decide in the next few years.  …and I am super pumped about my new job.  It was time for a change.

With the new job, I had to have a new workspace.  We decided to convert one of our walk-in closets (that was mainly a junk-collector) into an office for me.  IMG_20150121_101440Top left is (I hope obviously) the before picture.  I have stand up desk, and an adorable shelving unit.  🙂 

I’ve been doing some training in the new workspace, and Indy and I are working on boundaries.  I said “yes” to him being on the shelving unit, but “no” to him being on my desk.  He was showing his defiant teenage years strongly the other night saying “What if I just touch it with oneeeee litttleee paw”.  This new adventure with him in tow could be very interesting 🙂 IMG_20150120_164109In other super duper awesome news, I had another eye exam, and my eyes are finally safe, healthy, and seemingly working well.  (last January we had a pretty big “eyes aren’t doing well at being eyes” scare).  Ohh adulting. IMG_20150120_110140Dilated eyes for the win.  

Speaking of adulting.  I’ve mostly been doing things like…training on my new job, building my office, and other majorly grown up things such as signing up for new insurance plans, and buy a policy on the exchange for my gap in coverage (< for real grateful for access to the exchange!).  …All of which have taken greatly away from knitting-time, but I have squeezed in a few hours here and there to work on these socks.  THESE.SOCKS. IMG_20150117_120712They’re sooo pretty.  I lovers them.  

Okay.  So that huge bomb is what the past few weeks have looked like.  So maybe that explains my super duper vague posts for a while?! I promise my head will be reattached soon.  We hope.  🙂 

P.S. – 

We should be friends! Find me on Twitter and Facebook

  1. Happy Belated Birthday, congrats on the new job! My husband had his last day at his first post college job yesterday after being there for 7 years and will start at a new company monday morning. He’s all sorts of nervous!

    Ahh, love those socks!
