new job update

Hi friends. Today's post is going to be short and sweet for two reasons...

1) My allergies are really bothering me AND
2) I took 2 benadryl because of it.

So, essentially, this post is a race against time before I succumb to the powers of the diphenhydramine. ;)

(Spoiler alert: I usually write my posts the night BEFORE they publish...so I'm writing this on Monday night. I would not take two benadryl during the day...lest I fall asleep standing up.)

I wanted to update y'all on my new job that started Monday.

Well, it was GREAT! This job is really amazing. I mean, the people I work with are all really nice and everyone seems to work really well together. The job itself, while very fast-paced, is a great mix of challenging tasks and things that really work well within my skill set.

I opened my desk drawer today to a drawer full of new office supplies.

I'm pretty sure I swooned a little bit.

And then I saw the Shout Wipes.

Then I really did swoon.

There were all sorts of little perks that I've never had jobs give me before...gifts, coffee mugs, personalized notepads...everything was just wonderful.

Though the first week will contain a lot of "drinking from the fire hose" I know that once I learn the ropes, it will be great.

I can't wait to go back to work! :) HA!


  1. My dad and kid sister are like that about office supplies. I stopped going to Office Depot with either of them years ago - they will stay for HOURS. :)
    Congrats again on the new job!

  2. I am so happy you are enjoying your new job so far!!! Office supplies...what are those??? It has been so long I have forgotten! LOL!
    Well friend it is Tuesday and my first official "lunch loser" day! HAHA!! I told Jeff last night I was so sad that when I came to work today you would not be here.

    Miss you friend!!!

  3. I have a super serious love for all things office supply related. Post it notes and ink pens....ahhhh nothing better!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
