So, what have I been up to this week?
Running, Swimming, and Biking:
Sleeping and Cuddling:
Acting like the “polite, put-together” military spouse that I’m not for a night:
What else has been going on?
I interviewed like crazy last week at an environmental consulting firm in town (7 hrs total), and finally got the job offer a week ago. I start on Monday! I’m so excited to actually be using my masters degree. My last job was great, but I really didn’t use my degree making maps via GIS (geographic information systems). I’m getting my own office and the job includes about 40% field work. This is good because I’m not a “9 1/2 hrs/ day stare at the computer” kind of gal. I like getting dirty. I like meeting and conversing with people. I like solving environmental problems. This new job will definitely encompass all of that. I was guaranteed that I won’t be getting bored which was sort of a common theme amongst most of my previous jobs.
I am also going from working ~30 hrs (not including teaching spin or other random little things I can’t say no to) a week to 42-50 hrs a week. Training for Ironman is about to get serious here with 10-18 hr weeks. I probably will have to stop teaching spin class, and prioritize my life. Time has just become even more valuable. I will have to practice saying the word “NO” more.
What does this mean for the blog? I know that I have probably slowly progressed to only posting about 2-3 times a week lately. I will do my best to post as often as I can, but I have a feeling life is about to get a little crazy with my new work schedule. I hope you all will be patient with me during this transition time!
Some exciting events/posts coming up:
- MONDAY: Want to win a $100 gift card?? Come back on Monday for your chance to win. My blog isn’t insanely popular so you will have a good chance of winning!
- WEDNESDAY: I have a short little gluten free guide in case you have been wondering about going gluten free. I’m gluten intolerant, and have been gluten free for about a year and a half. It changed my life.
- FRIDAY: My 10 year high school reunion is a week from today. I’m not lying when I say I was a geek (I still am to be honest)). Trust me on this. I plan on giving you my thoughts before I face my torturous high school years again. And, I will be recapping the night for you later that week.
Oh, and before I forget: I said I would mention this for one of my friends: It is a Race to Cure Diabetes. Basically, you can race the 5K anywhere to participate. Really cool.
How do you busy folks find time to blog?? I need some tips if I’m going to continue to blog and not go crazy!
