I've been at my job for 1 month now and Ethan is starting 3rd grade on Monday!! What?!?!
I really miss blogging regularly but this new schedule is killing me...adjusting slowly.
I do love the insane flexibility...basically I can just about come and go as I need to, for doctor appts and such as long as it's coordinated with my team members and not too many people are out at the same time. Totally do-able.
We went to "meet the teacher" last Wednesday and walked around the school quite a bit. We both had a great time and Ethan seems to be good with going to a new school and meeting new friends. He is definitely excited about being able to wear whatever he wants - though oddly enough, he never complained about wearing a uniform. Ha!
So in general, things seem to be going well for us. I'm happy to have a little more $ than I'm used to and I am LOVING learning something new and being challenged..and let me say, I am definitely challenged..haha - being out of an office/corporate setting for 6 years pretty much killed my tech skills. Oh the things people use Excel for these days. Whoa!!
Oscar has mentioned wanting to update his resume and start looking for a job in town...that would be a nice help now with my new job and longer hours. We will see how that shakes out - we haven't even had the time to work on it because he's only been home on Saturday for the past two weekends, having to drive back to Richmond, VA on Sunday afternoons. Boo!
I'm also registered for a race weekend Sep 9-10, a 5k on Friday night and a 1/2 on Saturday....3 medals and lots of swag. I
My reading is taking a hit with this new schedule as well, but I'm just about finished up with "Where'd You Go Bernadette?" --it's pretty quirky but the friends who've read it have left positive reviews...so we'll see what happens.
