Three weeks into new job and I am still in a constant state of fear and excitement. It was subsiding a little bit until Friday when I found out I am doing a one hour powerpoint presentation and discussion on contract processing on Tuesday! WT....! !!!!
I worked Friday night on it, took most of Saturday off, saw monkey play tee ball, had lunch with the parents and watched a goofy movie with DH. I have known about the presentation and that I was participating I just didn't know I was doing the whole thing. Now Sunday morning I overslept and I am drinking a huge coffee trying to get wake up, and procrastinating a little bit by writing this post. I still like the job, it is a lot of work, makes for long days, and I am HUGELY out of my comfort zone. I am constantly looking things up and wondering if I am really qualified. I don't have a a lawyer right there to be my safety net, I only have expensive outside counsel, which I have yet to use. Everyone in the office so far has been nice, they are an eclectic group and I am just weird and quirky enough to fit in.
I also got my paycheck and for a non-profit I am being paid well, so I am not going to complain. A few people are going to India next week and I am super jealous. I may go to Chicago or Denver for a class in the next few months, I have never traveled for work before... I feel so grownup!
On the home front I missing time with Monkey but I make sure the time I have with her is good. We went to the mall last Sunday and she got new shoes, a hot chocolate and a hot dog on a stick which she said "was the best day ever", so cute!
