Day two at work was successful. I really like it there and I think I will be there for a long while because I have so much opportunity to grow. I've learned a lot over the last two days and have been taking notes so I can remember it all. This morning everyone was busy so I went about and did some things on my own and taught myself a few things while I was at it. I'm hoping to really impress them over the next few weeks (then it won't be such a blow when I announce I am pregnant and leaving on mat leave soon) I just really like it there, there is no stress, no one there gets stressed they all seem pretty laid back and the owner is such a nice guy, he's the kind of guy I like working for, someone who really appreciates his employees and you can tell he appreciates them. He takes them out to lunch, pays for benefits and I'm sure come holiday times he does something nice. I like working in a place where my hard work is noticed because then it makes me work even harder and I'm a lot more willing to go the extra mile and stretch for someone who treats me with respect as an employee. I always have loved working in smaller offices and I'm so glad to be back in one.
Of course today was great because I woke up to some AMAZING news from another baby loss mama and it made me so flippin excited. It really is about the small things in life that seem to make me happy and excited these days, I mean it could even be as small as someone getting me a bag of mini oreos (only like the mini, don't like the regular size) or bringing me a Rheo Thompson milk chocolate mint smoothie. But it also feels so good to feel excited, I can't get excited for myself, I can't be excited about this pregnancy, I'm thankful and blessed but my heart is so protective after losing Ty and Jacob. It won't let me get excited for me so instead I live through others and their excitement even though they don't necessarily feel excited themselves.
Not much else to report. Things seem to be starting to look up for us, though I will not hold my breath, I know they like to come crashing down at a moments notice but it would be nice to have some calm before our next major storm (I'm talking like a few decades if we can get away with it) Hopefully this time, having put our feet back on the ground we are able to build, because I am tired of putting on feet on the ground only to have the ground taken away from us and having to build again. It's be nice to build for awhile. Today was an okay day, perhaps even a good day....yes I'll even go out on a limb and say it was a good day. I've been in such a good mood today and am proud of the work I am doing at my new job, I was worried I'd lose my mojo but I still got it! I am still able to learn at a quick rate and teach myself, look for ways to make things better. So I am happy about that too. Plus it has been a great distraction the last two days and I really do think it will help my mood improve a bit...but man, it is EXHAUSTING!!! I'm pooped and ready for bed when I get home at 5:30!!!! So is the life of a working woman.
