Aren't First Days The Worst?

But not really.

Today was my first day at my new job. Let me just say that if first days are the worst, then I can totally handle the worst!

I still don't really have a clue about what I'm doing, and I can only remember about 3 of 15 names (one of which is my name!), but everyone is sooooo nice!

And when I talk to people they all say how great the owners/management are! How refreshing!

The coolest part of my day? I only spent 11 minutes on the bus to get home after work! 11 minutes! And I only spent 13-14 minutes on the bus this morning. To put this in perspective, if you add both times together, it would have taken me longer one-way to get to my old job in the morning (when traffic is lightest, and travelling times are the best). I love my new commute!

Oh, the other cool thing----I can wear jeans to work. Any day. Even on a Monday, or Wednesday, or whatever. Not just Friday. When the woman training me said this I thought she was joking. I'm having a really hard time wrapping my mind around this concept. I think I'll wear jeans tomorrow, but I'll put dress pants in my bag (just in case). Okay, maybe I'm a little crazy.

In (sort of) knitting news---

My tea swap pal got her package! Her name is Lorena. Here's here blog. I am SO GLAD she likes what I sent her. I'm actually going to be sending her another small package, because I forgot to put something in the package I already sent.

I was going to send in last week, but things haven't been getting done because of the whole job transition thing. Oh, I almost forgot--I have a package to send to Abigail too.

Take your time! I know how crazy life gets and with the transitions you're going through right now, well... no worries. I'll be giddy over this package for quite a while! Thank you again for being such a wonderful pal. Three cheers for Chrissy! :-)

Those dishcloths are faboo. I've printed the entrelac pattern and will definitely give it a go.
