I’m not gonna lie…this is pretty much how I feel. I’m exhausted from the last couple of days. Figuring out where I’m supposed to go, who everyone is, what I’m supposed to know (in a very general sense)…is enough to make my head explode. Don’t get me wrong–for the most part it’s been really pretty cool. I found out today I’m replacing someone who left and apparently they are grateful I’m coming on board. I got hugs today! Gosh, I never even got hugs after working for eight years with most my past co-workers.


But filling ones head takes its toll. I had a pounding headache today (well I didn’t drink enough water either).

I know it will come, but for now I want to just fall into my bed. Of course, when I do get in there, I toss and turn thinking about all I have to learn! Oh brother…I just can’t win. πŸ™‚

That’s me though–I will press on. Β It’ll all be fine eventually. But for now, I am just going to crash. Hard. Nightie night.

  1. I hope you wake rested and raring to go! First days might be overwhelming, but they are also energizing in a lot of ways. I bet you felt really alive and excited for hours, which is draining itself. I hope they are patient with you while you learn. We all deserve patience. πŸ™‚

  2. “Blessed is the person too busy to worry during the day, and too tired to worry at night.” I don’t know who said that, but I like it, though taken to the extreme I suppose could be bad, but in general, it is good.

  3. I think learning a new job is extremely stressful, even when it’s a great job and a good fit! Hang in there: it will come, and you will figure out the routine much sooner than you think….. Meanwhile, know that we are rooting for you!

  4. Yup ready again! They are overwhelming, but I’ll get it eventually. I am very happy to have this job…they are mostly patient, but it can be frustrating for us all! πŸ™‚

  5. Ha ha…I’m not sure yet. I was thrown to the wolves today. I’m not sure I had much success today. It’s pretty hard to go from a career where you feel completely capable to one where you are a nincompoop. Oh well……

  6. Well, I actually get out at 2:30 if you include lunch. Today it was later because I found an elderly woman wandering in a parking lot…see my blog post πŸ™‚
