Oops! This was supposed to go out last night. Think good thoughts for me as its my first day at the new job!!
It has been some sort of crazy last few weeks. If I had to do this all over again, I might have made a different decision. Not the decision to leave, and not the decision to move, but the decision of when to leave and a few other decisions along the way. I don’t recommend leaving one job on Friday and starting a new one on Monday, especially when they are several states apart. But what’s done is done, and tomorrow is my first day! Ack!!
To give you a little glimpse into my life the past two weeks, let’s just say I left the office for the last time around midnight and that was actually somewhat early for that week. Needless to say I didn’t have a lot of time to pack. I threw stuff in a suitcase and hoped for the best. Plus, I think they might have stores in St. Louis! 🙂
I slept most of the flight and then I was there. In St. Louis. My new home. I’m staying in temporary housing and so far the location seems pretty ideal! (Of course, the thing about temporary housing is that I get to move all over again.)
There is a yoga studio literally across the street. Score! Forest Park (which was designed by the same person who designed Central Park) is across the freeway. AND I found a secret tunnel a little ways down which leads directly to the park.
There is water in the park! It is not Lake Washington by any means, and it isn’t quite blue, but still, its water!
Speaking of water, a new running store actually had a tent out and was handing out water to passing runners. How cool!
Well, I just wanted to check in. I’m still here. And starting to learn my new surroundings.
Maybe next week I’ll be back to working out.
