A week in! Anyone else feel like a rock star? Or just amazed that the first week of 2018 is coming to a close. I am a mixed bag of both 🙂
This week for me was a little crazy… I accepted a position (YAY!!!) that takes me out of my office at home a little more and into the world of marketing which I LOVE LOVE LOVE – yet it is new and I am adjusting to the change in my availability while still hanging on to the commitments I have with non profits, friends, and other projects. I need to borrow from my good friend Amy her word, BALANCE.
I read a little (thank you Jill Anderson!) and I listened to a little audio… I have reviews to write (Huzzah!), W9s to fill out, invoices to send, power point to design, and this recap of the week.
January 1: COLD The 10k in ST Paul at 20 below zero. 6.2 miles.
January 2: Love and Friendship… a beautiful gift in the mail, my friends had their little boy
January 4: Purpose. I started my first day in an office in town. I was a little nervous, I have worked mainly out of my home office since July 2014. It went well. The others were super nice, I felt good, and I felt I had purpose, which surprised me in good ways.
January 5: Heartbreak. Bailey, who has been around for 20+ years was put down (horrible words). He was getting to be too much to handle – above assisted living care.. he needed someone all the time to carry him outside and in, he was blind and deaf and the HARD decision had to be made. UGH.
January 6: Creativity. I attended two jewelry making classes today – one for a necklace and one for a bracelet centered around our words of the year. I have never been to a jewelry making class before so this was new, exciting, fun, and took my mind off of (for a little while) the sorrow over Bailey.
As for today, the 7th… I do not know yet. The day is young… I am planning to stay at home for the most part and prepping some things to take pressure off my week… and it will be a week! Tomorrow Friends meeting, take down decorations at library, Author, Books Burgers and Brews in the evening, Tuesday office and lunch with friends, Wednesday gym, book hauling, a couple of meet ups for work, Thursday office, 2nd Thursday Happy Hour For A Cause in the evening, somewhere in the middle maybe some shopping for vacation next week, Friday gym, office.. somewhere in the week I should consider tanning as well….
Welcome to 2018. How was the first week for you?
