These clementines have seeds in them! Also, I hate the smell and feel of hands after eating clementines.

What a negative way to start my post. My bad.

1/ I am LOVING my job so far. I know it's only been a week, but I've been thrown right into it and to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way. Taking time to learn things is only a waste of time, I always enjoy it more when I learn as I go. And I'm careful enough not to make mistakes.

2/ So far I love my new wardrobe. I've lost weight since I bought the clothes, and knowing that was my "plan" I bought things a little tight - and now? Almost loose :) But I won't get small enough so they will be big on me.

3/ My life is SUPER busy now. I was busy when I was simply working. Then, I was busy when I was on maternity leave with my son. Now? Being a mom AND working - wowsa. Life is busy. But in a good way. I wouldn't have it any other way. I love work and I love my home life, does it get any better then this?

4/ My Christmas shopping is DONE and my Christmas cards only need 4 more addresses that I am expecting tonight (and maybe they all have a picture of Santa with Carson in them). I need to get a few pictures printed to send to grandparents and great grandparents, plus I need to ship one package that's already done up and ready to go and then I am done. Yay!

5/ On Wednesday, I am off to lunch with the girls I used to work before I went on mat leave and then Wednesday night I'm off to dinner at the Keg with the girls I used to work with in the private sector. I didn't realize until I wrote it down that both meals were with ex co-workers. Funny. I'm looking forward to both.

6/ Eating is going so-so, but I'm not worried, stressed or obsessed. It's a great feeling! While losing another 10 lbs would be super fun, my whole wardrobe fits and I'm in no rush to go shopping again.

7/ Now off to snuggle on the couch with my husband and watch Dexter (my fave show right now) and then off to bed and start again at 5am!

Hey Christy, I'm glad you are loving the new job and that all is settling into a good place for you. Balance is key and you seem to really be mastering it. Congrats on everything, especially those clothes being "almost loose" :-) Awesome! xoxo
