Long and Longer

by - Friday, July 17, 2015

I've been at my new job for a few days now. Things are going about as well as I could have hoped for. Knock on wood. I was basically thrown into the deep end of the pool from the first day, so there is a lot to learn! Business rules are all brand new as expected. I also get to play with the latest and greatest technology which my inner geek is super excited about. My days are busy, but it's the good kind of busy. I won't lie, a part of me longs for the unproductive days of my sabbatical. I hope in time I'll be able to find some sort of happy medium.

In the meantime, look at me wearing "new" work appropriate outfits! My mind hasn't been completely taken over with work thoughts ;) One aspect that I haven't put much thought into are the accessories. I've been pretty much wearing the same 3 pairs of pumps and carrying the same 3 bags. Even worse, I've only been wearing a fraction of the 9 possible combinations. Blue shoes with a blue (or neutral) bag or in today's case, red shoes with a red tote.
