I'm Back In the Real World

Hello world! I just got back from a four month (jobless) vacay so last Monday morning was a little rough to squeeze in eight hours sitting at a desk and being on the computer....oh wait, I guess it isn't that much different from me sitting on my couch and being on the computer :)

My first week of PR work went great. I stayed very busy learning all kinds of things. Since a lot of our clients are in the Oil and Gas industry, I get to learn about fun things such as: fracking, mud logging, TriAx products, etc. INSERT BIG QUESTION MARK. I will learn though. Good thing I have Jesse to help me on some of these terms.

Getting back into a 40 hour workweek will take some time to get used to, however I have a feeling I will stay busy which means the work days will go by fast.

I forgot how much fun Thursday's and Friday's can be when you work. I took for granted my weekends when I didn't work, so I am glad to be appreciative of them again. Thursday's, in my opinion, are always great because you are only one day away from the weekend and Jesse and I typically hang out a little later with friends since we only have to push through one more day of work. Friday's are obviously great because it's Friday! At Fifth Ring, someone always brings breakfast on Friday mornings and the office atmosphere is so much more relaxed (meaning I get to wear jeans), I love it.

On the flip side, I forgot how much I dread Sunday evenings. There is always so much to be done before work the next day and after evening church you don't have much time to relax and unwind before Monday arrives. Oh well, it's all part of the package I guess.

I feel bad for Jesse, I didn't cook once last week. However, I did make him a yummy breakfast on Saturday morning to prove that I was still a good wife, not that he ever questioned that matter.

So that is that, my first week has been completed and to answer one of my blog reader's comments (which by the way, you all should check her blog out at www.smilesteady.com): Yes, there is a small chance I may get to go to Scotland, but who knows when that will be and it is a small chance. Oh how I would love to go though. I have always wanted to visit Ireland and Scotland, maybe that dream will come true : )

Have a happy workweek, everyone!


  1. I'm so glad you are liking it! I can't wait to hear more about it.

  2. It sounds like this will be a great job once you get it all figured out. And going to Scotland would just be icing on the cake! :)

  4. Your Friday breakfasts sound like fun. If it ever comes up your turn, I can send you a recipe for a crock pot breakfast casserole that you turn on before you go to sleep and it is ready the next morning. Yummy, easy, and a hit every time.
