Everything Is Different
|One thing that hasn't changed: These two are still BFF's.|
Y'all are already aware that I bought a house and moved, and have done and am continuing to do lots and lots of work on said house. Living room, I'm comin' for ya.
As mentioned briefly in a previous post, I've started a new job as well!
Exactly two days after I moved into my new house. So. That happened. And it's been a period of serious change and adjustment to a totally new routine in so many ways, which is challenging in and of itself. But knock on wood, so far the new job is GREAT. I'm working in the office of an ambulatory equine vet practice, and I basically get paid to talk about horses all the live-long day.
Real money, even.
I've been putting my all into learning the systems, procedures, and ins and outs of what it takes to make the practice run like a well-oiled machine, and so far I've been enjoying just about every minute of it. The folks I work with are kind and funny and truly dedicated to helping horses and their people, and the canine coworkers that hang out with us all day are pretty great, too. It's a BIG change from my super-flexible work-from-home real estate job, but it has also alleviated all of the stress and pressure that comes with working in a commission-based sales position.
The commute is a price I'll happily pay in exchange for an interesting job that comes with a guaranteed paycheck and doesn't follow me home!
So while I continue to settle into my new house, new town, new job, new commute, and new barn routine, I've given myself permission to not feel guilty if I can't get out and ride every day, or blog with any kind of frequency. There is just a LOT going on here, especially with Christmas fast approaching, and I'm okay with giving myself the grace to find my sea legs in this very different life I've thrown myself into.
That said, I'm looking forward to getting back into the blogging groove and continuing to share Dino's and my next adventures!
