Here's a brief breakdown of what's been happening the past 4-5 days:
#1. The first stop on my journey to South Carolina was a stop in Birmingham for one last hangout with my closest friends (Marion, Joy and Mike). We went to B-ham's annual Brewfest at Sloss Furnace. LOTS of AMAZING beers to sample. I am such a lover of Oatmeal Stouts!
#2. It only took me 3 days to break down (almost) all boxes and put up my stuff in the apartment. I still have shoes to deal with. No idea where they're going to go....My closest are bursting at the seams. Lots of people recommended I buy the huggable hangers, but I don't feel like digging out all the clothes again right now. lol. Maybe later. Added to my "to-do" list.
#3. My first day on the job was just OK...Without getting into too much detail, let's just say that once you hear something 5 times on your FIRST day at a new job about how your new boss is a big micro-manager and the phrase "good luck. I hope it works out for you" pops up in conversation way too much....you might start to question things. I have yet to meet my new boss, as she's out of town until Thursday, but all I can do is wait and see. My biggest issue is having a fun work family to go to everyday- I thrive on it....and I just hope it all works out fine.
The job? I can tell I'll like it. I think it'll be very rewarding working with Veterans.
#4. A few apartment photos:
It's still really hard to tell the size of the rooms from the photos, but trust me- it's a great size for me and the two pups :) It's starting to feel like home. More pictures to come....
OH, and this wine: Bubo=OWL in Latin
This Cab, called is part of Whole Food's Summer Top 10 Wines. Can anyone guess the first aspect of this wine that made me buy it? ONE guess....one guess only ;)
To be continued....
