New Routine In Progress

This past week has been a bit of an end of an era for me. The last two years I have had the pleasure of working from home, my commute consisted of a walk through my living room to my office. Due to my job disappearing, lately I have been forced to put myself out there in a horrific job market to find something new. My first instinct in times like these is to go hide under the bed, but I sucked it up and with several pep talks from my Jay and my mom and pretty much everyone else that knows me managed to search out and get a great job. The only down side to the new job that I can find so far is that I have to commute downtown 4 days a week (this is a good solid hour each way). It's been a bit stressful for this chronic suburbanite, but I have been learning new things every day. I'm quite able to entertain myself during the commute with my ipod and lots of new podcasts, but it all seriously cuts into my craft time. If only I could knit and drive at the same time! I started last Monday and the new job, along with my youngest ending up having pneumonia, definitely contributed to it being very quiet on my blog. Hopefully all will settle into a routine soon and I will figure out how to fit petting fabric and yarn into my new schedule. Now, if only I could convince them to let me bring this very important desk accesory with me to my new job...

If anyone can talk them into an office cat, you can! Might want to wait until you get into your new office space so the cats don't have to be paw printed!

Oh my this is the cutes picture ever! I wish I could bring my cat to work ...and my sewing machine. What the heck , I wish I didn't have to work at all. I'm totally with you there, I leave the house at 8:00 and get back around 19:00. That's 11 hours without crafting and my cat *sigh*

Well at least you have made it pass a week...Yippee. Yes I agree with you all...let us bring our pets to work it would be so much nicer and streefree. Only thing I would have to spend to much time petting.
