|Me and Hunter at Graduation|
I hurried out of the office Friday just in time to wait in traffic on my way to Knoxville. I eventually made it, however, and my family was welcoming with dozens of questions about my first week. I was able to easily explain how my various projects were linked to the different brands, and how so many people could work together from opposite parts of the company—and even outside agencies!
Already accumulating on tasks to my to-do list, I was surprised by how excited I was to sit down Saturday night and work! But, I was, and I'm not afraid to admit it...
|Both my work laptop and personal one were needed!|
I love all of the fun places and parties Atlanta offers, too. Colleen and I were given a pair of tickets to a charity night with amazing food, unlimited Sweetwater beer and fabulous music. We had a great time, and took full advantage of all the free food and beverage!
|Sweetwater Brewery sponsored the event...I wasn't complaining|
Mostly, though, I love having a schedule and not having to worry about anyone but myself. I know that these are precious years where I can come home from work, go for a run, cook myself an artichoke omelet on an English muffin with goat cheese and have a glass of wine while reading myself to sleep with a great novel. I plan to take full advantage of every second of it.
|Green eggs and wine! That's what you get with artichokes, yum yum though!|
I am already looking forward to tomorrow! My dinner, my run, my quick trip to the mall for the skirt that I put on hold and cannot stop thinking about (sorry mom!), my work—even waking up at 6 a.m. to go do ground work PR at 7:30 a.m. Hand-to-hand combat...they've got us on the front line already!
P.S. Tomorrow is Choose You Day. Sprite Zero is teaming up with the American Cancer Society to tell women "put yourself first"—go for a walk, eat a healthy meal and schedule that long overdue doctor's appointment. www.chooseyou.com
I may or may not be promoting that tomorrow. Regardless, I believe in the cause.
