Checking in ...

It was not my intention to take a 3-week break from blogging, but that's what happened :) And the reason why it happened was because I started a new job! The job is within the agency where I've worked for several years so I didn't have to change my commute, get used to a new building, etc. But the work is substantially different from what I've been doing for the last 8 years so there's quite a learning curve. I think that it's going OK, but the trying-to-keep-on-top-of-things hasn't left much time for the ole blog. I hope to get back to more regular blogging soon because I miss it, but I need to nail down my schedule a bit more so that I can actually figure out when I can post (and not be exhausted and distracted)! This new job could be a really good change for me, but I have to confess that I hate change :( I'm a traditional kind of girl who likes her routines, familiar faces, and everything to just stay the same. But change is a part of life that I can't change so I need to learn to get used to it :) And grow from it! It's humbling to go from a position where I had a lot of autonomy and was sort of "expert" at what I did to one where I have to work as part of a team and know next to nothing about what I'm doing, but a good dose of humility is a good thing now and again and I know that I need to challenge myself once in awhile (I was getting very bored in my previous position to be honest!). The next year will be much harder than the previous one at work, but it could be loads better too :)
