Change is Hard

I have never done transitions well.

I don't like change.

As a kid I used to dread the ending of the school year and the start of summer.  Not because I didn't like summer, because hello, what's not to like about summer when you are a kid?  No, it was because my routine completely changed. I didn't get up at the same time.  I didn't get to see my friends every day.  I didn't have a schedule to follow.  All of those changes left me feeling very apprehensive.

I have always had a hard time when my routine is disrupted.

You can probably see where this is going.

I am having a hard time adjusting to my new job.

I was expecting this to happen.  It doesn't make it any easier.

In the end this job will be a great thing for me. I know this.  I will adapt.

Everyone tells me to just give it time.  But I am impatient.  I want things to be easier now.  I really need to get over that.

But last week was rough.  I am exhausted from it.

So exhausted.

I have so much to do and so little energy left to actually do it.

I'm supposed to do a giveaway for some scrapbook software that I was given to review.

I want to do a post about an awesome fundraiser that my friends are having to help bring home their second child.

My car is a disaster and badly needs a washing and to be cleaned out.

I should plan out our menus for the week.

None of those things will likely happen this weekend.  I'm just too tired.

The second week at my new job will be better.

My thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone on the East Coast who is in Irene's path.  I have lots of bloggy friends out there who might be affected and I pray they all stay safe.  Stay safe bloggy friends!!

I've never been big on change either, so I totally get it. Hang in there...things will get easier. What are your hours at the new job?

agreed, change is hard but completely needed and will always happen. Of course you are exhausted. You have left everything that is familiar to you. Hang in there, I will be thinking of you.
