Girls Night In

the blog for single, over-40 women

DSC_0004The leaves on the tree in front of my house are turning yellow. They dry up and float down on the winds of the changing seasons. I love the changing of summer into fall. It’s one of my favorite times of year.

This year the fall brings with it other changes. A few months ago, I received a promotion at work. It has been a great thing. Just another sign of life marching on, never static and never boring.

Life has been crazy busy with these changes. For the last few months, I’ve been deep in learning Key Performance Indicators and how to help my people meet theirs. I’ve had to get up to speed on what’s expected in the weekly leadership meetings. Navigating the time clock system so that people are paid has been a learning curve. An important one because, you know, people like to be paid.

At the end of the day, I go home tired. It’s not as if I’m running marathons. I sit behind a desk. I go to meetings. I analyze trends. But it’s all new and it’s challenging me. When I drop into bed at night, I feel exhausted but in a good way. I love my new job.

It haDSC_0010s interfered with my day-to-day life. I’ve had to rearrange my world and am still trying to get into a groove. So, I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like, and I haven’t been here on Girls Night In for several weeks.

Sharyn and I talked a few weeks ago. I let her know I’d been struggling and we decided that I’d post here as I could for the next few months. I’m trying to get here at least once a month. So, I’m still here, just not as often.
