Working it Out

It has been a bit over a month since I started my new job and surprisingly I don't really mind the getting up early part. Sunrise and I are becoming more comfortable with each other.  I've yet to become proficient at setting out my clothes, or making up a lunch the night before, but timing the lights while I rush to catch the bus is easier.  Mostly on the ride I just gaze out the window at this:


I've typed quite a lot of reports and gotten right back into the orthopedic med/legal vocabulary I was so intimate with for 15 years before being a manager the last four years.  With multiple clinics, the five of us are kept plenty busy.

The amount of walking on city sidewalks and streets after being pretty sedentary while off work for six months has given me some trouble with my feet and ankles, though, and I've got to get some better shoes! 

The hardest part of the new job?  Going to bed early!

Now I'm off to Joann's and some fabric therapy...

We can commiserate on the foot issues. I started having problems last Spring and thought it was my shoes. Since then I have been a regular at the foot doctor and am now in physical therapy. I hope your answer really is your shoes!

Very pretty view, much better than just seeing lines of cars the whole ride.

Enjoy your fabric therapy today.

My new favorite shoes are Keens - specifically Keen Ambler Mesh. I have some knee trouble (that has been ongoing since I was a pre-teen) I bought the Keens and LOVED them SO much I immediately ordered a second pair so I could rotate my walking shoes. We are now walking 2-4 miles per day and nary an issue with knee or feet.

Sounds like you've slipped right back into the work routine. I swear if I didn't have to go to work during the day I'd be up half the night sewing and plotting my next project!

Fabric shopping is always good therapy.
