The last few days have been challenging. I'm questioning whether my brain has worked in the last 8+ years, or if it just has not worked in this area. Each new tasks brings questions popping up about trying to remember how to do things. I hope I don't have that "deer in the headlights" look on my face when I'm asked to do something.

I had lunch with a good friend that I used to work with on Tuesday. She still works at the law firm where I was previously. However, she is able to work at home and comes to the office about 1 day a week. Apparently her version of how things are at this firm is TOTALLY different than the other version I got. I didn't feel that going back to work where I had been previously was going to be a good fit for me. This is another confirmation in my decision.

I'm very pleased with where I am. I'm adjusting well to getting out of the house when I need to. Ripley seems to be doing okay. I could see a little difference in him yesterday when I got home, but he will adjust. Millions of little doggies stay at home. He has had several invitations to visit friends while I'm working.

Well, gotta run. My few minutes are up. Thanks for all your support!

Hi, Cheryl! Man... I sure can relate to those feelings you're having as you start a new job. It is overwhelming and challenging some days. Praying it all comes together soon for you!

Don't you love when God gives you confirmation on your decisions. He has done that a gazillion times in my recent house deals.

So glad things are working out! I am sure the stretching of the brain will keep you thinking sharp!
I understand about overwhelming that is how I felt when I started working with the children in Special Education. Oh how sweet it is when you end the day feeling you are right where God wants you to be. I am sure Ripley makes your evenings by giving you lots of love.

Hang in there! It'll all come back to you. Glad you are adjusting and I am glad you are right where God wants you!

I love you my friend, keeping you covered in prayer.

I'm praying for you and I am glad to hear that things are going well. I think new things always take a little time, but after awhile it all falls in to place.
