Free Bird for a week!

My last day of work at my old company was on Friday. Even though I’ve been working remotely from home for the last year and half, saying goodbye was hard and bittersweet. My close friends at work had already left but saying goodbye to the people I’ve worked with over the last 3-4 years was much tougher that I thought it would be. I had tears in my eyes when I said goodbye over the phone.

Working for the last 5 years in the same company and then leaving it – it’s hard. It’s a part of your life which you say good bye to.

Enough of the sadness! I’m excited about joining my new company starting next Monday. I’m excited about that. I have several things I want to get done over this week before I start my new job and get busy.

Flylady Update #4

I haven’t been very good about following Flylady’s rules. I washed vessels and loaded the dishwasher but didn’t do a lot of housework outside of that. I cooked but just made a salad.

Flylady Update #3

Was not well yesterday morning and was very dizzy in the morning. Had a very hard time getting out of bed and so didn’t make the bed yday. I ran a lot of errands and came home home. Got some of my to-do list cut down.

Cooked – fryed some frozen samosas and made Gobi Manchurian from a packet. While not exactly cooking, I was in the kitchen for a long time doing this. Was really tired after the long day and went to bed without washing vessels.

Hope to do a little better today.

Flylady Update #2

Made the bed as soon as I got up. Did a load of laundry. But I haven’t folded the laundry yet, took shower in the evening and did not wash vessels in the night.

So far, I’m not doing so good, Flylady. I’ll keep trying though.

Yesterday’s Flylady Update

I made the bed as soon as I got up at 5:30. I packed lunch for my husband, sent him off and did some office work. I’ve given my 2 weeks notice and am doing my regular daily work which I need to. At around 8, I got so sleepy that I went and slept for 3 hours. That was a step back. In the evening, I did cook and wash vessels and load the dishwasher. Didn’t shine my sink before going to bed though. Went to bed early.

For the last few months, I’ve been reading and following Flylady – It’s hard to describe Flylady. Depending on how you look at it, Flylady’s philosophy can mean a lot of different things to different people. To me, I’m looking at it as a way to get organized, keep my house in order and get my life in order.

I’m starting a new job soon. Starting today, I’m going to start writing about my adventures in organizing and trying to follow Flylady here.

Here’s to seeing how that goes!!

New job!

After 5 years of working for my current employer, I’ve received a job offer from another company and have decided to accept it. I will be giving my 2 weeks notice today.

This is going to be a completely new chapter in my life – it’s going to be a very challenging job requiring me to do a lot of things I’ve never done before. For the last 2 years, I’ve been stuck in a stagnant role and I’m excited about this new¬†opportunity but I’m very scared at the same time. I’m scared of failing and not doing a good job but I have to try.

I work from home in my current job and I’ve gotten into a rut where I don’t like the person I am anymore. I will be interacting with people face-to-face and getting out of the house everyday – I’m hoping this will jolt me out and help me become happier.

Wish me luck!
