Well hello and good morning to all of you!! How was everyone’s weekend??
Mine was good and busy; not so much busy in the sense that we were out a lot, but definitely busy in getting prepared for the week ahead. Because of that, I didn’t spend too much time at the computer, but here’s a little bit of what you may have missed…
So I’m quickly being reminded of just how much work goes in to preparing for a full (well, almost full – I have 3-1/2 days this week) work week. Especially with it being my first week, I didn’t want to have to worry at all about feeling rushed in the morning. So in an attempt to combat any last minute rushing around in the mornings, I’m planning on getting my ironing and the next day’s lunch done the night before.
Yeah, we’ll see how long this lasts…I haven’t always been great at this even when I was teaching full time.
Luckily, while I was getting some things prepared yesterday evening, my wonderful, amazing husband offered to cook us dinner. My gosh, I love that man.
I helped with a few things in preparations, but my guy took care of just about everything and mannn…he can make a mean dinner when he wants to!
We’ve discovered that one of his best dishes is our favorite, special occasion Chicken Scallopine with Sage and Fontina Cheese. And since we had reason to celebrate my new job, it was the perfect opportunity for it.
The chicken from this dish is just incredible. Granted, it does take a little extra time to prepare, but that’s why we keep it for special occasions. Totally worth it.
The freshly shredded Fontina cheese and sage leaves in the middle give this dish soooo much flavor. I love it!
Along with the chicken, we had steamed green beans and some whole wheat rotini to act as a base for some more of the delicious sauce from the chicken.
Seeing as though today is the first big day on the job(!!) I wanted to make sure I had nothing holding me down this morning. So last night, I prepped myself a batch of overnight oats in a jar.
That’s’ an old photo right there (since I’m obviously not at Starbucks this morning…although I do have one on my way to work now…) so the only thing different with the one I’m enjoying this morning is no blueberries but added pumpkin. They’re tasting mighty good this morning, especially since I haven’t had them overnight like this in months.
Alright, my friends. This is it…time to head off to my first day of work! I’m feeling so incredible nervous/anxious/excited, it isn’t even funny. I sort of feel like I’m a kid heading off to her first day of school or something. Crazy!
Wish me luck!! I’ll be back later this evening (hopefully) with updates on the first day.
Question for the Morning:
What’s the last career or school related change you had that made you nervous/anxious/excited?
