Yesterday I got some new clothes to go with my new job at work. Actually, I just stood in the dressing room while my very fashion-forward husband brought me various items. He bought me; one pair of pants, one pair of short pants, a skirt, five shirts, three necklaces, one belt and one pair of shoes. I hate shopping. Always have. My mom (AKA Super Shopper) would beg me to go with her when I was a kid and I’d refuse because she had to look at everything, touch everything, drag me from one end of town to the other - no thanks. I’d rather stay home and read. I’m not good at shopping, either. I never know what goes together or what will look good. My husband can bring me something that I would have passed by because of the way it looks on the hanger and it looks amazing on me.
Armed with these new clothes, I intend to reinvent myself at work. I want to put as much space between ‘Admin Christy’ and ‘Proposal Writer Christy’ as I can. I’ve got a new desk, new title, new clothes and a new attitude. I’m a Jumper, which is a term I’m familiar with coming from a route-based industry. I go where the need is. Currently I’m working on 13 healthcare (school therapy) staffing proposals, two IT staffing proposals and one document for a current client regarding my company’s services and ways to add value while saving money. Yes, that is high volume. I like to be busy and I like to feel like I’m contributing. Things have changed so much and I’m so happy there. I’m all in and ready for the long haul with our current management team. Now…let’s just all pray I don’t screw up. I’m waiting on the edits for my new big girl book. June 1 2012 is my release date. I’m excited to get through the edits and start something else which is going to be *DRUM ROLL PLEASE* The Lady, The Lake and The Locket (herein referred to as LLL). I’m 30K in and will take a good look at everything I have, outline again and start with fresh eyes.
So, in a nutshell, life couldn’t be better. Hope she’s being kind to you as well.
