The New Job Update.

The new job is going really well. The last three days have been exhausting as I soak in as much knowledge as I possibly can, but it's fun. The people are incredibly nice and the work is interesting.

The absolute best parts of the job are:
1. I get to wear jeans and flip flops everyday!!!
2. We play ping pong during lunch or at the very end of the day.
3. The people are awesome.
4. The company is extremely efficient and good at what they do.

It's a great company to work for and I'm looking forward to learning and growing here. The commute is a bit stressful considering I have sat in quite a bit of traffic, which means I am up earlier than I have been in a long time. But I'm getting the hang of things, finding the best route, and we'll have a house closer soon enough. Speaking of houses, we looked at our new target area last week and found that there isn't as much to pick from. But we remain optimistic and have plans to look at more houses next Monday.

Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes on the job. You don't know how much they have encouraged me during this transition. You guys are the best and I'm bless to have you, love!
