A little update...

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

As you know from my last post, I started my new career yesterday. I'm excited about the company I'm working for... Swagelok Alabama. The owner is fun to work for, the employees are laid back, hard working and enjoyable to work with, and I'm learning a lot. I told the Mr that my brain hurt last night from all the information it was absorbing, and that was no lie. I'm enjoying many things about my new job and company, but one of my favorite things... we have endless amounts of these (and other kinds) in the fridge, for free.

Of course, I had someone ask me about all the cooking I have been doing, and how would that change now that I'm working again, full time. My answer was simple... it doesn't change. Some people have a hobby for doing crafts, well, one of my hobbies is cooking. It's a stress reliever for me, and I love it. It's also something that is part of my other full time job, being a wife. No, it's not expected of me as a wife — but it's a pleasure for me to be able to do this for us. If you haven't tried meal planning for the week, give it a try one time. It's so easy and makes the week less stressful. No, I don't use a website to plan them for me... I plan it out by using the foods we enjoy, and add new recipes at least once a week from pinterest.

Can you believe tomorrow is Wednesday?!?! This week is flying by! Almost time for Disney... hang on Mickey... here we come!! =)


  1. So glad that you love your job and the cooking gets to stay :-)

  2. I'm glad you're loving your new job!! That's so important.

  3. Congratulations! I know you are super excited!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
