Hit the ground running!

Good grief! It is already the 4th of February  and I am just now making my first post.  I feel like such a looser. The past 5 months have been crazy.  Let’s see, in September  I got a job at Premiere Medical Group ( Ear Nose & Throat as well as Eye specialists).  I work as a receptionist for the Eye Doctors.  I fell in love with my job and the wonderful group of girls that I work with.  After a month at this position I was offered a traveling receptionist position, doing the same job just traveling to our 8 satellite locations with a select group of the Doctors.  A little more work but a raise and overtime! Yes please.  Moving on to November, remember this is just my 2.5 month at this job… I was approached  by my Supervisor and the Head of HR and they offered me the Assistant Supervisor position.  Once again it is more work but another raise… Again YES! So this position started at the beginning of December and I am chugging along.  It is so nice to be appreciated for working hard.  It has been a stressful start to the new year because  2 of our receptionists were promoted to work directly with the Doctors.  That meant we had to hire new girls and get them trained not only for the desk but also for traveling.  Things are starting to fall into place and the stress is starting to fall away.  On top of the new position, my husband has been talking about going pescaterian,  not eating meat other than just fish / seafood.  It has been 2 weeks and I have to say it has not been that bad.  I am finding a lot of recipes on pintrest and they are really delicious.  I hope we can keep this up. It will help with losing weight and getting healthy. On top of the new diet, we once again joined the gym and started this week. We are starting slow, only going 3 times a week for the first month just to get back in the routine! Wish us luck.

Mardi Gras is also in full swing here in Mobile, and it is really early this year.  It is a big deal here in the South. One big party for 3 weeks straight! I am not a huge fan of large crowds so I do not venture downtown if I can help it.  I grew up going to all of the parades so I feel like I have seen enough.  But it is a fun time to experience.

Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!

Until Then,
