¡Feliz día de la Tierra! and Update on new job!

First of all, let me wish you a VERY HAPPY EARTH DAY!!! or ¡¡¡MUY FELIZ DIA DE LA TIERRA!!!

I have to thank all my blog friends for the nice comments and the good wishes. It is great to know that someone on the other side of the world or of the continent is thinking about you :)

My new job is an hour and a half away from home. I have to work 48 hours a week. It is a VERY non nature-related job and I have no view :(

It is new to me in many ways, although I know some processes and the lingo of the industry, I'm super nervous and stressed! I have to deal with critical info and many many many reports.

It is an office job, I leave the house at 7am and arrive at around 9pm... Am I going to survive that?? I'm so tired already, and it has been only two days!

I won't have time to go birding as you see. I'll wait for weekends to continue with my thesis and go birding... Tommy and I talked about posting here. If he can go birding or find something interesting I'll post his pictures with my comments (not my ideal, but better than nothing)

I have to apologize in advance for not having enough time to visit you all, I'll try to catch up on weekends, I'm going to miss you!!! It has been so great to read 'you' almost every day :)

Anyway, I believe there is something I need to learn on this job or someone I need to meet for the future. For some reason, even though is not 'the dream job' for a girl longing for nature, I feel like it is something I HAVE to do now. It is hard to explain, hope it doesn't sound too crazy!

Well, my dear friends, I must stop here, I'm soooo tired... Kisses!!!

Oh Mel, I understand about your job being something you "have" to do as I had a job like that for many years to pay my bills and buy nice things. Now that I'm older, and have most of the "things" I ever need, I found a job that still pays the bills, but gives me more more time to enjoy my nature and knitting times (and visiting my blogging friends).
I hope you will soon find your routine and some enjoyment in this job, but don't forget to make room for "Mel & Tommy" time, because after all, that's what is most important!!
A Big Hug to you from Minnesota, USA

Good luck, Mel! Blog when you can...we love hearing from you. But know that we understand your absence. You must be exhausted with all your travel time alone. Don't forget to take good care of yourself. Hugs!

I am so sorry for your long hours (commuting is not fun!). I hope you find more time to go birding soon.

Stay strong!
