Starting Our Lives in Montana

Although my official first day won't be until Monday, I had my first brief visit to the new job yesterday. It was nice to actually put on some professional clothes and a little make-up again - although also a little strange at the same time. I kept repeating to myself in the car that "I am a competent therapist" just so I could remember what it is that I used to do! (I threw in 'competent' just for extra punch!) It feels like I haven't worked in a couple of years! It only took me a few minutes of sitting in the conference room in a meeting until I felt pretty much at home again. I look forward to starting the job and the new opportunities that will come with it. I won't go into much more detail here for the sake of keeping some 'cyber distance' to my work - but I am excited about the opportunity!

We're adjusting to life in MT and will keep the Newlynomads blog around for occasional updates on our lives here. For now, one of our biggest issues revolves around adjusting to the local traffic jams.... They can be a real bear! (Oh wait, no, I meant a "real cow!"...)




Rush hour traffic at its worst...



This is not just a dirt road occurrence either... and they always have right-of-way. Frankly, I am not sure what the fences are used for...




This one is in honor of our friend Bo - it is a Cow's Me'ass!!! Ha Ha!!!




A little MT humor...

Internet arrives on Tuesday so life will return to (semi) normal then... Ciao!

You poor things, all that traffic to cope with! Yes, what do they use the fences for?

As far as the new job goes, it sounds like a perfect fit for you.
