One for the road...

I've been making changes big and small in TMI-land.  Last month I was all "Hey, I made some crazy and wild design changes to my blog".

You were all "Changing a font size and color does not qualify as a 'crazy and wild' design change, okay? Call us when you make some real changes!"  Geez Louise, you sure don't mince words, do you?

Then a few weeks later, I got all crazy and spontaneous and changed the blog template to the one you see now. BAM! BIFF! ZOOM! How's that for a big change?

I suppose that's how I work sometimes...I dip my toe in, test the waters, think about it, and leap so suddenly that I surprise myself.  Or maybe I'm the only one who is surprised, and everyone else is thinking "It's about damn time." 

At the end of May, I shared with you my transition of going back to work from maternity leave.  That was a change, but not so big because I was going back to my same job at my same office.  But now, in the span of one week's time, I made a very big change...I got a new job, in a somewhat new field, in a new city. BAM!

This new job has a lot of benefits, one of the biggest being that it is only ten minutes from my house so no longer will the kids and I have to endure a hellish 3-4 hour commute. To celebrate the new job and say goodbye to my friends at the old job, I did one of the things I do best...I made cupcakes.

So that's the new news in the TMI household.  I'll have a lot more time on my hands, which means I can re-commit to being more Martha-like with more quality homecooked meals, more time for crafting, and GASP! maybe even a workout in the morning.

To all my friends I leave behind in downtown Chicago, thanks for a great 5+ years. You've all been the highlight of my workday.  I raise a cupcake to you!

ZOMG WANT teh frostings. I am SO happy you're not doing that commute anymore -- I thought of you every time I gazed out over the sad strangled interstate.

those cupcakes look divine. And I am SO glad you're done with that homicide-inducing commute. Your life is going to be hours better daily! Love you, L
