New Chapter

Quick update on my new chapter.  I like it.  It is different, but in a good way.  I’m into day 3 and the days are flying by.  I have a TON to learn but I’m up for the challenge.  Here are just a few basic everyday things that I’ll have to get used to, you know the stuff you don't really think about until it changes:
-          I have to park a lot further away from the building, so to get to my office it takes a few extra minutes – but if I take the stairs (which I do) I get an extra workout in everyday!
-          There are no single toilets here – all the bathrooms have multiple stalls, not a huge deal I’m just not used to running into someone inside the bathroom! I’m more used to not being able to get into one!
-          Also, speaking of bathrooms, the ones at city hall have automatic flushers.  I HATE automatic flushers.  They always go off when you don’t want them to and don’t when you want them too.  I am not a fan.
-          There is a nice break room here with several vending machines and even a coffee machine (yes I like coffee machines even though the coffee isn’t great – I can’t help it!)
-          HOWEVER – there is not a sink in the building for washing or rinsing out dishes – you have to use the bathroom sink.  Seems I’ll be bringing home more dirty dishes than before. :O)
Just some minor differences that I know before long will be like nothing.  Buggy is adjusting well to the new schedule for the most part – mornings are still a bit rough but since she has had some more sleep I can usually start joking with her and get her moving.  The evenings have been a huge improvement.  Both days when I picked her up she didn’t want to leave school and then maintained a great mood until bedtime.  Makes the evenings a lot easier to deal with. 
So far so good.  More updates to come when I have more time!
Happy Hump Day!


  1. Glad it is going well for you! And you are right, you will adjust to those things in no time. :)

  2. Glad you're adjusting to City Hall life so far. There will be up's and down's, certainly, but that's the same everywhere. I have some 'notes' about your above post:
    *You mean you don't like parking 3 blocks away - especially when it's POURING down rain?! LOL
    *It's all fun and games til you catch someone spying through the cracks to see if that stall is taken.
    *Nothing like an automatic flusher to make you feel like you're fat. Seriously - I stand up, it flushes, I fix my outfit, it flushes. I move to open the door, it flushes. OMG I'm so over it.
    *The Hot Chocolate in the coffee machine is not terrible.
    *So those weren't your dishes sitting in the bathroom sink "soaking"?
