It’s been a really busy few days. My long weekend Monday ended with an unfortunate calamity involving my car, an expired safety inspection and a big fine. The silver lining is I will never be complacent about this again. I have a reminder on my calendar every two years until I am 105 years old (I figure by then I will be too old to drive). Owning a car is so much more effort than I expected but I like the perks. As a bonus I got my new insurance paper work in the mail yesterday and my monthly payment went down WEEEE. So far this year my monthly power bill went down, my insurance AND my car should be all paid off in less than 3 months so I have some pluses in the financial column.
The last two days I have gone into the office for work which is great for several reasons. I really like getting so see some of my work people. I had two great lunch dates and LOTS of hugs. Plus I got to deliver cookies to some special folks. Also I loved what I was doing which was working with our summer students. It’s fun to be involved in training and the students are young and energetic and enthusiastic. I was kept on my toes for two solid days with great questions and a bit of a refresher for me, it’s been so long since I had my own training, it’s helpful to get that perspective of how far I’ve come. I remember being raw and new and afraid of screwing up, I am glad I stuck it out. I like my job.
Project #notv is still going well. Last night I as tired and almost caved so instead I opted to go to bed early and get a good night of sleep. I find as long as I have some music on I long for it less, apparently I just need noise. I am hoping that starting next week I will fill some of that quiet time with an evening walk.
