I'm currently at the house my 'rent's built (figuratively, not literally), because MY GRANDMOTHER HAS NO INTERNET! And I have no TV in my bedroom at her house. I know neither of these things are life-altering, but when you're used to having these things at your fingertips, it's a big shock when they are gone.
But I remind myself, she's taking me (and my ridiculously fuzzy cat) in for 5 months, and I need to be thankful.
Yesterday was the "big move". It took Achoo and I two trips in both of our cars, but we got everything down to GMa's. I was ex-haus-ted when I got home, and pretty much passed out at 10pm like a rock. But, I must say, Achoo was incredibly wonderful though the whole process, and I was so happy to have him help me though the entire thing.
This morning, I got up and brought my car over to the dealer to be looked at. It had been making a very loud noise for a while and since I'll now be commuting 2 hours each day, I wanted to make sure everything was ok with it. $460 later, I have a brand-spanking new Hub Bering. Whatever that is. It's a big hit to my credit card balance, but it needed to be done. Safety first.
While I was waiting for my shiny new Hub Bering, I unpacked and organized my new bedroom. My father keeps commenting on how much stuff I have, and I keep reminding him that I'm moving from a 4-room apartment into 1 room at my Grandmothers. Of course I'm going to have a lot of stuff! My grandmother was pretty impressed that I got everything put away as quickly as I did. But, when you've moved 21 times in 9 years (yes, folks, 21 times in 9 years. College, then I've pretty much moved every year since I've graduated...), you become very good at packing and unpacking.
Tomorrow starts my first day at my new job, and I'm tres excited! I'm looking forward to actually having things to plan, implement, and operate! I'm looking forward to having a say, to showing off what I can do, and to doing it well! And I'm looking forward to gaining some new experience in a new area and building my resume.
So wish my luck, and really hope that this move was a good one, and that I can make the money situation work. Take care, and hopefully I'll have internet up and running soon at work so that I can post about how AWESOME it is!
