Blahhhhging

Posted on: November 19, 2008

While life is kind of exciting around here at the moment, there isn’t much to really blog about. Or maybe I’m just being modest. Meh.

The office packing has begun. Tomorrow night I plan to work on packing up the apartment. The library is doing a food drive beginning next week, so I’ll bring in any non-perishables I don’t want to mess with transporting. It’s a “food for fines” thing and if we aren’t doing something like that (and do charge fines) at my next place, I think I’ll start it. Fines don’t really add much money to the budget anyway and it’s a goodwill thing for the students.

I spent an hour on the phone and internet yesterday getting all my utilities set up for the new place. Decided to get cable and am hoping that I won’t become addicted to TV again. I’m watching almost none anymore and am much more relaxed. Decided to go with wireless internet since the only extra expense was the router and once I have that it’s ours to keep. The only other thing I’ll probably get once I’m there is a subscription to the local paper. It feels good to have that stuff out of the way.

Joined a scarf exchange on Facebook. Waiting to hear from my partner about any allergies and preferences before heading out to buy yarn. Fortunately we have until mid-January to get the scarf knit, so I’ve got some time.

I was given a gift from the library today at our staff meeting. It’s a LittleU Christmas ornament. It will fit in with the general idea of our Christmas tree. DH gets me an ornament each year that is supposed to signify something significant about that year. My time here has been an important part of my life and it will be nice to hang that next year. There will be no tree this year since I won’t be there to put it up and I’m not moving all that stuff with me. I might get one of those little live trees in a pot so my apartment isn’t completely un-Christmasy. But that’s about all I’ll have room for.

In general, I don’t feel all that sad about leaving. I think it hasn’t completely sunk in yet and probably really won’t until next week when I’m walking out the door. Also, the one person who has had been my closest ally and friend here has also found another job. Things are definitely going to change around the LittleU library in the next several months. I wish them well.
