Merriment on a Monday

Ok, not so much, but one can hope, right? So as I try to channel my thoughts on getting some work done, more randomness snuck into my brain:

  • Parking lot findings: Today I managed to score the VERY LAST up-close-to-my-office parking spot and was not able to view much of the lot on my way into the building, but I DID see a baby-sized blue glove and wad of gum.  While having that much coveted up-close parking spot is a good thing, it does take all of the excitement out of new parking lot discoveries.
  • Daylight Savings: After turning clocks back 1 hour over the weekend, I'm feeling somewhat time-warped and confused.  Love that my Apple watch and iPhone reset themselves without complaint, but the car clock and 2 others in my office weren't as smart about the switch.  That and my office was freezing, so the heating system must not have gotten the memo.
Alrighty then.  Finally posting this after 8+ hours of meetings, web coding, and fielding end-user computer issues.  Meanwhile, let the commute home begin!

Life and Times

Family Weekend just happened, but let's back up a bit.  Oldest Peep is now a COLLEGE Peep, hence the reason for our family's participation in the big-time event.  This was HUGE because not only was I unable to join in on Move-In Week last month, but I haven't even SEEN our College Chica since she trekked all of her stuff 6 hours from home!  So we dragged her brother with us to the college, then he decidedly took off to the driving range with his Grandpa who happens to live in the area.  Not a problem for Hubs and I who actually took part in Family Weekend by shopping for dorm stuff at Target and eating all the free food we could find on campus.  Granted, we did all join back up to attend mass at the beautiful on-campus chapel, but the weekend sure was better enjoyed without teenagery complaints from the bro.

Meanwhile, this little voice in the back of my head keeps murmuring, "You don't even LOOK old enough to be the parent of a college student, woman!"  Keep talking - I'm good with that.

Christmas Break was Blessedly Divine

Still floating after having a week and a half off from work with PAID HOLIDAY TIME home with the peeps.  If that isn't the best reason ever for taking the new job, then I really don't know what is!  Well, besides the personal office with a window and excellent pay and Starbucks coffee in the lounge area... pinch. me. now.

Since I love my new job, TGIF takes on a whole new meaning for me now.  On the one hand, I look forward to heading to my office on campus each day where there's always a new adventure waiting. But on the other hand, sleeping in is another one of my favorite things to do in life and I would sleep until 8:00 a.m. every single day given the opportunity.  (Unfortunately, weekends and holidays are the only times I get to sleep in these days.)  So for me Friday is just the big "heads up" that sleeping in is just around the corner - but that also involves missing my campus office.  *cue the sappy violins*
