Still a busy life

But I’m not complaining.  I keep really busy at work.  I’m getting a workout by delivering textbooks.  I have to push a cart full of books from the library in one building to another and then down a hallway to the elevator, up to the second floor and then down the hallway again.  So far the people I’ve met have been nice.  The only one that hasn’t been completely friendly is the former library assistant who is probably still bitter about losing her job.  One of the math teachers invited me to join other teachers for happy hour today.  So hopefully I’ll make some new friends soon. 

Yesterday I cleaned up the garage and got the remote control for the garage door opener to work.  They gave me a universal remote and I had to figure out how to program it.  I now can park my car in the garage. 

Yesterday I went to the grocery store as I was running low on people and pet food.  I also got Lucy (the cat) a catnip mat, some feather toys, and catnip mice.  She has been going to town with them.  She is so used to going outside all the time and she can’t do that here. 

This morning I had to go to the new employee orientation which seems odd to have it after I’ve already worked for two weeks.  But I also got paid today which is great.  I was actually pretty close in my estimate of what I would be getting so I’m glad that I’ll be able to pay my bills and have some left over for groceries and such. 

I’ve been having random allergy issues every once in a while.  I don’t know if there’s some pollen or weed here that causes the flare up, but it’s not fun.  I just took a benadryl and some tylenol because I’m getting a headache along with the sneezing. 

I think I’m going to try to get to bed early tonight – I was up fairly late last night and had to get up early.

Hope you're okay. You know I am protective of my favorite blogger. You've seemed to taken to this new job swimmingly well.
