I feel overwhelmed even just thinking about writing about the past few weeks. This weekend trip home was a good breather, but it’s old news now.
I ♥ catchup with friends.
Cute little chooky :)
Monitors everywhere with the job transition …
Visualizing tracks and stations on one of the railroads :) I actually think my fingers were just itching to make something, even if it was work related.
One day I spent ripping out and rolling up the carpet in our new office.
The next day I’d planned to get the painting done. But life got in the way.
I am so so sad about this. This Buick was a real gem and a steal of a deal! I was thoroughly enjoying driving something that didn’t make noises and even had electric locks… :(
I don’t handle things like crashing very well. I instantly started crying and gave the guy I hit the biggest hug. And for the rest of the day my innards felt quite shakey!
But because we’re all so anxious to get into the new office space, I took a day trip to Edmonton the next day to outfit our office in good ol’ IKEA furnishings. I spent about 6 hours going through the store, figuring out what would look the best and cost the least, gathering it all up (3+ big cart loads), and loading it into the truck. I found out that no matter how exciting it is coming up with a complete office setup, it’s still a big job for one person!
Saturday night I partially unloaded :)
Thanks to my amazing boyfriend we have some nice new flooring :D Yay!
Thanks to little sis and mom we have a fresh coat of paint (almost complete).
And last night I decided we needed a getaway from work and school, so before I tackled my first solo railroad billing (which I botched, btw. soo much more to learn), we had a quick but lovely meal downtown.
Takeout sandwiches from Leyda’s for our Saturday office bee :)
I just remembered that tomorrow I’ll be moving what belongings I have up here, into a home :) September to present has seen me living out of my car/Eston bunkhouse, living with some kind folks outside of Stoon, and now finally into a room I can call my own.
Don’t be surprised if updates continue to peter out at an all-time slow rate. The light at the end of the tunnel hasn’t quite showed up yet :)
