I am back from two days of Class. I thought it would be weak but it turned out okay. I was pleasantly surprised.
So, I was coming to work this morning and I thought, I leave at 7:20, get into the office at 7:40-7:45, and if I worked in RI, I'd be on the road by 7:30 and I wouldn't be in the office until 8:30, IF there isn't any traffic. Then I would have to leave at either 3:30-4pm or after 6pm to miss the traffic.
BUT, I did find out that they do have an onsite fitness facility, in house chair massage for a nominal fee, miles and miles of running trails right outside of the office building, and if you join the fitness center you automatically belong to the Fitcorps - of which there are several in the city.
Which reminds me, I have to take my Fitness Reimbursement Form to BSC so I can get my $250 rebate for belonging to some fitness activity. Work is just great!
The other thing is if I work out of Smithfield and decide not to relocate, they give me money. $6200 the first year and $3100 the second year - to help defray costs or get a car if you live in the city and have to buy one, etc.
I do have someone on staff who needs to get her license - she's failed twice. Not sure if she's passed yet. I think she started on this odyssey about 2 years ago. Yikes! I told the other managers and HR that I did NOT want her driving the roads! LOL!
I have been using my time without Joe wisely. The house is all cleaned and everything I can possibly unpack is unpacked. It's still a little cluttery but that's because there is really no place to really put anything. Can't wait until the house is done done done.
I did find out that I might be getting a bonus payout in March which on top of the December bonus will go a long way to finishing up the house. We still have the kitchen and living rooms area, the patio - need to redo the brick and level the yard, the back porch needs to be widened, the windows and back wall needs to be done, upstairs bathroom needs an overhaul. And not a lot for the two bedrooms although the front room might be able to benefit from some built-ins.
We should be able to finish with some concentrated effort in two years, the builk of it next year. Hopefully.
Joe was looking in the paper and shouted out that we are definitely going to convert to a single family. There is a house 4 doors up that is on sale for 1.4 million. That's ONE POINT FOUR MILLION DOLLARS!!! The single family market is soft so we have to see what it goes for today. It will be a lot of work.
Missed Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. I fell asleep. GAH! My friends all watched it.
My friend Amanda still hasn't closed on her loft.
I feel badly for her.
She must feel dejected. It's been SO LONG!
Okay. Those status reports are not going to go away, now, are they???
