Well, about work. We have a new office as of last Monday. When our lease ended this year, my employer bought property and built it out to work for us. He's been working on it for months, and isn't done yet, but last Friday we packed up the last of our things, and over the weekend he moved the last bit to the new address.
When we arrived at work on Monday morning, everything was in place. Our IT guy had all our phones and computers, printers, scanners, etc. set up, the kitchen area was stocked, and we were ready to go. It's nice to finally be here in this brand new office. The kitchen and bathroom are beautiful, new carpet, new ceilings, fresh paint on all the walls, new doors, new lighting. He really did a great job.
Looks like I need a picture on the wall. We have lots around the office, I need to snag one. The bookkeeper is on the other side of the partition.
Isn't it pretty? My boss did it himself - first time he's tried a design like this and it turned out really well.
So...this is where I spend my time at work. Until I'm RETIRED and FULLTIMING it.
Update on Craig's List sales: I sold my piano today! It is a Yamaha Portable Grand Piano and was in perfect condition. I just never learned to play it, and am happy to have the money. A college student learning to play the piano bought it, and he was really excited about it. He had money ready for me in his pocket, I think he was going to try to negotiate, but when he saw the piano's condition, he pulled out his wallet and added $50 to make the full asking price. Nice!
That was a big listing - now I have three more large pieces to sell, dining room table and chairs, baker's rack, and an antique platform rocker. For now that's all the furniture I'm selling. I hope the dining room set sells soon. Then I'm going to put a table in the dining room and put all the smaller things there with prices on them.
Where I live, they have a community garage sale every year in October. You sign up, they give you the signs and put you on the "map," and on the day of the sale you put your stuff out on your driveway or in your garage or carport. I've never done it, but this year I SURE AM! (And probably next year, too, if I'm still here.)
I'm starting to gather things now and marking them with prices so I'll be ready when October comes. Anything that's left at 3:00, AmVets brings a truck and picks it all up for you, so then you have a tax deduction (and don't have to haul it away.) That's a pretty nice deal. For everyone.
My credit card balances are going down, down, down. This month I'll knock off another large chunk.
Take care, everyone - it's the weekend! : )
