New job starts tomorrow! I'm excited!

I did a trial run of the bus-to-Metro commute last week and it doesn't seem too onerous--it took a little over an hour each way, and wasn't hideously crowded. The only thing I'm not sure about is how it will work if I have to work late, or on the weekend. The northern Virginia extension buses are a different system than MetroBus, and have wonky hours.

I'm going to have to get used to getting up early again though--I've gotten out of the habit.

I do wish I were a little healthier--I'm on my 2nd round of antibiotics for bronchitis and I've been sick for a month. I'm functional, but I feel like an easily-fatigued shadow of my normal self.

I'm also hoping that I'll be able to get down to visit my family, which is by no means guaranteed. Normally it wouldn't be a thing, since I was just there for a whole week around Thanksgiving, but my 90-year-old grandfather is coming up from FL with my aunt and uncle and I don't get to see them nearly as often as I'd like.

Good luck on your first day! And I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks, I really appreciate it! Today was mostly hurry-up-and-wait sorts of things at the central office, but there was someone else being processed with me so I had someone to chat with during the really dull bits.

I hope so too! I'm on my 2nd round of antibiotics and today I felt like about 70% of my normal self which is the best I've been yet. I do occasionally feel like my chest is caving in, but as one of my RL geeky friends pointed out, that's better than feeling like something is going to burst out. ;)

Totally unrelated to anything, but--could you send me your RL address? I have something to send you.

Good luck! I just started a new job on Friday -- at our local library. :-)

Well good luck to you too! I didn't know you were a librarian!

I'm just a lowly page, as yet. You can't run a library without us, though! :-)
