Incubator

Things continue to go well. I am really loving my little apartment. It's big enough that I have all my stuff, but small enough that I feel secure. We had a client that referred to her time in our treatment center as being in an incubator. She said it was her chance to grow in a safe place. And that is how I feel about my little home. Moving away from a home that had become big and cold has allowed me to grow in so many ways. I went back to the house to get the rest of my stuff and as I walked in the house it felt so cold. The house used to feel safe and secure, but the last year has been filled with so much sadness and loss. Moving away from it will allow me to let go of all those sad memories.

I decided to get a carport because they are only $10/month. The one that was assigned to me was the closest one, but it is on a hill and right by the sewer drain. Last night when it was raining I noticed that it was a slow moving drain and by 10pm the water was to my wheels. Because it was on a hill I could just see it flooding and backing up to my muffler. So this morning I went in to say that my mailbox key isn't working and to ask if I could change carports. Luckily they gave me one on the other side and I am thrilled because it's on flat ground. They said that drain had never flooded, but I don't want to take any chances. I still don't have a mailbox key though. Hopefully I can get one tomorrow so I can see if I have any mail. :)

So I can't figure out my heating/cooling system. When the heat is on you can adjust the temp, but it doesn't seem to be working. When I try to turn down the temp it just stay on HOT. So I have been having to have the heat on for a while and then turn it off. I was a little worried about the system because when I first saw it I didn't know how it would heat my whole apartment. But boy it works well. I actually turn it off at night because it would just get too hot.

I was horrible today about checking my work email. One of my co-workers wrote me back and said, "Why are you working remotely? STOP. You should be watching Little House". I wish my boss had never showed me how to check my email from home.

OK, I am going to watch the Babara Walters special on the Royal Family. I find them so interesting and this program tonight looks fascinating.

*Edited: 8:20pm*
I just checked my work email and there was an email from one of my co-workers saying that it was such a dreary day because my smile was not there and I just got a call from one of my techs who just wanted to see how the move went and if I was settled. Oh, and earlier this afternoon my boss called to see if the babies and I were all settled. I guess I really am missed when I am not there. Do you see why I love my job so much?

I used to check my e-mail remotely, but the system is now all screwed up, so I can't.....darn.....but I have texted the bossman on different issues at random times.
