After one week at my new position, we’re starting to settle into a pattern living at my mom’s. Although, when they say you can never go back, we’re living that at the moment. We’re all trying to keep our distance from each other, but the house is small, so we bump into each other a lot.
I’ve been driving to a park and ride and then taking the bus into the city. The first day, I didn’t get home until 7pm, I left campus at 5:45. Now, I’m getting there earlier and leaving by 4:30 and getting home by 5:30, even with stopping at the local wine store 🙂 If I was driving, I’d only save about 5-10 minutes, because I’d take the same route the bus would. But, I’d have to pay for parking whereas the bus is free for me as university staff.
Daughter Person is really liking her new daycare – she actually wants to go to school every morning. The center is really small, but the teacher enjoys what she’s doing and it shows. We haven’t had any potty accidents except the first day she was there (yay!), so my biggest fear hasn’t materialized.
Our house in VA had 6 showings this weekend, but we haven’t heard any feedback yet. *Fingers crossed* that we hear something shortly.
Money is flowing out a little more quickly than it’s flowing in due to all the moving and the registration fees and license fees, and not being able to rely on our systems for saving money (like our large freezer). We’re limping along as best we can, and hopefully we’ll get some new systems in place to help us save money.
How have you adjusted to your new life when you’ve moved?
