First day on the new job

So far so good.... I figured out how to get online here at the office and since they don't have much for me to do, I don't feel bad about getting on the Internet.

Well, when I went down to the parking lot this morning to get on my bike, I discovered that somebody had stolen the bike seat!!!!! I mean of all the days to do this, it had to be on my first day of work. What a bummer. I had to take the car and fortunately Golf didn't need it today. We have one more bike, but I haven't tried using it yet so I will try it out tonight. I might also consider just walking. This office is 1.8 miles from home and I don't think it would take me more than half an hour to walk. If I could walk to and from work, I wouldn't have to worry about not getting my exercise! It would, however, take longer to get home, and after Golf's been with that baby all day long, it might be an inconvenience. I'll talk to him about it tonight. But it has been a question about when I would get some time to exercise when I'm working all day long and come home to more chores and most important, spending time with the babe since he doesn't see me all day long. I feel lucky to be living so close though. There are some people here who are commuting a LONG way to get here.

This job will end up likely being a two week gig. That will be just right since the school year will begin right about then and I can get on the substitute teacher's list. The greatest thing about subbing will be the fact that I will be home way before 5 PM and can help out with the kidlet.

I purchased a pink beach cruiser to ride back and forth to work on, so you can have your old Schwinn back. It is still a rock star and even if you don't want it you could sell it on Ebay. It is a very nice bike. My job is 2.8 miles from my house ON A BIKE PATH so I will be getting my regular exercise that way. GO ME!
