Got a promotion at work again. No more money, yet, but my last raise wasn't too long ago, and I'd expect another one in a few months.

But now I'm the Fulfillment Manager. No longer just in charge of the systems, now I work on the whole ware house, including process improvements, layout and staff. That's right, I am now in charge of people. A bit scary, as I've never managed people before. Our management has tons of faith in me, and the people now reporting to me all seem OK with it. And the company is sending me to a leadership/management class in February at the UW.

So we will see how this goes.

Not sure I'll get my reading bingo done for this year. I'm a little over half way done with It. It's good, just long, and I'm pretty busy and can't read for long periods of time. And I still have 1 more book after that. Will probably sign up for it again next year though (and will try and finish out this year's plan, even if I don't make the deadline).

Holiday working at B&N is rough, but I'm doing more receiving now, which is a) interesting (and relevant to current job) and b) means I don't have to deal with customers as much.

We are pretty much set in the new place. Some of our furniture/stuff doesn't fit. So as we have money we'll have to replace some things.

And my car was broke for like 4 weeks. Finally fixed, and it feels so good to be independently mobile again.

We started moving into the new place, slowly however. We got the keys on 10/1, but they were still doing the renovations, so we agreed to give them through the week to finish up. We weren't going to have time to move anything until the weekend anyway. But they ended up needing Saturday too, so we could finally go and look at it on Sunday. Nicely done, a few shortcuts here and there and the new water heater still isn't in. Now I'm trying to pack stuff in boxes and get all of the non-essentials over there. We will probably move the furniture over early November, after Paul is back from his trip to California for a wedding. I seem to still have over a week of vacation to use up, so we'll move the stuff mid week.

The physical therapist signed off on my leg, so I don't have to go see them anymore. The facility I was going to is in the Princeton Club gym on the east side, and they gave me a 12 session pass for recovery (during which they will try and get me to sign up). I've been going every two to three days (per directed) and doing an interval running program given to me by the physical therapist. It's going well, and it's feeling good to work out and be active again. I'm hoping we can get a membership to a gym soon.

Work is progressing, I'm getting more responsibility. Still working out details, updates on that to come.

I did a major push this weekend to get the rest of the apartment unpacked and put away. Not there yet, but the office is finally usable. We have a few more things to set up and clean away. Maybe by march some time...

Lots of people are leaving Best Buy right now, mostly for good (for them) reasons. But this means that staffing is down and my hours haven't really lessened. And they still have to offer me a permanent part-time job. But they say "soon" we'll talk about it. I am getting more tasks handed to me, cause I'm so "capable, creative and reliable". Which is good.

Tomorrow I've taken the day off from all jobs and Paul and I will probably go down to IKEA and pick up some furniture for the apartment. So we can finish setting up the place and get the unpacking done. Paul needs this so that he has a calm place to focus on his school work (it will be harder than ever this year) and maybe a new job option.

We are still getting used to living in the apartment, but it is a lot smaller and it feels we are much more on top of each other (not in the good way) than at the house.
