my job has temporarily moved downtown while we are waiting for our new building to be built. we have been hearing that we were moving downtown since December, so i've been busting at the seams to actually get down here. the last week in April we finally moved in! we are expecting to be here through this December, but i am hoping that it gets pushed out so we can stay longer! the room where our cubes are doesn't have windows, BUT we are downtown right near the park and it is glorious!
i get to walk by the river & waterfall in the mornings and it's a nice few seconds of calm before the day starts. i've been taking walks during lunch & it's been good because i need the sunshine. it's so nice to just be able to escape work by walking outside & being in such a pretty area. plus when our group goes out to lunch there are so many options of where to eat and we don't even have to get in a car! friday, May 1, was national walk at lunch day so they had booths set up downtown while we were out at lunch. one of my coworkers got a free massage & i got a free t-shirt!
the drive is a lot closer for me now, which i am also loving. it used to take me between 35-50 minutes to get to work in the morning & at least an hour to get home. now i can leave my house at the same time and get to work in 20 minutes. plus it only takes about 30 minutes to get home. so i am saving gas & my sanity!
the downside of me working downtown is that i can no longer carpool with Thomas. he works really close to where i used to, so we would always carpool in the morning to save on gas. however, when our new building is ready we will be moving back to the same location so we'll be able to carpool again. but honestly, it's a small price to pay to be able to work in this gorgeous part of the city! :)
