Our golf outing was yesterday and I have been getting ready for that for the last week or so.  Sorry that I've been away so much...  but at least that event is over and done with!

Now I only have to get ready for a Board of Directors meeting on September 19th, another Radiothon (Cure Kids Cancer) on the 27th & 28th, Breast Cancer event on October 4th, our Children's Hospital Miracle Dinner on October 11th and then another Board of Directors meeting on October 16th! Whew...

PLUS:  We got word a week or so ago that they are going to move our offices to another building on the 1st floor... so no more elevators for me!  But, bad thing is no more beautiful view out the 11th floor windows.  Also, I will be directly across from the helicopter landing area so whenever one comes in and goes, it is going to be pretty noise... I'm thinking noisier than it is up here and that's pretty noisy!  Anyway... I get to look forward to packing up my office and 3 storerooms for the move... I HATE MOVING!  I really do....

So...  I guess it's not going to be slowing down for us for at least the next month....probably longer because they have to clean & paint the area we are going to. 

Oh well... as I read on Pinterest once... "Having a job is the new raise!"  And I am very thankful to have my job!

I hate moving too.   I am very territorial about everything.   And you are right about the good and bad on the move.   I wouldn't miss the elevator, etc. but the view had to be great.

Hope you slow down soon.

Well at least having that many events coming up you won't get bored Daisy - lol!  Good luck with the move.  I might miss the view too but I wouldn't miss the elevator ride.

Yeah... the elevator ride... I definitely will NOT miss them.  

Another good thing is I can swipe in on the first floor of the other building instead of up here on the 11th floor.  Sometimes it takes me 5 minutes or more to get up here and I am late which irritates the crap out of me because I get docked.  

Our hospital is a teaching hospital and we used to operate our own Nursing School and we offered housing to the students, but, a few years ago, we merged our Nursing School with the University of Michigan Flint's Nursing Program and we no longer house the students.

The building we are moving to is the old School of Nursing building.   Most of the rooms are former dorm rooms and have a shared bathroom between 2 rooms... they are used mainly for offices now. 

Fortunately, I will be in the reception/administrative office area and it is quite large with lots of storage and shelves.  I will have to take a picture next time I'm over there. 

I used to work over there in that building between 1990 & 1995 on the 5th floor when I worked in the Employee Health Office.  That building has been known to be a home for bats.  I remember once there was a bat hanging upside down from the EXIT sign next to a stairway... you should have seen all of us going waaaay around that thing just to get down the hall... lol. 

At least I will have a huge view of the outside... pretty much the whole wall in the big office is an east facing window so I will get plenty of sunshine in the morning.  And, I do get a bigger work station.  There is a 3 sided desk/station already there that is way better than what I have now and I am looking forward to have more room to spread all my junk everywhere!  :smileyvery-happy:

Sounds pretty nice to me Daisy so packing up and hauling the stuff should be worth the effort.
