Yesterday I moved out of my office at work. Now mind you it's just a temporary move. No, I'm not retiring! "sighhhh" Just changing offices. As you may or may not remember, I work for a police department and have for many, many, many years. Try 32!!! Yikes! But you gotta remember I was only 5 years old when I started there. :)
Any way, back to my move. Our communications center is being remodeled this summer and my office is the only other office in the building that has a window that opens into the lobby. Unfortunately, when you dispatch, you have to be able to talk to the people that walk in the police department. I mean, if you don't, who will?!? So they will be cramming the whole communications center into my little office. I feel sorry for them because that's a lot of equipment and not much room to put it. It's gonna be so nice for them when it's done, but the next few months will be hard. But it'll be worth it for them. They are taking 3 big rooms and totally gutting them and making 1 really big room for the communications center. It's going to be so nice!! I worked in communications for more than 20 years and it's definitely time for them to get this nice new center.
So, now back to my move. I will temporarily be sharing an office with one of the Sergeants. He works from midnight until 8am and then I'll come in at 9am and use the office until 5pm. The nice thing about this is the office is upstairs and about as far away as you can get (and still be in the building) from the construction. Things are cramped and we're trying to get organized so we can both work there. (He just moved into this office yesterday too because his old office is being taken over permanently by this remodel).
It's kinda fun to get to work in a new area. It just makes things seem different for awhile.Plus since it is upstairs, I'm hoping I'll get back into a little better shape because of running up and down stairs all day. I hope at the end of the 3 months I can run up the stairs without breathing hard. That's my goal!!!
I know this kinda rambled, but that's how my mind is working this morning!! Have a great day!! I gotta go get ready for work!
