about the move

so my office move happened over the weekend
 we packed up
 the movers took everything downtown
 beginning
 thursday evening

we had friday off 

monday morning 
i felt like a kid starting at a new school
 really

 i woke at around 3
 not
 because
 i couldn't sleep

 because
 the cats decided
 to
 alternately
 caterwaul
 race in/out of the bedroom
 hiss at one another 
generally being
 annoying 

toonman slept through it all 

 not me 

i got up around 5
 fed the buggers 
showered
 dressed
 left the house
 around
 6:45 
which is 
actually
 only
 5 minutes earlier than usual


 i walked to 72nd
 the express was pulling in
 hopped on

 4 stops later
 approx 10 min

 i got off at chambers 
walked down
 west broadway 
stopped for coffee
 


 because
 i am no dummy 
i knew the coffee machines
 were 
not 
unpacked
 installed

 i was right

 it took most of the day to unpack 
the important stuff 
deal with
 the 
i need this
 i dont like that 

its all part of my job
 to
 solve 
resolve

 i didnt leave til almost 5
 the subway at chambers
 was so crowded
 i stood like a sardine without the oil
 all the way uptown

 i got home
 opened a bottle of wine
 sat down
 and 
sipped
 and
 yawned
 til about 9
 then
 went to sleep

 i was exhausted

 except for the bad ride home
 tuesday and wednesday were identical

 there's a lot to sort out
 to get settled in

 there is still all the art photos painting to be hung
 the pantry needs organizing
the copy room has nowhere to put the 15 crates of stuff 
that need to be unpacked

 the architects/designers created a great space
 but 
in terms of 

work space
 needs 
its lacking 

several closets have no bar for the hangers 
really
 i am not joking 

there is a conference room
 with
 no
 doors 

who is going to meet in a conference room
 with
 no doors 

there is an awful lot of wasted space 


but
 i can brag
 about 
getting my desk turned around
 so its actually
 a desk 
vs
a long counter with a short 'L' 
under the window


this was taken a week before we moved in


the view is amazing 
even with dirty windows


actually every view is amazing 


we have the entire 43 floor 
you really can see for miles and miles


its a gorgeous building
i promise 
more photos
 from 
inside and out
but
i need to get to sleep
i am still exhausted

none of these are signed
i am just too tired

  1. OMG How are you ever going to get any work done with that view?

    Cats! Mine were at it at 4am this morning. I unceremoniously threw them out in the rain till 6. (bunch of wannabe players!)

  2. A new work home, a new route, disorganization, etc. there's no wonder you are exhausted!! How long did you work in TS? But how exciting and those views!! Just WOW.

  3. It really is a magnificent building!

    Well, cats will be cats. They'll do things that seem perfectly demented to you, but make complete sense to them.

  4. Cats.. they're still dealing with the time change but my Skitty is "caterwauling" EVERY F'ing night.. several times a night just to hear his voice. I'll go get him and bring him in bed with me and he pulls away and goes right back to a spot in the halls to MROOOOOOW. I woke him up from his nap just for payback today. Yeah, like that'll do it. ;)

    Your view is amazing.. but I would sure rather be looking out that window than have it behind me... unless you'd just never get any work done.

  5. SO appreciated, Daryl. I have been looking forward to this post. I especially enjoy the older buildings in the city with their stone and ornament.

    Looks amazing

  6. Oh my goodness, I would spend all day staring out the window!! What a gorgeous, gorgeous view. I'm not in a real hurry for snow, but I'll bet it will be beautiful to be way up there looking out when it's snowing. xo.

  7. I know I'm going to sound like a dummy here - but what building is this that has such incredible views?

    Is it the new building I'm hearing so much on the news about?

  8. The blue skies add so much to your city photos. The photo of the view with the miles of buildings gives such a perspective of how big it really is. Thanks for sharing all this with us.

  9. Pretty fab but I would have my desk where I could see the view! :)

  10. Good job with the desk. MUCH better as you've positioned it now.

    I'd get used to it, I suppose, but I don't like being many floors up. Working on the 43rd, despite the magnificent views, would be a bit shaky for me.
