Life is too short to read a bad book.

I'm not sure if you all remember this post from August 23 in regards to on-campus housing at work. I've been praying for this since July and just yesterday I was offered one of the houses!! I'm so excited. This really is an answer to my prayers. Of course, this means I'll be on call one day per week (Wednesdays) and every 6th weekend. But that's it. So worth it for housing to me. No rent, no utilities, no excessive gas prices.

Oh and best of all ~ I'll have one room completely for my books. And a spare room for when I grow out of that one.

    Wow! Fantastic, Dev!! Congratulations! When do you get to move in?

    That's great news! And definitely worth having to be on call for to get it!

    OMG! How cool! That's excellent news, babe. I'm uber jealous.

    Lori ~ Thanks! Probably in about a month. Is it sick that I'm so excited? I'm so ready for a fresh start.

    Marg ~ It's definitely worth it. That's barely any on-call time at all and it saves me close to $800/month.

    Holly ~ Thanks! I'm so excited. I cannot wait to move. I get to buy bookshelves. I get to setup a library! I get to organize my TBR pile!

    That's great Dev!!!

    Wow, that's sounds wonderful. What could be better than saving $800/month and having room for books. I can't think of a thing. I'd be walking in the clouds too.

    Dev, I do remember the former post and am soooo glad this has worked out for you. When things fall into place like this I always take it as a sign things are on the right path.

    Woo Hoo!!

    Izzy ~ Thanks!

    Renee ~ It's great. I can pay of some bills, get caught up, and actually maybe get something into savings.

    Rosie ~ I think that too. I just can't wait to get moved in and settled. It's still a month away, but I wish it was sooner. Ah well. It'll be soon enough.

    Dev, you'll be in and settled before the holidays! That's great.

    Rosie ~ I might actually do some holiday baking this year! I haven't in years past because of the room it takes up, the time, and the money. This year, I may be able to tackle it. I'm hoping to make some Georgia Pralines :-)

    That's amazing!! Congratulations!

    Jen ~ Thanks! I'm excited. A little nervous about the on call, but I'm going through training starting Oct 13, so hopefully I'll feel more comfortable with it after that.

    I'm so happy for you sweetie, CONGRATS!

    Wena ~ Thanks! I'm excited. I'm actually looking forward to moving, for all the work it is, I'm looking forward to it. It'll be a nice change.

    Now the twitters make more sense ;)
    Saving money, unpacking books and have a little extra money to actually put away. What a great boon! Congrats - you so deserve it!

    Cindy ~ Thanks! I just wish I could start moving already. I have to wait for the person who's in the place now to move out ~ his new place is currently empty, so I'm hoping it doesn't take too long.
