Three things happened yesterday that have really taken a load off my mind. In ascending order:

-I'm getting a new phone at work! For some reason, when the University folks installed my work station, they gave me a phone that was different from everyone else's in the office. This means that my phone a) doesn't show the number of the caller, b) doesn't have the capacity for two phone lines, and c) doesn't give a visual cue that I have voicemail. None of these are work-stopping, but they're rather annoying and inefficient. However, we had originally been told that it would be really expensive (as in, three digits) to get this fixed, so I was told (and I reluctantly agreed) that it would be more efficient to wait until the autumn, when we are likely going to be moving around, and thus rearranging our phones, anyway.

Yesterday I was told that we were given a better quote (down to two digits), so I get a new phone! This should happen in a week or two - and I'm happy to wait that long, rather than a couple of months.

-We hired my replacement yesterday! Again, this won't go into effect for about two weeks, but at least the end of half-days-at-the-job-I-no-longer-have is in sight!

-Yesterday after work, [insanejournal.com profile] ratzeo and I signed the lease to our new apartment. ♥ This is a place that I had actually looked at last week, and even started the application process for, but I waffled a lot because of the size. I love everything else about the apartment, and the apartment complex is great and well-reviewed, but the apartment is an oversized one-bedroom. So it's about the size of a decent two-bedroom (and probably less expensive), but I worried that this wouldn't be enough space/rooms for the two of us, because we're both people who need our space. Poor [insanejournal.com profile] kyonkun and [insanejournal.com profile] shadawyn have heard about my concerns at length. :P

But on Monday our (larger) first choice apartment fell through, so I took Sean to see this apartment in person yesterday. With the two of us there, it was easier to visualize how we would comfortably share the space - not to mention easier to visualize us making this place our home, which was a big factor - so we went ahead and signed the papers. I'm not absolutely certain we won't look for a larger space eventually, but I am mostly certain we'll be perfectly happy in this space for now.

Which means my two-month-long apartment hunt is over, whoo!

And today, I'm sitting at home in my PJs because I'm going to work two hours late. Granted, that's because I'm staying two hours late today, but at least that means I got to sleep in.
