That picture above is the sign at the park near the library. It’s the park where I used to take my kids about 27-30 years ago, but the library was smaller and on a different street before.

Even in the internet era, it’s nice to see that some towns value libraries enough to make them bigger. Usually every time I move to a new area I like to check out the library. If you want to find out about events in your new community, or where different businesses are located around town, then a library usually has all that info.

Well even though I wasn’t looking for a full time job, that’s what I ended up getting. It was the first job I interviewed for also. I am in a training class at work for the next 6 weeks. It still seems a bit confusing but I hope to get the hang of it before training is over. The company gives quite a few discounts at different businesses and today I used a discount to get a new tire put on my car.

The discounts around town, the special bonuses at work, and the idea of maybe setting up a 401k almost make it seem worth staying here a for a few years or maybe even retiring here. But I have awhile before I can think of retirement. But Cedar City is as good a place to settle down as most other place I have been. Course my opinion might change once snow hits the roads.

My company (Convergy’s) even does tuition reimbursement for certain majors like: English, Business Administration, and bunch of computer degrees, and a few others that I can’t remember right now. So if I do decide to stay here, then I will check out school for the Winter semester.

OMG, I almost sound like a normal person living a normal adult life..now that’s weird. Hmm, maybe the heat has melted a few brain cells. Well it’s around the high 80’s-low 90’s here in the afternoon. So it’s better than Death Valley, CA.

My Fabulous Five

Now I have been reading a blog from a lady living in Arizona for a couple years now, and quite often she posts different lists titled her “Fab 5”.  Seeing as I can’t think of anything else to post today, I figured I might as well try to come up with my own list of “Fab 5’s”

  • 5 (non-food) things I want to buy: Kindle (never replaced my broken one), camera battery charger (left my in AZ), more time on my cell phone, new laptop, memory sticks to hold more pics
  • Last 5 movies I watched: Fargo, Hansel & Gretel, My Cousin Vinny, True Girt..(the new one), Damn I can’t think of a 5th one
  • 5 things I wish I had a college degree in: Photography, Nutrition, Computer Programming, Nursing, Web Design
  • 5 places I still want to visit: Alaska (yes I have been before, but I want to see more), Coast of GA (hope to visit in October with my aunt), Hawaii, Canada, Australia (need to add PASSPORT on my list of things to buy)
  • 5 things I miss from Arizona: public transportation, variety of grocery stores, funky little coffee shops, pretty flowers/plants everywhere, unique artwork everywhere

Well that’s about it for now. I need to clean up my room a bit before I go stay at my Auntie G’s tonight. She will help me with some of the paperwork I got from the “NH Housing Authority”. Still hoping to get into my own place by the end of the year.
