I think I forgot to say on here thanks so much for the book suggestions - I ordered Canyon Solitude, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and the Year of Past things. I am LOVING Canyon solitude, in fact had to stop myself reading all of it on the plane on the way from Boston to Thunder Bay - thanks so much BSA for that suggestion!
First day went well, some BS back in UH to deal with, but it didn't get in the way of my full orientation, starting my first samples off in the lab and even catching up on some much needed proposal writing. Tomorrow the car goes back, so I did go out and get my last grocery supplies (or at least what I think will be my last).
AND - I found a nice 5 mile running route tonight, feeling a little leaden legged, but it was good to get out and it was great to find a route right out my door that is at least half through a nice park and not all on roads.
