Making a Big Change

May 20, 2012

I am moving my office to the Village of Los Lunas.  The office I will be renting is a 15 minute drive from my house.  It is just down the street from the Railrunner Station and a mile from the new Valencia County Courthouse, located on Luna Avenue.  This move will give me back an hour and a half per day of time and cut my gasoline bill by 2/3.  When I need to be in Court in Albuquerque, I can ride the Railrunner ($1.00 round trip), then hop Albuquerque’s “Downtown Get-Around” which is free for the ride to Federal or State District Court.  Although I have enjoyed sharing space with my Daughter in Law’s ad agency, I’ve really needed to be hanging out with lawyers and, frankly, losing a couple of hours per day in traffic is a bummer.  That left over gas money — I’m sure it will go to the dogs!

July will be fix-up month, painting and carpet in the new place, then moving all my stuff.  August 1st I will officially be housed in Los Lunas.

I am very excited and relieved and anticipating the good things this change will mean for me.  Dogs can still come to work so all is well!

    You will love being that close to home! Congratulations! Great decision!

    That sounds like a brilliant idea! Long commutes are never fun so being close to home will really be a life-style improvement!

  3. A much shorter commute has to be a good thing! And — public transportation to Abq — perfect! Then you can read or whatever rather than having to drive!

    You can stay home longer and play with the dogs! Great move, Penni, and I’m betting you won’t miss the commute at all.
