Thanks, LT.

Making something helps.

No idea why I double posted - obviously not firing on all cylinders at the moment.

Did I share with you what my company gifted me for my 10-year work anniversary? It was a $125 gift card. I'll do the math for you. That works out to $12.50 per year. I didn't feel very appreciated but I did get a good laugh out of the cheapness coming from a company that had upwards of 750 million in revenue last quarter.

Ugh, I'm sorry. My H just got an email about his 15 years with the company where he could choose a gift from various options, and it was stuff like a chips and salsa bowl, a rolling backpack, and a solo stove thing that retails for $80. Like, gee, thanks! I guess they did also send him a commemorative pen. They're a major corporation with offices across the country.

Question for you all: So, I mentioned to Dr. T how I'd thought about walking into the lobby of his new space (to see what it felt like and begin to get acclimated)--it's a public building with other businesses in it, and he'll be in a suite on the second floor--I wouldn't go up there. But I wasn't sure whether he'd be OK with it. He said he'd be afraid of my running into him, and "I probably wouldn't be alone" (I assume with his wife and/or son?). How that would be very awkward. He said if i was a time he definitely wouldn't be there, he would be fine with it. And that he won't be there all day tomorrow, as he has a full day of sessions.

Do I stop by tomorrow? Or skip it? It's probably the only day that would work before my first session there, as he'll definitely be there Wednesday (moving a suitemate) and Friday (the main move), plus over the weekend setting stuff up. And I'll be out of town Tuesday through Thursday evenings anyway.

ETA: It's less than 15 minutes from me, and I may need to run an errand in the area anyway, so I wouldn't be going particularly out of my way. And I'd step into the lobby, maybe stand there a few minutes, then leave. He confirmed that there's no sort of monitored front desk there.

If the opportunity is there and it would help you, LT...go for it.

Thanks, Lost! I think I might. And I'm glad I asked Dr. T about it before trying that--I feel it would have been disastrous had I run into him and whoever he was with. Maybe that's a bit melodramatic, but at least messy.

On second thought, I might see how I feel in the morning. I do feel a bit weird about it after the discussion we had. It was pretty early in session, and I felt a bit odd the rest of session. Like maybe it would be better if I didn't go? Like, would he prefer that? And I'd feel guilty if I went, even though he gave me permission? I don't know...

Hm, I suppose I should discuss this whole thing with him in a bigger-picture sense, where if someone says something is fine, I may still feel bad/guilty. Like, that's coming from me then.

Did you get the sense he was really fine with it or were you picking up on some ambivalence from him? Perhaps he said "fine" but he was actually ambivalent or even wishing you wouldn't go there. And maybe you were able to intuit that even if it was somewhat unconscious on his part because it seems like you're pretty attuned to him (maybe even more attuned to him than he is to you).

Regardless of his intent though he did actually say it was fine, so you should go ahead and visit the office building (guilt free) if you want to!
