thanks erica! smile

i did use my pedometer on sunday when i went to letchworth, but at the university i could tell you down to the number of steps how far each parking lot is, i know, cause when i'm laden down with books, computer, breakfast/lunch/dinner, a purse, umbrella, jacket, etc, (and i often make multiple trips to retrieve things to lighten my load) trust me, i know! they truly have no idea, must think we just come in 9-5 with a little sandwich for lunch, never realizing how much work, etc we cart back and forth! ok, rant over, kind of sad that every day as i pull in to the parking lot, i'm reminded daily that a quarter mile walk from the nearest parking lot is really not acceptable as the closest handicapped parking! there are 8 spots on our side of campus near the buildings, and if you don't arrive before 8 am, good luck getting those. and even last night, tried to pull my car around at 8 pm and those spots were filled with non-handicapped parking cars since those spots are in front of the library.......grrr! ok, rant really over now.........but i am one of those few people that does speak up, have been calling the parking office, talking to various people, involving the ombudsman, etc to try to figure out how to rectify all of this.........i also emailed the vice president of something or the other at the university to inquire as to where the recycle bins are in the new $57 million dollar sustainable construction eating/shopping/student service area of campus; they made a big deal out of how environmentally mindful they were about construction, have a "market" with "green" products, etc, and yet, no one thought of recycling! every time i go over there to eat, i ask the people who work there where to throw my aluminum foil, paper container, etc, and they look at me very puzzled and ask their manager, and of course, this never occurred to anyone, ok, rant over now! LOL! don't worry i'm not angry all the time, i have learned to compartmentalize or i'd drive myself crazy........i know, i care about things WAY too much! that's both good and bad, caring about things is what allows us to accomplish things, change things for the better, etc, but we have to be careful not to let things get to us.

have a nice day! smile
