As I type (and this is difficult, mind you), I am consuming a FRESH Krispy Kreme donut. Yes, fresh my friends. As in, made this morning just for my hungry little belly. My wonderful co-worker, Melisa, surprised me with fresh Krispy Kremes and a hilarious banner on this, my last day of work. I have actually had TWO days of going away celebrations, which is pretty amazing considering I only worked here for six months. But that's just the kind of folks they are. I definitely consider them more than co-workers, they've become friends and part of my support community.
[Sidenote: Shut. Up. Even better, "Grease 2" is on Bravo right now. Cool Rider. That's all I'm saying.]
Yesterday was lunch at the Country Club and a wonderful gift from Starr that will fit perfectly in the blank spot on our living room wall (pictures to come.) In the afternoon, the staff of the Oncology Practice threw a little cake and snack party for me, complete with a signed card by everyone including the mail room guys. Even Grumpy Mailroom Man gave me a hug. So sweet.
Then, I had The Most Amazing Opportunity Ever last night. It was a Trinity School fourth grade teacher's dream come true. But it deserves a post all to itself, so you'll have to wait. Sorry!
After TMAOE, I came home to two calm, happy dogs and a husband who wanted to go hot tubbing. Bonus! So, cute hubby, cold beer, hot tub- perfect way to end a long, full day.
It is bittersweet to leave this position. I have enjoyed many parts of it and have loved working with everyone in this office, but I am so excited at the thought of getting back in the classroom sooner rather than later. Thankfully, my part-time work this summer will enable me to still see them from time to time. But an explanation of that will have to wait until the next post...
I promise, it all ties together.
