Today feels strange. My mind is numb. Although some tears have been shed, I think the floodgates have yet to open. I’ve been lucky to work with some great people. They are kind and caring and have given so much to me in the way of support this past year.
I had wanted to give something back. I envisioned baking some cookies or banana bread for them, but the time to make it happen never manifested. While I did not make the time, they DID. I received a going away breakfast and some awesome gifts.
Afterwards, I made my way to do the various exit procedures. It was a serious of meetings where I felt scattered and broken. *sigh* What was I expecting?
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Talk about an exhausting day. Shortly after returning home from the gym, I found myself lying in the floor. YaYa was doing his spelling test so I gave up my chair in the office. The carpeted floor looked ever so inviting. It was as comfortable as I needed it to be in order to take an hour long nap.
I am wiped out, but there is still so much to do. The FedEx truck left me some paperwork from my new employer. There are several forms that are due tomorrow. It looks like I am on my way down the new path already.
Best wishes, Juls…
So many changes for you! I wish you the best.
You’ll do great!!!
I’m sure of it & I can’t wait to hear (read) all the new info on the new job!!!
I’m so excited for you with Chicago coming.
Have you expressed (or insisted, as I would have) that the boys are along the route to cheer for you & at the end to watch you FINISH?!!?!? If you haven’t asked yet…..DO IT!!! Its important to you & Im sure the boys will want to be cheering you on!!!
I’ll be cheering for you, from Ann Arbor though :o)
What a lovely thing your coworkers did for you. :)
Wow – sounds a little like getting spun through a revolving door between 2 buildings. But in a good way.
Good luck in your new job!
Friends are the best.
Do you ever read Craig’s blog? He has a post up that might be worth a read. He has some wonderful insight and a way with words – you can find a link on my sidebar.
By the way, my favorite napping spot is on the living room floor – when a patch of sunlight is shining in the front window. Me and the cat and the dog, snoozing away in the sun. Looks like I won’t get that for a few days…after all, it’s WA and it’s raining.
Looks like a wonderful send off. Best of luck at your new job! we know you are going to tackle it with the same dedication that you tackle your training. :>)

Change and leaving your familiar spots, friends, cubby, etc. is always hard but you are kicking Butt and will be making new friends to add to the ones you already have. Hope the transition goes smoothly and that you eventually get a break to breath a bit!
I’m so excited for you!
You have a beautiful smile, Juls.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope everything goes well for you on the new job.
