...and you're saying, "duh," right? Well, here's the deal. Yesterday was my last Monday and today is my last Tuesday of being "employed" at a job with a set schedule, an office, etc. Yesterday, I didn't feel any different coming to work. Today, I'm almost sad. What's up with that??? (Maybe its the rain.)
I adore being at home and working in my house or in the yurt. In fact, during my three-day weekends, I will do almost anything to NOT come to town. I do all my shopping during the week and if we decide to have a pizza for dinner, I can usually talk Dennis into going into town for me. I think the fact that the dreaded "change" is coming, even though I'm so looking forward to it, is still scary.
Tonight I have to travel to Graeagle (about 30 minutes away) to take minutes for one of the districts I'll be working for and tomorrow night I have my quilting class. These things will be so much easier when I'm not working all day and then going to them; life will settle down and be so much better. I want to paint the interior of the house in fun colors (Dennis finally has agreed that walls do not have to be white!), I want to keep it relatively clean and free of muddy puppy prints, I want to have time to do my quilts as well as my customer quilts. All this will happen beginning, officially, on Monday...so why am I sad? Perhaps because I'm female???
Here are some photos of my office. The woman in the military outfit in the photo on top of the wooden file cabinet is my mom; she was a Marine. I adore this photo of her--she looks so beautiful. Hard to see much (other than my lack of neatness), but I had to use my work camera which was the first digital camera ever invented.
And my boss is initiating a new tradition: every month that has a 5th Thursday, the office is invited to go out for a drink. He's trying to say its a coincidence with this Thursday being a 5th and my retiring and that it really isn't a celebration of my leaving. I'm not convinced!!
