Well, the countdown is done, finally. I feel like I have lifted a load from my shoulders. A new chapter started? Certainly. If I were to name the chapter, I would title it Back To Being Me.
One irritation is that EVERYONE asks "What are you going to do?"
I have been working since I was 13. My first job was as a carhop. You are probably as old as me if you remember carhops ~lol~. At least I was introduced to the work force with a really fun job. I was lucky to have a couple of fun jobs in my life. So what am I going to do now ? WHATEVER I WANT!!
Cullip Industries gave me a very nice going away.
I told John I refused to think of it as a party because I was leaving ~lol~. I know they will miss my knowledge and experience.
I came to work Thursday to find my work area decorated. John called it retaliation for all the times I decorated his area when he came back from vacation. Like the time we moved empty boxes in his office and called it the new stock room.
He invited the entire shop to lunch at a local Italian restaurant. We ate well and several contributed memories they had of things I had done or said. I was blushing...it was a lot of fun and a very nice send off. And I received a very generous gift from Cullip.
