The Last Day of the Most Recent Part of My Life

Much to catch up on today...starting with my special guest visitor:-). Tinkerbelle got in safely, and on tome...which is a minor miracle on a hot, humid summer evening. She seems to have grown substantially since I last saw her a couple months ago (they always do!), but at least I am still taller than her, and will be for at least another few years, I hope:-D

We dropped her stuff off at home and headed straight over to my work party, which was very nice:-) I was surprised that a handful of my co-workers spouses came as well...it means a lot to think that they feel like they will miss me, too. I think that we, as an office, probably see and interact with each other's spouses and kids more than most offices do. So, it was really nice that a handful of the guys' wives (and Boss Foxy's husband) came by to say good-bye.

The boys in the office also gave me a super-gorgeous Coach bag to make my studies oh-so-much easier. I have to admit that I am not really a huge handbag aficionado, but I am definitely a fan of this one. Kinda simple and basic and I likey very muchy (I can't get the link to the exact bag work, but it is on this page, about 2/3 of the way down on the right...the Addison Business Bag). And yes, I have reason to believe that none of the boys were responsible for picking that out...all signs point to one of their wives as the gift-picker in charge. Very generous of them, and I appreciate it a bunch:-).

Boss Foxy says that she has something for me, too, but didn't want to give it to me at the party. The mystery has me intrigued...

We stayed until about 10:00, which I figured was about as late as I should keep Tinkerbelle out after traveling all afternoon. As expected, she crashed when we got home, and fell sound asleep right away. The Boy and I didn't last a whole lot longer, although much of that was related to me suddenly being in a super slutty mood (a martini and a half is maybe to blame...). You can ask me in private exactly what that means if you are curious, but since his sister reads this, I will leave it to your imagination:-P.

And that brings us to today, which is my last day at work. I will definitely miss seeing everyone on a daily basis, and will miss being involved in all of the stuff that we do...but it feels more like going on a super long vacation than it does really leaving. I will still see them, and fully anticipate coming back here to work again. And obviously I will see Papa Bear and Big Sis all the time, and Boss Foxy and I are going to continue our regular lunches once I figure out how it will fit into my schedule. So, it won't be the same, but I also don't feel like I will totally lose touch with the folks here.

Besides, who can be sad when there is a whole week of Tinkerbelle ahead!!!
