The good news: I’m feeling more at peace about quitting my job. I’m that much closer to the reality of leaving – I’ve even started cleaning up my disaster area of an office and my haphazard mass quantities of computer files. And I spent $52 filling up my car with gas today, so I’m pretty eager to reduce my commute from 40 miles to 40 feet.
The even better news: I’m going to the beach this week on my final work retreat. Sun and surf + alcohol + last hurrah with dearly loved co-workers = my idea of a good time.
Also, the website didn’t plummet into oblivion the moment I quit, like I feared. It’s speeding right along, in fact. Mom and Dad are each working 80 hours a week and eagerly awaiting the day when I can dedicate myself full time to assisting them.
Also, also, I’m going to see the musical “Into the Woods” this weekend, I met a potential new friend, my Internet friend S just did something very big and awesome, things between Darwin and me have been terrific lately, and he and I have made a no-fried-foods pact that we’re sticking to pretty well. My dress pants fit better already – not that I’ll need them! ;)
So today I am a happy camper. By the day after tomorrow I’ll be sunburned and crabby despite my best efforts, but for now I’m basking in the glow and ready to crank up my “beach songs” playlist.
