and my last lunch. jeff, janel, lisa and I went to boneheads. sorry, no photos, but trust me, we laughed a lot (socialist practices are fine if it’s family, right?!) and they’ve promised to let me know about the next time they go.
and then I said my goodbyes, loaded up the car (3 boxes, 3 pictures and a stuffed briefcase) and. left.
one quick stop at roswell high to signoff on the landscaping for the tennis courts (I have a feeling my RHS racquet club treasurer job is going to take a lot more time this year and thank goodness I’ll have the time – and – note to self – NO MORE treasurer jobs. really!!!) and then to cast-on cottage to see when I might be working. big surprise! yep, I start Monday at 10am. I’m not one for too much time off. I vaguely recall that one week after I graduated college before I started this 27 year thing. my mom was visiting and we planned my wedding. so yeah, not like a real vacation week. but that was the last time I wasn’t employed. the last time I wasn’t collecting a paycheck.
so this all seems very strange to me right now.
but the weekend is full (birthday celebrations, two appointments with students to pick out yarn, knitting group, groceries) and I’ve got photos from last night’s party to work through…thinking a digital scrapbook page…so maybe I can keep the strangeness at bay for a bit. and then maybe, I’ll get absorbed into the new stuff, and the strangeness will pass before it really hits me. right, I’m sure that’s how it will go. right?
