endings and celebrations

Last Friday was my last day at work. It was also the day I picked Babs up from the airport to celebrate my birthday! You can probably guess that it was a very... surreal day.

Eleven years went so fast. I guess that's what happens when you get to work with an amazing, smart, fun group of people that you really genuinely like.

I'm lucky in that regard.

I may not have always loved the work (in fact, I frequently didn't), but the people and the mission were ones worth working hard for. Leaving at the end of the day was really, really hard. In a way that surprised me. I teared up more then once, and walking down the street it felt like everything should be different.

Its not, but I guess I already am.

I will miss this place. 

That night it was time to pick Babs up from the airport. It was good to have her there that evening.

Saturday was my birthday!
33 is shaping up to be a pretty big year already, wouldn't you say? I celebrating by getting up early and spending a long, hot day manning our yardsale with Trav, Babs, and Gwen. We did get visits from some neighbors and friends, which made the day really nice.

That night Babs took me to dinner.

Sushi + Babs = a happy birthday indeed.

It was a good and exhausting set of days.

Just one of many!  5 days to go...
