Last days

Today is my last day of work at the law firm. It was my first real job out of college, and I wasn’t even here for a year. Weird, right?

I know I’m supposed to have feelings right now, but I got my first actual full night of sleep this week because Mitten Head slept on the couch and didn’t come beg for food until after the alarm had gone off. And I only woke up once last night because I had a coughing fit and had to get up and find a cough drop in the dark. Yes, I’m 80 years old.

My favorite kind of Mitten is a sleepy Mitten.

I am listening to Bill Mize, and I’m pretty sure dozing off at my computer. Or having an out-of-body experience. I don’t know. I just feel like I’m watching myself sitting here typing, but that I’m not really doing it. Maybe I should get less sleep, because I’m usually a lot more conscious than this.

I just had a random thought cross my mind. Let me tell you about two new blogs I’ve found while puttering around at my job, which ends today, by the way.

Peas and Thank You – A former lawyer, now stay-at-home mom of 2 sweet girls. She tries to eat vegetarian and vegan.

Yes, I Want Cake – A new mom, also a healthy eater and exerciser, who’s on a month-long attempt to eat only vegetarian foods.

Anyway, today is my last day. I didn’t know if I should get cards for people, or bake a cake or something to say thanks. The thing is, another one of my coworkers (one who is much more important to the daily goings-on at the law firm) is also leaving today. And I know people are more upset over that than they are with me. And I’m cool with that. I realize that I’m an easy replacement, and that he, who has been here forever, is not.

As much as I’ve complained about this job (I can’t help it. I’m a complainer), I’m so grateful to have found it. It came around at just the right time (I was running out of savings there for a while and my student loan payments were about to come out of their 6-month hibernation period). I met nice people. I learned a lot about the job, myself, and Hotlanta.

I realize I’ve never shown you my “office,” so I figured my last day was the best time. 🙂

My boss's last name is Buck, so his wife got him these 300lb bucks at some sale.
This is where all the magic happened. All the scanning and printing magic. Note my fake tree.
The sitting area across from where I work. In all my time here, FOUR people have probably used those chairs. One of those people was me.

Maybe I will feel sad about it. I don’t know if I should. Just like I don’t know if I should feel nervous about my new job on Monday. I’ll keep you informed. But right now I’m just tired! Oops!
