One More Day

I have one day left at work and it is going to suck. The BS level is still running high but people are telling me how sad they are to see me go. VP#2 is still in denial. He keeps saying "I need you to do this next week" boy they better get someone new in there quick. I am doing my best not to feel guilty about leaving. My reasons are good ones and it is not like I'm going to work for the competition. I just look at my kids and remember I did this for them. Mommy is a way more important job. So moving on...

I am also quiting smoking starting Saturday morning. I have tried this before, I hope I can stick it out this time! I mostly smoke at work now anyway so it should be ok. At least I won't have other smokers pushing me off the wagon. Wish me luck!

In swap news... My SP11 got her box and seems pretty happy with everything. I love these swaps. I get to meet all kinds of cool people!

Don't let them bring you down! Take the leap! Trust me, it is all so worth it. And thank you so much for the great package! It was home when I got home this evening. I will share with the other two tomorrow, hee hee.

Congrats on two accounts- Leaving your job (left my last one!) and quitting smoking- my grandma had part of her lung removed, and is now going throw chemo and radiation. Have a good last day!!!

OK, reality slap and hug...

You are doing the right thing (both the job and smoking thing). They just need to get over the fact you are leaving. You gave them plenty of notice and it's now their problem. You did good. Walk away and know that your family is where your energy needs to focus.

If I could reach through the internet to give you a hug, I would. My goodness, congrats on the no smoking. I am sure it will not be easy but this is for you, your life, and your family. Keep focused. Oh, oh...the money you save (which I understand could be substantial since cigarettes are not cheap) could go towards wonderful more positive things for you...massage, weekend trip, fiber/yarn, longer life.

They'll understand, but it takes a bit time ;) And I hope, you don't suffer too much withdrawl after quitting. I quit 3 Years ago and it was hard. But now, I have enough money to buy yarns without bad conscience *g*
And yes, I loooove the KnitPicks needles!
