When I walked into work this morning, the Accounting Manager said, "Friday's your last day, right?" Then she patted me on the shoulder and gave me a sad look. I thought, I bet I'll bawl like a baby on Friday.
Then I turned the corner and saw my office. I loudly said, "Oh, my!" Yeah, not exactly the kind of words I usually say, but that's what came out. See the pictures to see how beautifully decorated the outside of my office was. I have these huge windows facing out to the hall and I can barely see out of them, they are so covered with crepe paper. I started crying, and couldn't stop. Thank God it wasn't loud boo-hooing, but still I cried.
The two posters were made by one of our graphic artists that I work with daily. I especially like the frog on the alligator....
The food is unbelievable and I've been snacking since I got here. The cards (four of them) made me cry even more, although they were funny as well. (Right now I'm eating double chocolate zucchini cake, omigod.)
My boss gave me a wonderful card with a note that was heartwarming. And she gave me this awesome plaque that says, "just take it one, gigantic, earth shattering crisis at a time." That fits the job we do here, and also fits my new job. I just love it.
(I'm sorry the pictures are blurry. Took them with my phone. And I uploaded five but only a few are showing up. Maybe they're in picture limbo.)
