Moving On...

About two years ago I very methodically cut my work hours back due to family issues and just trying to handle too much. My initial intentions were to flat out quit my job but my employer asked me to stay on to work one day a week or on call, until they could find a decent replacement. They finally found someone, even though it took a LONG time. For the past two years I have been, technically, a part of the office, and they included me in all of their outings, parties and social events. Since I haven't really been back to the office to work since last April, I'm sure most attachments to the job are pretty much over, including the social stuff. I guess that was to be expected. The realization that my working "relationship" with the office is pretty much over was when we did our taxes for the year. I realized that I hadn't really worked at the office in about a year. *Sigh* Time to move on.

I'm still missing a job I left two years ago, so I kind of understand the feeling. I aslo stayed on working part time for a while while they replaced me- and after "just to help finish up a few projects." It makes the grieving process harder!

Good luck on the marathon training!

Thanks for visiting Cheri! It was a good place to be. I hope to find something as "comfortable" -- It was challenging but I felt good going to work most mornings. It was nice to technically leave under good terms.
