Ended. Over. Done. Today at 11:45, I handed my badge to my now former manager, and left the building for the last time. And you know what? It felt pretty damn good. Not a bad last day at all – I went in a little late, chatted with people, went out to lunch with the group – and by 3:00 I was home. It was a little bittersweet – I will miss some of the people I worked with. And they gave me some very nice gifts – which was unexpected. But overall, this felt good. And it was totally the right decision to leave. It’s a wrap!
Last night Larry and I went to the Genesis concert – amazing!. It was a beautiful night for a stadium concert – it cooled down a little, and we avoided the rain that had been reported. The band came on late (which was annoying), but they definitely made up for it – great music. The band is getting old – but they really were so good. I’d have to say that Genesis is probably my favorite group, and I hadn’t seen them together before (I’ve seen some of them individually) – so I had a great time singing, dancing (ok, bopping a little), and enjoying the sound of tens of thousands of people all singing the same songs. We really had a wonderful time, and came home happy but tired at 2:00 a.m. (which was why I went in a little late!). We actually stopped for food on the way home – made me think of my younger days where it just wasn’t a night out until you stopped for food in the middle of the night!
Because of the concert, I took yesterday off – had a very relaxing day. Watched a little TV, had a pedicure with Cieara….and I knit just a little…..
Tomorrow is knitting group – so I think I’ll definitely have one if not both sleeves done by the end of the weekend. I think I’m going to win this race (and I hear someone is casting on for socks so she’s just not focused!) – maybe we should take bets! I will say – this sleeve just seems huge. I tried it on, and it is really big. I did a search on the ‘net and Ravelry, and didn’t see any comments about that – so I guess its just the way it is. But its pretty loose. I hope its not too floppy to wear.
Have a great Saturday! I know I will – is there any better feeling than know you have the next week available to do anything you want to do? Ahhhh…..
