Phase two.. Complete.

Phase two of operation Life Change is complete. Today is my last day with the big Ernst & Young. It's good to leave on a high note, I hear. I worry about my boss being stressed out with having to deal with an inexperienced team, but that's what she gets paid for, I guess. I worry about my team members who don't know how to deal with my boss and who are intimidated by her moods. I worry about the fate of my little team without me.. not that they can't function without me, just that they won't thrive. My boss will be in meetings and they will be left to flounder and then they will receiver her wrath when she finally reviews their work. Oh well. Nothing I can do about it now.

I've been packing all week.. a little at a time. C and I plan to move me next week sometime. I've found an apartment in Tyler that I want to look at, but it won't be available until mid-December which means I'll either be staying at a motel or I'll be doing a lot of driving... probably both. I'm not looking forward to any of it, but I'll live. I'm just ready to be settled, but it'll be a while until that happens.

Monday is C's birthday. Since he didn't get me anything for our anniversary (besides our Austin trip), he's calling his guitar his birthday present. So, all he's getting on Monday is a card and some t-shirts from the Gap. I'm going to his house today and we're going to hunt all weekend. He's built two box stands and put them on two different properties, so we've even got some variety. I've never been hunting before, so I'm excited to go with him, especially since he loves it so much. I'm not buying a license, I'm just going to sit with him. Are i-pods allowed?

I can't believe it's already Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for.. I'll be thinkin' on it for another post.. especially since I'm so boring these days. I would like to say thank you to my wonderful friends for all of the kind words of encouragement and for their time and laughter and letting me vent through this stressful process. Friends are such a blessing.

So, happy Friday everyone. Happy last day of EY to me. Happy future.

Sara, I feel for you honey with the upcoming move and all. But as you clean out all the things that have piled up in corners of your place, you clean out a lot of things (at least I did) in your mind and your past.

Now you have your future to look forward to, and I am so happy for you. Hearing you talk about deer stands and hunting with your man, I smile. Big.

I remember those days, although they were with my dad, it still makes me remember. Especially around Thanksgiving since thats when we went every year (even as I lived in vegas) for a whole week.

As far as iPods, yes I would think they are allowed. God only knows how I wish I would have had one during my hunting times with Dad. All I had were butterscotch candies that he kept feeding me to try and keep me from talking.

Love and miss you.

You are my hero. I love you!

No ipods allowed. You must be able to hear and you can't risk using "headphone voice" and spooking something away. Take a book.

Staring a new job can be almost as tramatic as leaving an old one... I said ALMOST! ~ jb///
