And.....she's off!


Ahhh. Thursday. A long day, maybe...if I can get anything at all accomplished today and if Owner plans to be there this evening, I may just leave work early and get a jump on my vacation. Yesterday, was a good and really productive day. There is no way I will get to the place I wanted to be (in my work) before I take off, but I have decided that i can only do what a HUMAN can do. It will still be there when I return (thanks Jos) and they will all survive. The hardest part of getting all things organized and all people on the track that they need to be on while I'm gone is anticipating what COULD happen. I tend to be proactive with most things and it's nearly impossible to predict the coulds. Owner calls me "radar" after the character on MASH, because I generally know what he needs before he knows he needs it. I do that with everyone, or I try to, and they are all a little spoiled. I just know how I hate going into any situation blindly...but they will all have to do without for awhile. Geez, I act like I have never been on vacation before and we do go somewhere most every year. But it is always like this for me, plus I have the added issues of no Service Manager, and no Business Manager. Speaking of that, I decided that I had better get some bills paid today, or the whole place may be in the dark before I return....:)


I want you all to know how much I look forward to hearing from each of you every day, either in my comments or in the blog posting that you do...and I will miss you. I seriously don't think I would have been able to get through the past couple of months without all of you....you have made a really rough period in my life bearable, and you have made me smile or laugh on days when it would have been unthinkable otherwise. Thank you.


Now, I am off to "wash that gray right out of my hair"....ugh, the necessary evils of life. Take care----and I will see you back here next Wednesday or Thursday if not before! XO Out.

Sounds like a good plan to me, (ie. 10 days away from work.) It will force people to become a little creative, and will increase their already enormous appreciation of Jamie. ;)

Now have lots of fun!

Breakfast without Jamie :-( I think we should have made her take us all along!! Hope you're having a great time where ever the road finds you today, Jamie!

Maria said...

Have a great holiday. And yes, it is hard to leave when it feels like so much depends on you being there.

When I quit my job to go freelance and stay home with Liv, I was telling a co-worker that I just didn't see how I could shuttle all of my clients off to other caseworkers, that I knew them best and what they needed, etc.

She gave me this long look and said, "No one is irreplaceable, Maria. We just think so..."

I felt kind of slapped, but in retrospect...they did just fine without me.

I think you are approaching it with the right attitude. You have to take care of yourself or you can't take of others. Have fun, that's an order! :>
