Tonight I came home from work with tears in my eyes and a red nose. I walked in the door, hugged my mom, refused dinner, drank a pint of unsweetened iced tea, ate 3 Hershey nuggets and then decided I NEEDED chocolate ice cream so my dad and I went and got some. Tonight I was laid off from my job. WAHHH!!!

It was very sweet actually. They all told me I was wonderful and terrific and awesome and perfect (you get the picture, right? Okay it wasn't all that, but they did say I was a really great worker who was enthusiastic and motivated blah blah blah and stuff like that) and they hated to let me go but I'm moving anyway and with my doctor leaving they just can't keep 4 assistants.
I kinda knew it was coming, but it was still a little surprising. And I was even okay with it right until one of the girls got a little teary-eyed (tears of job most likely! lol). You know how it is. If one girl cries it's very likely to set off every other girl in the room. Or me at least. Luckily nothing like that happened. I was mostly sad because I will miss everyone so much. But I have a bunch of email addresses and phone numbers and we've set up a lunch get-together. Working there was a great opportunity. I'm very glad I got to work there. But honestly, I have complete peace about it. I really believe that everything and anything that happens is God's will. And that's enough for me right now. So I was okay until the very end when even his wife came in and gave me a hug and said she was sad about it and they'll miss me. And then when I got in the car I cried a little because we girls are emotional creatures and every major event deserves to be endured with some kind of emotional act. (If anyone understands any of that let me know and explain it to me, lol) But I made myself stop because I was afraid I'd back into another grill or something. We don't need a repeat of that.

Okay, I'm done.

Yes there is a silver lining to every cloud. Now we can be walking buddies. And movie buddies. And baking buddies. And car driving buddies. And sewing buddies. And talking buddies. And stamping buddies. And crocheting and knitting buddies. You get the idea I'm sure. lol. No, I won't make you that miserable. I love you too!
