Well, the ball has finally dropped at work. I have given my notice… It seems that they are not going to fire me, although I am sure that if they could they would.
A HUGE weight has been lifted from my shoulders with this breaking news in my life. The entire exchange has been relatively painless, so I guess that all of the stress that I have put upon myself has really paid off… It has felt like I have been living a lie and being dishonest with them (both are true I guess). This has broken my heart everyday for the time that I have know that we are leaving.
On the bright side, I feel invigorated that the monotony of life in Florida is almost over… I had the thought that I will frame a single fallen fall leaf upon my return to the Midwest. This will be the trophy that I reward myself for enduring the hell of two years of eternal summer.
In the theme of posting song lyrics from my morning run:
“Maybe you get what you wanted
Maybe you stumbled upon it
Everything you ever wanted
In a permanent state”
Jamie, try to stay awake. Yo Joe!!!
