Well today was my last day (of 4 years) with the company I worked for here in Seattle. I started on a temp assignment and then was immediately hired on. But the funny part about that was that I had initially interviewed for that first position and had been passed over for someone else, who after a 2 months apparently ‘didn’t work out’ – so I basically became ‘second choice’! 🙂 Well I had several ‘changes’ where I spent last year as the Corporate Event Planner (a position I REALLY loved)! For those of you who actually read my silly blog (or FB posts) you’ve seen my props (Halloween) and some other work I’ve done.
But today I was told that my position was eliminated, saying that they couldn’t afford to keep a full time event planner. I am sad, but rightly so, I spent 4 years of my life with some good people (and some not so good & down right bad – lol) but it was this last year that at least gave me more opportunity to enjoy creating SOME good events/times for my colleagues (and friends). I will MISS THAT and THEM!
I enjoyed a nice lunch with Michael (BF) to share the news and then sent him on his ‘mental vacation’ to Cannon Beach. HE has a LOT to work on with his job this coming year. I made myself a nice little chicken salad – enjoying some of the butter lettuce (I picked up along with the strawberries & avocados from Sosios Produce at Pike Place). I NEED to take this time to also lose some of this nasty winter/menopause weight… don’t want to end up on the front page of one of these… (poor thing)!
(Not to pick on her, believe me I totally feel for her)! I know I look like crud myself… ugh…
Thank you for all my dear (ex) colleagues/coworkers for the texts and CONGRATS! I truly will miss you and appreciate it. I raise a glass (and a salad fork) to you all. 🙂 And looking forward to spending an evening with some of the ‘Happy Hens’ (ladies who help me launch – the next career ?) lol this Friday!
