no more work for me...for now

Well, I did it.  I worked my last day until September 29th.  It was hard as hell to get out of the office today, but I did it.  Granted I went in at 7am, since I woke up at 5am and couldn't go back to sleep, then I stayed until 5:45pm.  Long day...with no break, no lunch and several things left undone.  But, oh well.  My boss was really great!  I gave her my home number and told her she could call if we forgot anything.  She told me to go and don't think about work.  She told me I needed to take this time to focus on my daughter.  (That's pretty great coming from a boss!)  Y starts the big job of managing the department tomorrow.  I hope everyone goes easy on her; at least on her first day.

I met with the cat sitter tonight.  She seemed really nice.  Too bad she rang the doorbell when she got here.  Bailey ended up hiding pretty much the entire time she was here.  I finally had to go pull her out of the closet so the cat sitter would know what she looks like.  I hate to think about leaving her home alone for two weeks.  I've never left her that long before.  I always have someone come and stay with her but the person that usually does that for me, is staying with my parents' dogs.  Oh well...I'm sure she'll be fine.  She'll be fed and brushed each day and my neighbors said they would pop in on her too.  Honestly, I think she will be far more traumatized by me bringing Sadie home then she will by being left alone. 

So tomorrow should be quite a day.  I'm having the car seat installed, still have several loads of laundry to do and have to buy all the last minute items.  Then Friday will be packing day. I can't believe I'll be on a plane in 3 days!

I cried when I left Freckles for our 1st trip to Kazakhstan and you are so right about Sadie being worse on Bailey
