Closing Up Shop
It has been amazing how long it has taken for me to clean my way out of six years of stuff in my office. I've never had a clean office, but my desk is organized when I leave each day. I have been working on it since March, going drawer by drawer, shelf by shelf, and we have reached the last day of school, and I can say that I am packed. There have been a number of odd feelings over the last few weeks, but overall I remain excited, optimistic, and energy-filled about my move. I realize that I won't be moving away from issues as they will be the same core issues with different faces and maybe at times greater volume. I realize that I'm blessed to have a job, and to have a job that I love. I am also grateful for the wonderful people both adults and kids that have filled my life during my tenure in Kirkwood. At 3 p.m. tomorrow, I will be ready to dive head first out the door, but my well-seasoned patience that I have built over the last year will need to serve me for just one more month. Tape the boxes, throw away the trash...it is time to close up shop.
