Thank you to everyone who left me a kind comment yesterday giving me just the support I needed! It didn't go as planned, but nothing ever does! Our receptionist decided to quit, too. Only, she just left a note with her key and basically said peace out! No explanation, no reasons - just that she quit. It wasn't a surprise to me as she was a pretty emotional wreck, but my boss was shocked. Didn't I feel like a big jerk though when I had to go in and tell him my news!
He took it fairly well, asking me several times in light of both of us quiting, "is it me? Is it something I have done?" Hahahahaha! If only I had the nerve to tell him, but I'm not that mean. He tried in vain to offer me more money, give me time off, etc., but I stood firm and let him know that I was done. Now, I have a little over two weeks to get my desk cleaned up for him and then I'm out of here! I felt horrible I had to drop my bomb on him when the receptionist did what she did, I even had contemplated waiting until today, but I did it and just like many of you said the weight was off my shoulders immediately.
Thank you again for all your support. It meant a ton to me. When I got off work I went home for an awesome 8.2 mile run followed by a big gin and tonic ;) Just what I needed.
I promise, tomorrow this blog will resume back to it's normal running scene :) Until then...
Happy Tuesday and Happy Running peeps!
