Walking between the raindrops *

Tomorrow I work my last shift at JYSK. I will have worked there just shy of 6 years and it feels weird knowing that I am almost finished. I will miss many of my co-workers, especially those who have become good friends. It’s kind of like the end of an era, since I am the last person left of the original crew from when the store first opened. Crazy. The district manager was in today and did our “blue sheet”, which is basically a score sheet for the store. My cash area received 9.5 out of 10, so I can go out on a good note. 🙂

Moving Day is just around the corner. On Wednesday the movers will show up to pack the house; Thursday everything will be loaded onto the truck. And on Friday, after we clean and drop the key off to the lawyer’s office, we will no longer own this old country farmhouse. Then on the weekend we will drive up to Petawawa with the stuff the movers won’t take (liquids, personal items, etc) and check in to Grey Gables Manor Bed & Breakfast until our stuff shows up.

I am both anxious and excited to start our new life up there. But I’m also sad to be leaving behind all my friends and family. I know it’s only a 3 and a half hour drive north, which doesn’t sound very far away, but it certainly feels like we are moving to the ends of the earth. I’m really trying to go into this posting with a positive attitude, otherwise I will be miserable.
