I picked her up and we went out for dinner. We walked around the corner and, to my total shock, almost all of the staff I had worked with were sitting there with balloons and presents! I got a gift cert for Sears, a few independent gifts, and these beautiful flowers. I tend to think I'm a hard one to surprise. But apparently, it can be done!
It made me miss my friends and co-workers all the more. Maybe I'll go back. And then leave again. Cuz that was a darn good "going away" party.
But honestly - I miss them.
