No longer a Motorolan - RonO's Ramblings

Jul. 25th, 2008 01:20 pm No longer a Motorolan

As of about 11:35 this morning, I can no longer claim to be a Motorolan. At that point, I turned in my badge, computer and credit cards to our Admin (since my boss is on vacation and the other member of his staff is in training, and since she has often done this before), and left carrying the last box of stuff from my cube.

I don't recall it feeling this way when I left in 1997, or when I left Sony in 1999, but I'm feeling more depressed than happy at the moment. Of course, we have a fair amount of concerns -- hopefully the adoption will be final on Monday, and we have only had a couple of showings of the house {Hey, if you know anyone who'd like a house in Bartlett, I've got an MLS number to show them} -- which may be contributing. I ran out of 5-HTP last week, which may also be contributing.

But life moves on, and a week from yesterday we get on the road to San Diego by way of Denver and Devention.

For my friends in the Chicago area, I hope to be seeing you all again fairly soon -- next year at DucKon if not before. And we are still here for a few more days.

Current Mood: melancholymelancholy

I understand. I hope the new job and new home bring you as much happiness as this one did.

Best of luck on the journey.

This time around *will* be better than the 1997 departure - then was you going off by yourself to a new and strange place. This time it's the whole family going to a place you have some familiarity with.

I feel for you. I know how whiny I was back in 1997 when I was between jobs for seven weeks. Hope your new job goes well.

Have a safe trip. I'm sending good thoughts your way about the adoption and the new job and the new city... good luck!

house for sale

Hey, this is me the wife (Tara) responding. One of the reasons we bought the house was the big wall of built in book shelves in the living room. They go all the way up to the point of the vaulted ceiling. Of course the only books you want to put at the top are the books that you don't plan on touching again until you're going to be moving ;)

Good luck, and God be with you. San Diego's gain is our loss. Will continue to follow your LJ...
