On abandoning ship ...

My parents are going on a week-long vacation to San Diego in July. I was invited to come. It means quittting my job earlier than anticipated. I figure an extra $1,200 in student loans is worth the sanity a few weeks between the craziness-that-is-current and the-craziness-that-will-be will afford. I am relishing the idea of a few blank weeks to buy books, bake and freeze meals, sit on a beach and move my stuff from one dwelling to the other slowly instead of forcing my poor boyfriend to move everything in a 12-hour-stretch. It feels like I haven't had a break that long between employment since the eighth grade.

I just put the letter with my new quit date on my editor's desk ... and from the other side of the cubicle heard him swear loudly in shock as he picked it up.

At least I'll be missed??

What's another $1,200 when you'll be in it a couple hundred thousand anyway? Ha ha

Haha. Dave cracks me up.

And of course you'll be missed. If you ever think you might not be, picture my sad face when you leave me.

Only FOREVER.

Dave makes me laugh. I miss you already, when are you headed out? Oh and tell your boyfriend he better treat my Brookie right! :)

Brooke! It's so good to hear from you again. You're more than welcome to link, but only if I can do the same. Love the blog by the way! (Sorry I posted here, but I had no idea how to reply. I'm still pretty new to this blogging thing)
