Feels Good!

I can't help it, but that song is going through my head. Who sings it? "I feel good...you know that I would now....doodle doodle doodle do"

Any way, I turned in my letter of resignation at my CLJ today! Since it's Sunday, and I am one of the few pathetic souls required to work Sundays (every Sunday for the past five years mind you), I was able to sneak it into my boss's office without anyone knowing. He'll find it when he comes in the next morning. I know. It sounds chicken, and while I am a chicken, I had to do it today because I won't be back there until later in the week. I wanted to be a good employee and give them a full two weeks notice. Thus, it had to be today.

The gal I was working with knows, and she was freaking out: "Whose going to work every Sunday? OMG, they will probably try to make me do it! I'm not going to do it. Yada yada."

Maybe I am putting them in a bad way about the Sunday thing, but it is really time for me to move on, and I don't think they will be all that surprised. This CLJ was perfect when I was going so school, but now I'm not going to school, and I have so much work as it is, that I really had to decided to cut something. This was my first choice, obviously.

Ahh...to be a fly on the wall tomorrow :)

Yee haw! It's been a long time getting there, and the usefulness of the job is no longer there.

Congratulations on moving on!

Exactly! I've been there 5 years. It's hard to believe it, but it got me through grad school so I'm outa there. Thanks Mary Jo.

That's right. I can't do everything. I'd like to, but I just can't. It's scary giving up a pretty decent part-time pay check, but I think I'm on borrowed time there any way. There are serious talks of cutting back hours and laying off staff. Part-timers are some of the first to go.
