Shells of tears
Today was my last day at work.
I was going to do a last post from the work computer but it turned out to be totally impossible to do…..
I was crying too damn much!!!
I love my students and I love the people I worked with: I didn’t realize how much I really did until today. I know that you all have the address to this blog now and some of you have actually read it: cool.
I decided that I wanted you guys to join me over here as it was a way to keep in touch with you all. I hope you decide to come out of hiding and leave a comment or two. (Hint, hint Mr. Oda!!)
Because I know that many of you are going to pop by I just want to say:
My other readers are probably wondering why I didn’t just tell them all this face to face today while at work.
Well I would have if I hadn’t been blubbering away with a cloth stuffed in my face to keep the tears and the snot at bay.
I held through the morning but at lunch time I had to say goodbye to the ladies that I have been having lunch with for the past 6 years and I lost it.
I said NO!! and more or less burst into tears.
I was red faced, red eyed and bubbler nosed before I made it too the office. I was able to calm down until I saw Fumiko and then it started all over again.
I did ok for a little while, almost cried when I signed and honkoed the papers to finish my stay at the company, and made it through desk cleaning with out a problem.
Then five o’clock rolled around and I got up to do the traditional bow and goodbye to everyone and that got shot all to hell when the first people I said goodbye to were the Sei*** girls: tears flowed.
I have been crying on and off all evening now: I have a major headache.
I got home and opened the presents that people gave me and cried even more. You guys are all so amazing!!!
Mr. A gave me these shells painted in a girl’s day design and I am sooooo thrilled about them.
I also got the coolest picture frames, adorable paper mache magnets and gorgeous ornamental cloth. Fumiko gave me a Kendo stick that is soooo amazing!!!
Everything is so beautiful.
Tomorrow I am getting my nails done one last time and then Rika and I are going out for lunch. We are both going to be blubbering.
Then I have dinner with Kim and ugh, it will be so hard.
Sunday I have dinner with Jean and it is going to hurt like hell!!
Everyone is worth coming back here for:
everyone is a reason not to leave.
