My last week in my current job

So my exitement for my new position has been tempered greatly by nostalgia of leaving my current job. Looking ahead, I will be gaining new colleagues, experiences & knowledge, but I’ll be leaving alot behind as well.

I started my job in the training department in 2004. I was combing and just stumbled on it. On a lark, I applied and got the position. I still remember the presentation I gave and the questions that were asked when I was interviewed. After my interview, I left the offices feeling ambivalent about the whole thing; I definitely did not feel like I knocked it out of the park. But I got the job and began what would turn into a seven-year career.

I am so thankful to the department I am leaving, to the colleagues who helped me, to the experiences that I had, to projects I was able to contribute to.

Each task that I complete this week comes with the sobering thought, “this is the last time I will be doing this as a trainer”. So it’s hard not to get all goopy inside and look back on the changes and events I was a part of.

Thank you SSD.

Natural History Museum trip

Museums are one of my favorite day-trips to take. We all had such a great time (I could spend an entire week there).

Here is Caleb viewing the Bison exhibit
One of the coolest rooms was a long corridor that contained a large Fin Whale skeleton. They also had a bit speaker pumping ominous sounds into the room.
The butterfly exhibit was awesome, the kids loved it.

Date Night with Kristine

Normally, I am horrible at planning date-nights with Kristine. I did manage to get reservations at a great restaurant tonight though. The food was super-good (it was a mix of French and Latin-fare) and it had great ambience.

This is one of the dishes we ordered, Seared blackened cod with serrano ham.
