last day at the office (sad face)

Today is my last day at work before I take off on maternity leave for a whole year (that sounds like a really long time!). I've been looking forward to this day for nine months but now I'm not so sure. I'm leaving the security of this life that I've had for the past six years and jumping into a new life that I know nothing about (poopy diapers, crying babies, responsibilities, I could go on....). I have all the confidence that I will slide right in to mommy-hood but while I'm in limbo I'm really going to miss:

  • My daily walk to and from work (snow, rain, shine I was walking - FU TTC)
  • The office gossip and dramas ( I think this is one thing I'll miss the most)
  • Overhearing funny conversations (open concept offices are great for that!)
  • Brainstorms (if there was a brainstorm for an event idea, campaign etc. I was in on it, whether I had time or not)
  • New lingo (the under 25s have to keep me posted on the latest slang)
  • 3 pm coffee runs
  • The satisfaction of TGIF

I am now embarking on a whole new job, where I'm the boss! Yeah! I hope our baby is not one of those difficult colleagues :)
