the end of an era

Have I mentioned before that I don't like change? Yeah, I really don't, especially when it's not in my control.

This afternoon, my long-time across-the-hall/over-the-cubicle-walls/lets-go-knit-at-lunchtime colleague moved out.

She's got some really great things happening, and exciting new opportunities ....

Still, my stapler's gonna be lonely.

  • I'm sad for you, but oh! so happy for her. I hate feeling two ways at once.

    And poor stapler. Perhaps you could arrange a playdate?

  • Exciting opportunities = Yay!
    Change = Harumph.
    Losing a quality partner in crime = Boo.
