#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | My Last Day of Work

It's here. My final day with the county Fair. It's been a bitter sweet two weeks and I think I'm still in disbelief that I really won't be driving the 25 hellishly long miles out here tomorrow. 

Leaving a job is tough, but the excitement for my new one is slightly over-shadowing the pain of the goodbyes today. It's not goodbye forever right? #letsnotthinkaboutthat

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love! 

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

 First a little business. Here’s the scoop:
  • Each Wednesday create a post about what’s going on in your life and #hashtag each item or story. See an example HERE. Be as creative as you want! 
  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


Alrighty then, here we go...

Cleaning my desk out this week reminded me of what a hoarder I am. Not hoarding really, but  just being a "stuff" person in general. I have LOTS of stuff. Most of it's crap, knick-knacks, personal tacks I use on my bulletin board, three kinds of lotions and chapsticks, all sorts of stationary, photos, a high-heel tape dispenser, business card holder and on and on I could go. It always seems to accumulate wherever I'm at #holdonwhileicrawloutofmyoffice #somuchstuff #someonehastocarryitdownstairsbecauseimacripple

I did most of the clearing out of my office while no one else was here, to avoid the pain #itsnothappeningifnooneelsesees #ifatreefallsinthewoods

As much as I tried to knock out a bunch of projects before leaving I left a few that I hate doing. I know that makes me a terrible person. At least it's not the hard stuff #someoneelsesproblemnow

We are having a farewell lunch for me today, and it will for sure not be Whole30 #eatingmyfeelings #itsthelastdaysowhynot

My boss keeps saying they're never going to find someone as great as me. It makes me feel awful but amazing at the same time. Sometimes you never really think you are that good at your job or reflect back on what you have done until you leave it. I guess I was pretty dynamite #killedit #bestever #setthebarhigh

There are definitely some people I'm not going to miss #imlookingatyouneedysponsors

Mostly there is just this weird feeling in my gut. It's a cross of butterflies of excitement and the gut-wrenching hurt of the goodbyes this afternoon. I may have to veer off Whole30 again tonight for a stiff drink when this is all over #istillcantbelieveit #offonmynextadventure #drinkswillbeneccessary

What are you confessing this week? Link up!

  1. Bittersweet for sure, friend, but you are gonna rock the socks off of your new job! I think you should totally indulge the feels with some ice cream and brownies tonight...just sayin'! ;)

  2. Hey, considering my last two jobs ended rather abruptly and not in a good way I say enjoy the moments, the goodbyes and the excitement of starting something new! And enjoy all your treats!

  3. Congratulations on your last day! Enjoy a drink tonight. You deserve it!

  4. Holy those two weeks flew by! I pretty much live in my office so it would take a million boxes for me to pack up all my things if I left! From Scentsy warmers to extra pairs of socks, theres a little bit of everything! LOL

  5. This is so exciting for you, though!! I'm glad you have enough memories from your job to make you a little sad- but your new job will be so great! Congratulations, again!

  6. so excited for you!! doesn't it feel so amazing to know that the legacy you're leaving behind is an amazing one? just goes to show that all of your hard work has been recognized and appreciated!

  7. I can imagine changing jobs is a HUGE ordeal and a wide mix of emotions. Enjoy the dinner and some drinks to celebrate this big milestone though! :)

  8. So excited for you to start the new job and not have to drive 25 miles! Yuck! But I'm sure the goodbyes will be hard. You'll just have to hang out with your old coworkers outside of work!

  9. It is bittersweet to leave a job, but exciting for a new job and all the fun (even the not so fun) things that come with that. Cleaning out my little cubby was so hard because I rarely took anything out, just added to it.

  10. First days are always bitter sweet, I hope today went well for you!!! Enjoy that goodbye lunch, those calories dont count. Duh! And best wishes on your new job!!!!

  11. I completely understand how you're feeling with it being your last day (ummm especially the part about leaving the hated tasks unfinished). So excited for you and your new job, can't wait to hear all about it!

  12. How cute is that little boy dressed as a fireman?!? Ihat's a wonderful feeling to be acknowledged for your hardwork and abilities. Savor that. Best of luck in your new endeavors!

  13. Bahahah... love your comment about your going away lunch definitely not being Whole 30!

  14. I'm so excited for your next adventure. You're on to a new bar to set the highest ever! :)

  15. In the wake of perusing such astonishing works, your heart gets empowered.
