My suck for the day (but also my sweet)

Today is my last day of employment with the state of Texas.  Tomorrow, I’ll be self-employed.  Or is it unemployed?

I have three full-time careers at the moment.  DSHS employee, writer and crime-fighting ninja. It was beginning to reach the point where I had too many things going on, so I was doing them all half-ass and I hated that.

I chose to focus on writing and left my ‘real’ job behind.  But in the process, I’m having to leave behind the best, most amazing people I have ever had the privilege of working with.  To spend 11 hours a day with these women for almost four years and STILL love them says a lot about each of them.  Who wouldn’t love a boss that does things like this for you?

And things like this?

Me eating Will:

Yep.  I’m butterflying sad to be leaving these chicks.  They rock my world from 7am to 6pm.  :(

And in memory of my awesome place of employment, I leave you with this flashback of what I “used” to do for a living:

The flying leap across the door frame!!! This-Is-My-Favorite as I used to do the same thing down the hall at my old job. Some parts of us just never grow up (and, there aint nada wrong with it!)

Congratulations! I know we talked about you wanting to become a full-time writer. I’m so happy for you becoming one sooner than expected :D Hopefully you didn’t give up the ninja gig, though. We need protectors in the world like you :D

You’ll still be fighting crime though right? *phew!* =)

Congrats on your decision to focus more on writing! You’re amazing! I just read Slammed last night and pretty much fell head over heels with your book, and I’m deliriously to read the sequel tonight!!! I’m only postponing it so I can get some errands and housework done today which, as you can tell by me writing this comment I have obviously slacked on entirely ;) Just wanted to say “hi” and keep writing!!! I’ll read anything you dish out ;)

Congratulations on being able to be a full-time writer (and ninja)! I know it’s tough to leave a day job you love. Best of luck!

So scary but so brave! You’re an amazing author and thank you for keeping it up!

We will miss you!! Now who will record me and my ridiculous self?!?! :)

Awwww :) How cute and sweet…. and those cookies look awesome! I’ll save some Aussie chocolate (if I ever get some… lol) just for you for one of those cookies ;)

I love this post. Everything about it. {{{Hugs}}} to you and to them, for all doing the hard thing, because it’s the right thing. What a butterflying wonderful bunch of people!
