Packing, packing, packing. Sorting between yard sale pile, E-Bay pile, and 'take to George's house to use until RV' pile. We're already exhausted and we haven't even started loading a truck yet! Tonight into tomorrow it's supposed to snow 3-6", and on top of that it's only going to be 14 degrees on Saturday. Boy oh boy.
So, on top of all the stress of packing and moving...my boss came back from vacation on Wednesday morning, and handed in his resignation...*sigh*. It hit me pretty hard because we've been pretty close throughout the 15 years I've been with the company. We both came about the same time. I never saw it coming. Today, the higher powers up came, assessed the situation, and promoted me to Chief Operating Officer! Yay...(I think). Of course I didn't tell him that I want to retire in a year...(hopefully he won't read my blog!). I'll give it my 100% for the remaining time that I will be there. We were at work long after everyone else left, deciding how to delegate duties so that there are not 'under' utilized people, or 'over' utilized.
Fun stuff, eh? :)
I know several people who successfully kept their RV dreams under wraps at work for some time. I'm not sure I would be able to do it. I think about it all of the time, and just about everything I want has something to do with the future on the road.ReplyDelete

You sure are living an exciting life with the promotion, the new to you house, the wedding, the retirement, the full timing. Whew....makes my poor little life seem majorly uneventful. Are you SURE you can fit in the rally? :-)ReplyDelete
I hope that promotion brings a big pay raise to help you get your perfect RV sooner!ReplyDelete
