The day I resign

So today was the day.

I've worked for 3 Springs Water
since 1996.
I started there as a temp,
getting a job after my
divorce so I could raise my two
young sons.

I worked my way up 
from bookkeeper,
to office manager,
to controller,
to general manager,
to President.

With that came all kinds 
of stress as the titles
got added on.

I loved the job,
the people I worked with,
and the customers that
I began to be friends with.

I didn't like the stress.

So today, I had a 
tearful call with a gentleman
that is on our board of directors.
I had a tearful discussion
with my management team.
They knew I would be going..
..just not when.

It went well..
they weren't "shocked",
as they knew our story..
the flood, 
the RV, 
the buyout.

So now that hurdle has been jumped.

I'm sure there will be a
few more hurdles to jump
before we take off.

One more load of bricks
are off my shoulders!


  1. I bet you look 10 years younger already! We can't get over how much better we feel after all the stress was put behind us. It was hard to let go, but it was the right thing.

    It is your time, now to enjoy life.

  2. I also had a hard time letting go!!! I soon got over that. Congrats to you!!!!

  3. Congratulations!! Freedom is right around the corner. :-))

  4. We knew you could do it!!! Soon you'll be free to go, to travel around this great country, and experience the freedom! ENJOY!!!

  5. Congrats! It is ok to miss the stress of the job. The memories of your co-workers and clients will always be with you. FB and your blog will give many of them a means to stay connected.

  6. I too missed(some I still do!) my customers and my employees...but not the job or the stress of owning our own business. Every day I wake up feeling that I am blessed to have stumbled into this life!

  7. Congratulations! The stress will disappear slowly each day. Suddenly you will realize that it is totally gone! It has taken me about a month and finally it feels sooo good! Enjoy!

  8. Congratulations!! Can't wait to see you two out enjoying this great lifestyle:o))

  9. Congratulations! That is a big hurdle and you'll soon be feeling free. Only 2 more months to go!
