Sad but…

Today was my last day at work.  It was hard to say good-bye to my co-workers and to my students.  I will miss them all a lot.

We were talking today, though, about another teacher who left July 5th.  It seems like years ago that he left!  I know that my co-workers — and probably the students — will adjust to my departure.  And, of course, as I get started in my new job, it will be better for me, too.  It’s only this actual moment of separation that is hard.

I’ve done this a million times before in my life.  This time seems harder, though.  Maybe because there is still so much unsettled.  Where will I live?  When will our house in Portales be finished so we can rent it?  It all seems a little hopeless right now.

But Monday I start my new job.  Everything will be new and shiny for a while at least.  And hopefully it won’t be long before my husband and I are settled somewhere in the Albuquerque area.  Then life can begin to get back to normal.
