OMIGOD, how'd it get to be October?

Wow, it seems like only yesterday it was September 1!

Big news: I QUIT MY JOB!! I have been a happy dancing fool since I submitted my resignation on Friday, September 26. I'm officially unemployed this week because they wouldn't let me take my vacation at the end of my notice. They wanted me to come back and work one day after my vacation. WTF?!
"Fine," I said. "Pay out my vacation. I'm done." Their rationale for it is pretty skewed, too.
"What if you hurt yourself on vacation and claim LTD?" they said.
"What if I hurt myself on the day that you want me to come back to work and claim LTD? How is that different?"
I love being smarter than other people, especially when they realize it! Oh, and get this. They told me that I'd have to come back for one day at 1300h on Thursday, the 2nd. Um, did you not read my letter that was quite clear that my last day is Friday, October 3?

So I'm doing schoolwork, knitting Jorja's blankie, hangin' with Nermal and trying to get some running in. My new job starts next Tuesday. I can walk to work, it's still 4 days/'s pretty close. Really, who could ask for more? I haven't had a single regret about quitting, which makes me know that I've made the right decision. I feel great and my friend Alli says I sparkled at work (I never sparkled at work before) as soon as I handed them my resignation. WHOO HOO!

So, here's to ME!
