I was expecting all that. What I wasn't expecting was this:They really went all out. I had to remove several strips of toilet paper just to sit in my chair, which also contained a huge pink bag with a baby gift lurking inside. I haven't opened it yet.
I'm so thankful to have been able to work with these guys. Most women might have been uncomfortable being thrown into an office environment with 5 men, specifically an environment consisting of truck driver coming and going. I think the guys were a little hesistant about me coming to their office too. They weren't sure how I would fit in, whether I would be easily offended by their cowboy/roughneck/laid back demeanors. They just didn't know me. I fit in like a duck in a pond. We've all had so many laughs, so many inside jokes, so many good times together. Despite the sometimes stressful environment when stuff just doesn't make sense or seem to be grounded in any kind of logic whatsoever, we've managed to maintain a really positive working environment and have fun.
I'm going to miss these guys. I won't say I'll miss working, because I'm so thankful and so blessed to be able to stay home with our baby that I can't express my gratitude to my husband enough, but I am going to miss my co-workers. The great thing about working for this company is that Nick still does, so it's not like I'm never going to be back to say hi. There will be plenty of times when the baby and I will come to take Daddy to lunch and of course I'll stop by to see my boys, but it won't be the same as the day-to-day stuff that we have gone through together. They will leave a hole in my life just as I will leave one in theirs.
See ya guys...I'll be back, but until then you'll just have to blog stalk me. Love ya!
