I am ERed!

just came home from my last day at work
they gave me a little party, gifts, etc - patrons came by to say "see you outside the library"

(due at the hospital at 530 in the morning for 730am surgery)

Welcome to the rest of your life.

First task (after recovering from surgery): timing how long that silly grin on you face lasts!

(Hint: Use a chart marked off in months and years...)

Congrats and a speedy recovery to you.

I had a belly laugh that started on my last drive home from the airport that continued on and off for several weeks - now it is just a smile/chuckle when I enjoy the fact that the BS is over - Enjoy.
