Last Day of Work

27 Jan
It’s really hard for me to believe it – in fact, it really hasn’t sunk in yet – but today’s my last day of work before going on maternity leave.  I’ve been looking forward to this day for the past couple of weeks because it’s been so busy, but now that it’s here, I’m not nearly as excited as you might expect.  Having been here for only six months and having started some great projects and having just received a great review at the end of my probationary period, I’m actually pretty excited about my work.  How strange to leave it just as things are so exciting – doubly so because I have no idea how long the baby will make me wait before s/he arrives.
Dont’ get me wrong, I’m not complaining.  I’m so lucky to still have so much energy at this stage of pregnancy.  I also feel very good about the ability of my replacement to carry on with the projects I’ve initiated, so I don’t feel as though I’ve wasted my efforts.  With any luck, I’ll have a few days to relax and get the house organized.  And Nanuq will be thrilled that he’s no longer being left all alone all day!
The boss is taking our unit out for lunch today, so we’ll probably end up having a longer lunch period.  Which means I should get to work and tidy up those loose ends before I run out of time!
