I gave my current employer three weeks and two days notice. That sounds like a lot, and it is. I gave notice on the 20th of July, the day I posted that email to my blog. But I had a planned vacation from July 24 to the 28th. I didn’t think it was fair to include my vacation week as part of my standard two-weeks notice (my supervisor agreed), so I said I’d come back from vacation and work my final two weeks. Next friday, then, is my last day, and the following Monday (the 14th), I start at the new company.
I took my planned vacation last week. It was a vacation of sorts, but we didn’t get to do any traveling. We spent the first half of the week at the wedding and family reunion. The second half of the week we spent moving in to our new condo.
It was a lot of work. And I’m glad its over. There was still a lot of work to do unloading boxes this week, and I’ve been harried trying to get things done at home and at work. Today is the sixth-to-last day at my current employer, and I have some projects that I HAVE to get done before I go, so that is why I’ve been so absent lately. But I am excited about my new position. It starts in 10 days. I can’t wait!
Crazy times. Crazy times.
