To Christa re: Your Last Day
Well, here it is: Your last day at work. It's so weird. I think somewhere in my mind I had envisioned us always working together forever. You know how Butcher sucks people in and it seems there's no escape to "the outside". ha ha!
I'm not really the best at being all soppy and tearful in my goodbyes maybe just cause I know I'll still be seeing you often during our evening walks in the summer and during our weekends together with the friends. But I'll still really miss you here every day on a regular basis.
It's just that I don't remember a time when you haven't been a part of my life (maybe that 1 year you spent in Peterborough). And for the past nearly 7 years, you have literally been a part of my EVERY DAY life here at Butcher Engineering. I've spent so much time with you and it's so hard to think of a day not seeing your cute face pass by my cubicle with your quiet little "morning". And your quirkiness, the giggles shared with Jennifer, the smart-ass remarks to Bill, telling you how bad your are at being a receptionist (you do realize I'm just teasing, right?), all of that, all of those "little" things....and more.
I tell you all the time and I don't know if you take me seriously or not so I'll say it again: I have always felt you were like my little sister, always felt kinda protective over you, always felt the need to give my two cents worth even when you didn't ask for it, always kinda feel like the annoying big sister when we drive each other nuts.
So anyways, my two cents worth now is just that I'm sad to not see you ALL THE TIME but I'm so happy and proud of you for taking this scary step to move on in pursuit of better things. You'll do awesome!
I can't believe it - my lil' sis is growing up!
All the best to you. Keep the emails comin', can't wait to hear the details of your first day!
See ya 'round.
