The Last Week

In honor of my last week of work before full-time mommyhood and writing, Ellie has decided not to sleep at all and teethe like mad. Hooray! As I'm sitting here at my desk, bleary-eyed and regretting that my IBS prevents me from drinking coffee, I can't help but think that this is one of those things I won't miss about work.... I won't miss being drowsy at my desk and trying to hide it.

Which, of course, got me thinking about the other stuff I won't miss. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of things I WILL miss, but the transition will be easier if I just concentrate on what I won't miss...

  1. Ringing phones. I hate the way these things ring. And then when your coworker is away from the desk, and it just rings and rings and rings and rings... that drives me nuts.
  2. Perfume. I'm allergic to fragrance, people. I'm glad you smell nice and you'd like to share, but come on! If I forget to take my Zyrtec before work, I'm doomed. Today, I forgot it. Again.
  3. Gossip. Couldn't care less about what he said/she said/happened yesterday... Unless, of course, it's really good...
  4. Lost and found emails. Oh no! I lost my press-on nail! Let me email the entire campus and see if someone found it in his tire treads!
  5. Breakfast on the go. Sometimes you just want scrambled eggs, not another damn Pop Tart.
  6. Looking busy. If I'm not busy, I don't want to be busy trying to convince you that I am. Follow?
  7. Being polite. When I don't want to be. Jerk.
  8. Leaving Ellie in the morning.

I think that about covers it. What wouldn't you or don't you miss about YOUR job?

Part of me really wants to say what I don't miss about my other job.. but then I realized it would only make me angry and the list would never end. Let's just say I don't miss my other job.

Ugh, and perfume.. why the hell do people do that?? I would prefer to not smell people than smell their perfume. Why do you have to go out of your way to smell good? I wouldn't want people to smell me at all. It's kind of a weird concept, if you think about it..

They go out of their way, but they don't smell good anyhow! GROSS
