It’s funny how life can change so suddenly, based on the people around you. One day everything is fine, and then bam! things change. I want to preface this post by saying that the changes are affecting me negatively, so this isn’t a complaint or rant. Just an observation, if you will.
Yesterday I got back to work after my trip to Devon/Red Deer. I’ve been working on an audit with a co-worker, and she’d been off the week prior, so I was eager to chat with her and to have us align our work again. She dropped a bombshell – she told me she was leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. I wasn’t surprised, as she isn’t completely happy where she is, and this will be a much better place for her. But I was disappointed. She’s a good co-worker, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her and working with her. I’ll miss her.
The bigger aspect of this is that the company she’s going to work for is the one we have been auditing! So, to prevent any perception of impropriety, she is being taken off the audit, except to finish off her paperwork. That leaves me with more responsibility than I had two days ago! It’s a bit daunting, but I do think I can handle it. It just caught me off-guard. So the last two days have been busy, filled with adjustments, emails and phone calls.
On another, much more fun and exciting note, I’m going to Vegas baby! A couple of friends and I found a good seat sale, and now we’re jetting off to the city that never sleeps 🙂 It’s over the May long weekend, just for a couple of days. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see what the hype is about this fabulous city!
