Last Day of Work

Friday was my last day at KYSRK. It was hard not to get emotional with the kind words and wishes I received from all of my wonderful co-workers. I have definitely been blessed to have worked with such a gracious and supportive group of people these last ten months. I was particularly honored and touched by the toast given by Lance Spiegel and the beautiful cake. To any of my co-workers reading: thank you so much!

Yesterday I drove up to Salinas with Summer. We stopped at Pea Soup Anderson's - delicious. Listened to the Korea/Uruguay game in the morning and the USA/Ghana game in the afternoon with great disappointment.

Today I had brunch with the family and watched my dad perform in To Kill A Mockingbird... best Walter Cunningham and Nathan Radley ever. Great job Dad. Heading back to LA in a few minutes. Bye!

Very exciting morning. Having woken up feeling ecstatic over the Lakers' comeback victory over the Celtics, I was disheartened to learn that by the time I arrived at work it was Slovenia 2 - 0 USA. However, after completing my morning duties I checked the highlights to discover that the US had made a spectacular comeback (2-2). I followed the BBC live updates to the end (including the horrible job done by officials, robbing the US of a third goal and a well-earned victory).

I then checked my e-mail to discover I had received my staging information. My staging is in Washington, D.C. from July 19-20, and I then make the long flight to Antananarivo, Madagascar via connections in Dakar and Johannesburg.

On lunch today I'll have to book my flight to D.C. with SATO Travel. Next week will be my last here at Kaufman, Young, Spiegel, Robinson & Kenerson. I'll miss everyone terribly, but I can't wait for what's to come.
