Last Day at Work

Its my last day at work. Woohoo! As of right now I only have 2 hours left. I keep telling myself that although there have been a couple of times like at breaks where the tought runs through my mind....."if I leave now what are they gonna do? Fire me!" hehe..... I'm a good person though and I know they need me so I will stick out my last 2 hours.

On another note. Kelly is still trying to figure out the house thing for us moving. He has called several places and they don't allow pets or small children. I get the pets but small children? Apparently Madison isn't wanted in those places. I really don't mind the pet thing I could live with finding homes for the kitties but I just don't think I can give Maddie away......she's to much work! just kidding hehe......I wouldn't know what to do without her. He has put in a call to the main branch where he works to help figure that out otherwise they will have to send him to another shop, which I'm okay with. Honestly I'm not dead set on living in Ketchikan, I'll go wherever it takes to be with my hubby again. I'd just like to get things figured out since we have to be out of our house we are in now by the 17th! Either way it will be Alaska somewhere. They have branches in Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks that I know about other then Ketchikan. Obviously if we can't get suitable housing in Ketchikan with all of our children they will have to send him to a different branch! Although right at the moment I could understand if they didn't allow 10 year old boys!

Anyway keep us in your thoughts and prayers please! I am still feeling very good about things and know it will all work out the way it is supposed to! Have a great day! 2 hours to go!!! woohoo.

Prayers going up for your housing situation, Terri!!!! What a wierd rule about the small children. I agree, I can see why 10 year old boys would be more of a "menace" to the property than a little bitty girl!! =) But I feel the same way as you, I'd be keeping all mine, too, thanks very much!! =)

Congrats on the last day of work, HOORAY!!! So glad to hear you'll be reunited with your husband soon.

Congrats on the job thing. Good luck on finding a home. Also who watched your kids this summer while you worked?

Anonymous said...

The countdown begins!! and the excitement of leaving both the job and Portland.

Prayers and thoughts at this time - and feel sure something suitable will turn up very soon. Sure the company will help Kelly in finding a suitable property - they would certainly not wish to lose someone of Kelly's skills.

Have a great weekend and take care

Kila said...

Wow, your last day!

Good luck with the housing! Must be nerve-wracking. I'll pray for you!

Steffi said...

It´s exciting-the last day at work!I know that are good and bad feelings!And now your countdown begins.Good luck,Terri!I wish I can move from here too...

Beccy said...

Terri, you are so brave taking such a big step. Good luck with the house hunting...that is so weird not allowing young children!

Debs said...

Good luck. YOU will be in my thoughts. I don't get not having small children either. I have met some "adults" that do way more damage than any child could do.

ChrisB said...

I'm a great believer that things happen for a reason so I'm sure the right housing will be found even if it means a different town. These last days will speed by now you've finished work.

Jocelyn said...

This is super exciting! I hope things shake out with the housing situation...what a cool adventure Alaska will be.

Debbie said...

Yeah!! I totally know what it feels like to be counting down the days and hours to the end of an undesirable job. I'm excited for you.

And you are in my thoughts. I know you'll find somehwere to live. Somewhere that you can keep ALL of yor children! ;)

frannie said...

yay for last days at work!!!! how exciting!

and I will take Maddie in a heartbeat!!! I'll even pay for her flight! :) she can stay here just until you find someplace that will take her. :)

Beckie said...

No small children...how unfriendly is that. Is it a retirement community (I say that in jest because I don't think many people actually retire in AK).

It will be so good for you when you can get the fam back together regardless of the exact location.

Take care.

Pamela said...

dress them up like your grandparents and tell everyone they are short.

Irene said...

Keep up the wonderful positivism! I'm rooting for you! ;p

miraclebaby said...

Yay!!! NO more work!

You have so many Beckys reading your blog:)

Susie PSU said...

No kids? Isn't that illegal unless it is a retirement community?

la bellina mammina said...

Finally!
Glad it's finally happening. Keep us updated...you're in my prayers.

Melanie said...

I hope your last day went well! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. How is the housing situation? I also understand the no pets thing, but no small children? There should be a law against that. I will keep you in my prayers.

Ellie said...

I can't believe you are at the end of your employment already! Time is just flying, isn't it?

I hope you find housing and everything goes smoothly. Keeping you in my prayers...

I am amazed, as your other commenters are, that small children are an issue regarding housing. Seems unfair...

Stacy said...

I hope you find a good place to call home! Hope you made it through the last 2 hours! Keep us posted to where you end up!

wolfbaby said...

Alpha Dude 1.5 said...

We'll be praying you all up real good!

Blessings.

Heather K said...

YAAAY!!! You made it!!! Not long now!!! I'm so happy for you Terri...going up on the barge will sure be a cheaper mode of transport! But I'm kinda sad that we won't be getting to meet...
I hope they figure out the housing situation really soon!
I'll be watching for the news...take care. :)

Emma in Canada said...

I hope the housing thing works out. I hear that town is lovely. I'm still willing to guest post. Let me know.

Amy W said...

Give us updates on the house thing when you can!

Karmyn R said...

No small children? WHAT? Crazy. What is you signed a year lease and then had a baby - what would they do?

I'll send positive thoughts and prayers that the perfect house shows up.
