My skin is reflective white and pasty. And I just spent way too much time out in the sun today. I rather imagine that I’m going to start really hurting between 4-8 hours from now. Then let the whining begin.
So I’m sitting in the dark music room/office that Todd and I share, wondering where the hell the Aloe Vera gel with lidocaine is.
It was carnival time at Bren’s school this evening. I would have enjoyed it more if it had been cloudy and cool, but the kids had a wonderful time. I ended up volunteering for a scant 20 minutes in the full sun for our class’s ring toss. Now it’s time for a cool bath, aloe gel, and something light and cottony to wear. Tomorrow will have to be a “no sun” day for me.
In other news, my last day at my office was good. I got my transition list to both bosses, had a lovely lunch with them and gave them both hugs goodbye. I hope the next person in there does an excellent job for them and makes me look like a slouch! They said really nice things and it felt like a good closing for the whole business. Dave, the number one boss, was a really good guy and he made me feel like he understood that they couldn’t compete with this opportunity.
The one thing I feel good about with all of this is that I know I left the position in good condition and I got everything I possibly could do wrapped up. The person following me will be able to start with the structure that I’ve implemented and build on it/adapt it to their own style. I have no regrets about how I did.
Monday will come quickly. I have much to do between then and now. I hope I manage it because I can’t let my class take a bad turn and we have social obligations that have to be met.
Time for that aloe vera… I don’t want a miserable night…
