My vacation was bliss. It rained nearly the entire time and there isn’t much to do in the off-season on the Washington coast, which was alright by me. It allowed guilt-free wearing of pajamas all day, multiple naps, catching up on the last book club novel, House Hunters International marathon, working on puzzles, and taste-testing the myriad clam chowders of Ocean Shores. No job, no kid, no responsibilities. Just a whole lot of spectacular nothing.

Vacation’s over, back to the bittersweet real world… It was the last day at my long-time job at Washington State University. My last day as a paid Coug! Boxing up my things and walking down the stairs for the last time as an employee = surreal. Drinks with some of my favorite co-peeps = a lovely end of an era.
