Today was a multiple day of lasts beginning with our annual office ornament exchange brunch. As always, it was great food, good company, and much fun watching Mark steal and Kristie make multiple trips to the table after being on the wrong end of an exchange.
The day ended with another last as we had our only board meeting of the month, one where gifts are exchanged with great food and important business. It was a particularly good meeting as the board engaged in a difficult discussion to reach a decision on the upcoming levy. We used SPACE to keep the focus on the issue as all of us were influenced in reaching a decision different than the original recommendation that I made.
So, it was another day of lasts on my continuing journey to retirement. Funny how so many of the memorable ones are associated with fun, my central office colleagues, and great food. Oh, and thanks Diana for reminding me within 20 seconds of entering the room that it was another of my lasts.
