Itâ€™s the end of an eraâ€¦
Today is my last day working as the secretary at the clinic. Itâ€™s bittersweet for me and my emotions are all mixed up.
First, I loved, loved, loved working for the Husband. Over the last two years, we got to spend an extra 25 â€“ 40 hours a week togetherâ€¦ or at least in the same building (depending on whether my mother-in-law was picking up shifts; my father-in-law is the other practitioner). I also really enjoyed being by his side as his built up his practice and working on marketing strategies together. And administrative duties really appealed to me. I like doing office tasks like filing and organizing, and Iâ€™m good at answering calls and organizing the Husbandâ€™s and my father-in-lawâ€™s schedules. Plus, I could write and do my own work in my downtime. It really was a win-win-win.
But, like all great things, it must come to an end. Iâ€™m 33 days away from my due date! Itâ€™s time for me to step away and for my sister-in-law to step up â€“ we hired her as the new secretary (weâ€™re an entirely family-run business). Weâ€™ve been splitting the schedule for a few weeks as she learns the ropes, but today is my last official day. Iâ€™m sad but Iâ€™m happy. It means the new chapter is almost upon us.
Had to get Thai takeout one last time. I canâ€™t remember what I ordered, but it was good.
Would you ever want to work with your spouse? Your family? Your spouseâ€™s family?! Who do you think would make a better boss â€“ you or your partner? We always joked that the Husband gets to be the boss at work, and I get to be the boss the rest of the time.
