Today is my 25th anniversary at my job. I was surprised that everyone was making such a big deal about it. It actually means a lot to me, but I didn’t think anyone else really cared. There was a balloon with a brownie on my desk from my office mate and friend Therese, the company brought me a bunch of fancy cupcakes and another coworker, Rita, brought me flowers.

I confess, I feel very happy and content at my job for the first time in a long time. I had so many people say such kind words to me.  People really do care, and sometimes I forget that.  Or maybe I'm feeling so warm and fuzzy becasue I just have a sugar high from the 2 cupcakes I ate?

They are going to set a date to take me out to lunch.

By the way, I am an estimator at a large commercial printer. It is both a tough job because you need to know so much—and a very easy one most of the time—when you have been doing it as long as me. I enjoy it because I love numbers.

I don't expect to be hear another 25 years--I plan to retire in 14.  That's not as long as it sounds because the first 25 went so fast.

Cool! Happy 25th anniversary! It is nice when people show that they care. I forget that as well. The people around me in my daily life seem so self absorbed, then again I guess I can be that way too but I do make a genuine effort to really listen to people, so maybe I don't give that impression. Not sure.

I wonder where they're taking you to dinner. I hope it's good and you have fun. :)
