Morning Meanderings… The End Of An Era

1aaaaaaaaaaaaa1

Saturday the 24th!  Egads…. in three days I will be on a plane for New York.  I feel like I have so much to do yet… shopping for me, shopping for the hubby, pedicure…..

If you have been following what has been happening here lately you know that tomorrow we are moving out of our current office space into a building we purchased.  YAY about our first building!!!  But…. if I were honest, I am a little sad too to leave the space I have worked in for the past 10 years.  My focus today for Saturday Snapshot is my office, as it looked this morning when I popped in.

This (above) is my desk.  Our office was in an old school, we officed out of the school library.  I find that poetic. 😉  As you can see my computer is gone, my phone is gone and the shelves are bare.

Here is the other side of my desk.  My chair has a label on it saying it goes with my desk.  Every box is labeled “Sheila’s Desk”, Dawn’s Desk”, Office storage”, etc…

This is the rest of the library space in the “throws” of being packed up.

Empty shelves have always bothered me…..  😉

This is the center space where all the Pastoral staff worked.  This is the cubicles that will be taken down tomorrow afternoon and moved to the new space.

This is the desk across from mine, my co-workers desk.  This is the original Librarians desk with a new front on it to match my desk that was built and placed in that space.

 

My job is a Family Life Administrator.  I work with the Children’s and Student (Teen’s) Pastor as well as the Connections Pastor.  What does that mean?  I keep track of classes, run all paper work for the three of them, contact people and keep on-line groups of people interested in studies, marriage classes, child dedication, baptism, membership.  I am also the Special Events Coordinator and I plan out events like a Fall Kick Off Party, summer picnic…   I really enjoy what I do.

I… am now heading outside to finish mowing.  In about an hour friends are coming over and we are going motor cycle riding with them this afternoon.  As busy as I am now, the break and hanging with friends is a welcome one. 🙂

 

Stay safe everyone this Memorial weekend.  Any fun plans?

  1. Enjoy your new space! The empty spaces left behind tell their story, but you can now write a new story.

    Here’s MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  2. New beginnings are always a little exciting, a little scary, a little nostalgic, aren’t they? I hope you’ll post photos of your new offices. In the meantime, enjoy your bike ride!

  3. Moving is never fun but hopefully the new office is just what you need. Our weekend is pretty busy with the Jimmy Buffet concert tonight and shopping tomorrow. I’m hoping Monday is low key.

  4. Sounds like you have a very rewarding and fulfilling job. Enjoy your new office.

    I see why you’re going to miss it. It’s a lovely place. SO vintage. I love it.

  6. Good luck with your move.

  7. I can see why you’d feel sad about leaving that lovely space.
    But time for a new adventure – a change is as good as a holiday, as they say 🙂

  8. It’s kind of bittersweet, isn’t it? I’m sure you’re great at your job!

  9. Leaving an old office for a new office is always bittersweet. Hope you love the new place. Here’s Mine

  10. Moving office is nearly as stressful as moving home I think. I hope you settle in easily, and enjoy your trip to New York.

  11. On the bright side, looks as if you had someone pack for you!. Last time I moved an office (2008). My co-worker and I packed everything, and put everything away. Of course, my OCD kind of liked that…..I was in control! LOL
