Jan Jan Big Fat Pan
After thirteen years, she’s had enough and is moving on to greener pastures; mommydom. Well, she’s already a mommy, but now she’s doing that hardest of jobs, staying at home with the little princesses.
Jan and I have never worked in the same office, as we live in two different cities. Our friendship was born and blossomed via emails and occasional work gatherings. She has become one of my very best friends and while I’m terribly happy for her, I’m wondering just how I’m going to do this day in and day out, without her.
You see, we’ve been through a few things together. Things like.....
Employees with Monday-itis
Co workers with aliases
Co workers with checkered pasts
Mass Exodus of employees
My first DAVE concert (Lover Lay Down!)
Hearing about the 20 or so that followed
Thirteen years of hirings, firings and everything in between
My Empty Nest
Guilty Mother Syndrome
Gas, Heartburn, and bodily function stories. Daily.
What’s for lunch?
Marriage and all that goes with it
Real Housewives Recaps
Any Deposits Today?
Elastic waists versus any other kind
Short Men with Clunky Heels playing the guitar with Dave
BW, B–W, PKW, KGB, CJ, CJ’s MOM, QB
That made me laugh out loud
Rose-isms, Grace-isms, Taylor
Men and all their.....loveliness
Seeing someone we admire elected as President
Animals are better than humans
I am sure we will remain friends always, but our friendship will change. That’s just a fact. And that’s okay. Knowing that she is happy makes it all okay.
For thirteen years, I’ve started and ended my day with an email to Jan, and today is my last day to do that. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go make some more memories.
Cheers Jan! Be Happy!
