Museum Going Away Party

Friday was the fiesta my coworkers threw for me (and Kev and Stellan), in honor of our imminent departure. It was also combined with the Krissie Cook Memorial Mission Canyon Table Tennis Tournament. They had all my favorite foods, including snow cones (w00t!) and it was nice that so many people came to say goodbye. Or not - I'm actually still there for another full work week. I got all misty when Karl presented me with a Museum membership that doesn't expire until 2015. That means I can visit anytime I'm in town, but I can also go to hundreds of other museums and science centers all over the world, including several in South Florida. I'm completely stoked, because I've been planning on using my existing membership until it runs out, and I was torn about renewing in SB or getting a new membership in FL. Problem solved!
The tournament was great, Mike and Beatriz were the big winners. However, the best play of the afternoon was Javier and Easter. They were playing hard and fast, it was really impressive. I think that ping pong table is going to get some good use in the future.
It's a good thing that I still have another week there, because I am not ready to say goodbye yet. I love my job and I love my coworkers, and it will be really hard to leave it all behind. I've been there over 13 years, and it's been such a huge part of my life that I really find it hard to imagine what my life will be like without the Museum.
