This morning, at work, we had a small celebration for Greg's 10 year anniversary. He's a year older than me, and he didn't work as a temp first, but still, it made me realize that it's not much more than a year and a half until I reach my own decade-mark.
Wow. I am so blessed to have worked in such a wonderful place for over nine years (including my temp months).
And wow--I can almost taste that $100 gift certificate people get on their 10th anniversary (5th anniversary was a pen set, whoopee). It's getting so close, I've desired it for so long, and I just might make it yet!
It's wonderful to have a good population in Minnesota. I wish you could have been with me when I went down to the Redwing area years back--hundreds of Bald Eagles pass the winter there, where the river never freezes over. In the morning, there are loads perched in the trees near the water--it looks like something out of Alaska!
Of course, me, I'm awaiting the day I see a wild Golden Eagle. =) Don't have those out here.
