A Very Emotional Day!

Today was my last day at work and the first day of living full time.
At work there were a lot of tears and hugs and goodbyes, I was almost crying the full time as I walked around the shop saying my goodbyes. Most of us have worked together for over twenty years and we are like a family. I will miss everyone but not the company.

Also I went to the nursing home for the first time as Diana and my aunt’s reaction to seeing me was mixed. At first she asked “Why am I doing this?” and “I don’t like you like this.” After awhile she start to talking to me on other subjects but asked questions now and then about why I am doing this. She also asked about me hair a couple of times. The nursing home administrator was talking to her before I came, so that helped a little. My aunt seemed, I wouldn’t say alright with it, but OK with it when I was leaving and wanted to know when I was coming again.
She did not want the picture and she made a face when I offered it a second time.
So I guess I just have to see how she does with it in the future.

To celebrate my new freedom and got two more holes added to my head. I went to the mall and got my ears pierced for the first time.

I'm sure it was hard to do this first visit. Give her time to adjust.

Now you can do ear ring shopping!
