Today is my last day of employment with the state of Texas.  Tomorrow, I’ll be self-employed.  Or is it unemployed?

I have three full-time careers at the moment.  DSHS employee, writer and crime-fighting ninja. It was beginning to reach the point where I had too many things going on, so I was doing them all half-ass and I hated that.

I chose to focus on writing and left my ‘real’ job behind.  But in the process, I’m having to leave behind the best, most amazing people I have ever had the privilege of working with.  To spend 11 hours a day with these women for almost four years and STILL love them says a lot about each of them.  Who wouldn’t love a boss that does things like this for you?

And things like this?

Me eating Will:

Yep.  I’m butterflying sad to be leaving these chicks.  They rock my world from 7am to 6pm.  :(

And in memory of my awesome place of employment, I leave you with this flashback of what I “used” to do for a living:

Lisa Yeah for more books to come!

Courtney Starks Good for you! I'm sure it is kinda scary and it sucks to leave awesome coworkers, because there sure are some sucky ones out there. Hey, anything that leaves you more time to be a crime-fighting ninja is a good decision in my book.
