That is correct! I, Heidi, had my last day of work, on Halloween actually. It was funny too because our systems were being updated, so we really didn't do much but tell people they could call back on another day, etc. Some of my coworkers came by my desk, when they found out I was leaving. Lori was one of them, she is a very generous lady who loves to quilt. When Flavio and I got married, she gave us a gift of a big plastic tote with food inside. When she found out we are having a baby, she made baby blankets, and since she didn't know if we were having a girl or boy she had both, and one coworker had a boy I believe, so we got the one for the girl since we're having a girl!
Lois, she is another who came by my desk. She recently retired, and stopped by to offer me some of her Wassail that she makes this time of year. :) Joe also came by, he is one of the Team leads. He recently had some health issues and thankfully recovered. Damaris, Elena and Grace gave me hugs, and my Team lead handed me a card, that many coworkers had signed. Some coworkers like Heidi, (same name as me :) ) chatted with me on the computer, said she'd miss me. As I left work for the last time that day, I was leaving the building realizing that everywhere I was going was going to be the last time, the last time I got in the elevator, the last time I saw my desk, the last time etc. And then I started to just get a bit emotional, but was fine and left the building, and headed to the car to go get my husband from work. It was a hard job, at times I was very bored, at times I got too used to what I was doing and lost that "customer service attitude".
At times I was giving excellent customer service, I remember when I first started, I got a few compliments from customers I guess for how I spoke, or they said I had a nice voice or something. Well this was the longest time I had been at any job, and I've had quite a few! Although there were times I hated it, there were times I didn't hate it :) I met a lot of people there which is cool.
I also learned a good lesson for life, that it is important that we be obedient and always give our best, something that I need to work on, and will probably work on for a long time, but we can do it!

So next up, Halloween Shots! That's right!! Flu and Pertussis! My dear husband accepted my invitation to get those shots to prepare for our baby girl. The Whooping Cough is very contagious and can be deadly for infants, and the flu, well most of us know that the Flu is also not good and can be very harmful. So we went to a nearby store pharmacy to get the shots for Flavio. I had already had the Flu shot, and will get the Pertussis shot later on most likely. When we got to the pharmacy, they said we needed to stay 30 minutes after for observation, but by that time they would be closed, so thankfully (and  I love when people provide solutions and other alternatives) they referred us to another pharmacy that was open later. So Halloween night we went to the other pharmacy where a Bavarian beer maid gave Flavio his shots. She was a lady dressed up as the maid of course. And there was no beer involved. Haha! She said the Pertussis hurts more, after, than the Flu :( great...something for me to look forward to.

This morning I looked out the window and things seemed pretty white. I can see the sky and some tree branches, and yes things were white...then Flavio said, it was snowing! Nooooo! I do not want snow this early!! I enjoy the sunshine and I don't like when this part of UT gets all dreary looking. Thankfully it stopped snowing and the sunshine came out.

Off we went to Stake Conference today.  A new Presidency was called. I enjoyed the talks by the Elders who are Seventies.

Tonight we got a visit also from our neighbors, and it looks like both Flavio and I are a part of Scouts now! :)

Here's to a Wonderful Week ahead!!

Something REALLY BIG AND IMPORTANT is happening this week, so STAY TUNED!!
