My Last Monday

14 Nov

Today was my last Monday at WSAV.

It is so hard to believe I have been there for as long as I have.  I started 10 days after I graduated from West Virginia University and now, almost 6 and a half years – a husband – 2 kids – a dog and oh about 20 pounds later, I’m saying see ya.

I couldn’t be leaving at a better time really – our general manager has announced he’s leaving – our executive producer is moving on to much bigger and better things – and while there are a few people I will miss bunches, Ginger, Tim, Paul and Jordan don’t work there anymore.  I’m also just tired of tv news.

Despite all of that though – I’m scared about what’s next.  This is really the only job I’ve ever known and I’m worried I’m not going to be able to handle my new full time job as mommy.  I know it sounds silly – I mean people do it all the time – I just hope I’m built for it.  (And I hope they don’t devour me alive.)

I guess with a last Monday comes a first.  Next week will be my first Monday in my new position – I really hope I make it through the day without getting fired.

    I'm so excited for you and proud of you. I know it's scary leaving
    something that has become comfortable, but you're right – the time has
    come to try something new. I have a whole new respect for how difficult
    the job of full-time mommy can be, but I know you'll be great at it. I
    don't think you even know how to do anything less than your best. And
    at some point, I'm sure you'll work again – maybe in news, maybe
    outside of it – but you'll excel. You always do!

    We are going to be at such a loss without you. I will miss you terribly and got such a sick feeling when I read the title of this blog. You will be a fantastic full-time mom…I am jealous. Remember you already parent a whole bunch of viewers by leading them through elections, alerts, recalls, basically wiping their you know whats. Now you can do it for two people who truly mean the world to you. And I know they will remember this time with Mommy and cherish it forever. And when you just need to talk to an adult – I check my email on my blackberry non-stop.
