Well, today was another step towards living our dream.
I turned in my resignation notice, final date of Sept. 30. It still doesn't seem real. I felt like I was turning in a vacation request.
I have been employed here since 1975. I had started as a pourer in the foundry, worked up to leadman, then a supervisor, back to a leadman. The last two years as a maintenance clerk.
And all but 3 years on 3rd. shift. It will be a change not heading off into the night. It has been a pretty good company. We make a variety of products, which has kept us working most all of the time.
But change is a happening. The company has been purchasing some smaller companies and getting big. There has also been a lot of change in upper management. So I think its a good time to get out.
Wendy will be done with her job on 8/7/12. She has only been working there a short time and does not have any vacation time. So as we plan to do a 2 week vacation to N. & S. Dakota, we thought it best if she just hung it up. Her recent job was only 20 hours a week part time.
She will be able to start making our work camper resume and begin to look for a good job next spring/summer.
Our youngest daughter Colleen and family just returned from a vacation in Upper Michigan. We have done a few vacations there and really love it. I would recommend a trip there to anyone who can.
