Adios Stewart Rehab!

End of the road! It was surreal walking out of work today. I remember the days work felt like a prisonand I had a life sentance. With my chains taken off I was hesitant to take the steps of freedom laid before me. Is it okay, is this right? Am I really free? I truly will miss the people I have worked with that has always been the gem along with many of my patients. I have great memories. I truly felt the love my co-workers have for me and their sincerity in their faces including a few tears when they said I would be missed. It is a really good feeling to know you have been a positive influence and been a positive part of others lives. But any second guessing about my decision was answered in a single glance outside- white swirling snow in yet another Ogden blizzard I was about to drive home in. It was as if the heavens were sending its witness- a confirmation to get out and don't look back!

A few pictures of most of my co-workers and the roommate celebratory dinner at Sawadee! Dinner was the best part of the whole day. I was over the goodbyes and ready to rejoice! And how can I not have fun with my girls?! It had been a long time since we all went out together and it was sooo good!

Tamika is going to kill me for this picture! I snapped it while she was talking...

Do I deserve this? Yes, yes I do!!! I feel like I just got away with something great and I don't care if I get caught.

Emily had fun with my camera- the gong at Sawadee

Apparently Emily needed a picture of our empty rice bowl. Things are frequently empty when we eat at Sawadee.
Looky, looky- it's all of us! Except Emily felt a need to have a tomato grin so after a little chastisement we tried again =).
All of us take 2! Anya Bybee, Emily Utt, Heather McOmber, Kristin Yee
And tomorrow I am off to Southern Utah for some spring time camping! Complete with Indian carvings and family. All this goodness makes me feel like singing! (Dancing is just a given...)
