It wasn't because I didn't do the work. I was actually twice as productive. It wasn't because they didn't like me either. It was because there is a sentence in our policy that says, 'Telecommuting will not be a substitute for day care or elder care'. I fought it as hard as I could fight.
So that's that. Last Friday was my final day on the job I've had for 11 years. Poof, 11 years gone. February 24th was my official 'Last Day'. It was also the anniversary of my brother's death 11 years ago.
I have 11 more weeks of FMLA and then my benefits also go poof!
What did I spend my time doing this week? I ordered seeds. I guess I need to put some new roots down.
