I will catch up on all the other stuff I have floating around in my blogger brain next week, after we move and have unpacked our alarm clocks and can find at least one of the three cats.  But today is my last day at dLife, so The Friday Six is in honor of this work place I’m leaving.

1.  I will miss having a six minute commute.  With the traffic on 95 (in any direction) being a nightmare, I’ve been spoiled for the last three and a half years with a six minute, door-to-door commute.  And I will sort of miss the weird things I’ve seen on that short ride.  

2.  I will miss the diner downstairs, complete with sassy, ball-busting waitress, delicious iced coffees that cooled me off for three summers, and piping hot coffees worth trekking through the snowdrifts outside the Westport train station for.

3.  I will miss the Chili Cook-Off, the JDRF Walk team, the Halloween contest, the Jim Turner visits, the Ceiling Cat, and the visiting baby chicks.

4.  I will miss working for a place where testing my blood sugar during a meeting never caused anyone to raise an eyebrow, because they all know what’s what.

5.  I will miss my little cube, with my Larry Bird bobble-head, my shiny iMac (oh how I will miss the iMac), and having my fellow editors just a mutter away.

6.  Which brings me to what I’ll miss most.  I will miss my editorial team.  I work with some wonderful people here at dLife, but the dLife editorial team is comprised of the kind of people you can only hope to meet in your lifetime.  I will miss their laughter, their tolerance for my bad jokes, their creativity, and all of their tireless support.  They’ve been with me since I came in here as “Kerri Morrone,” and am now leaving as “Kerri Sparling.”  But I will not miss their friendship, because I’m taking that with me.  🙂  They are the absolute best team ever, and will never be duplicated.  

dLife, you’ve been a good home for three and a half years.  And I bid it a very fond farewell.  

Hey!!! Rest Of My Life?  I’m coming!!!!
