Good luck on the new job, BK! I've moved on in the past, typically for more money or more opportunity. There is a feeling of loss for what you've spent the last part of your life on, but there's also an excitement for where you're going.

Just remember one thing... there are very, very few people in any company who are irreplacable. And many of those who think they can't be replaced... can. If there's *one* person that can't be replaced at a company, that's a lot. We're all valuable, and we add our own special part, but we're all replacable. So don't feel too bad about moving on to something newer and more exciting.
True - very true - but this is a small company - only 13 people in my office - and some reports are things that I do and if I'm not here, they don't get done. I've got a folder set up on the shared drive that has it all in it, but the people here aren't very computer literate...but that's not my prob, right?

Thanks, Bungleau.

BK

He didn't want to see me go, but we still talk, and now that I've been ill, I still send business his way, even some of my own. It's never easy to say goodby, but when it's for professional advancement, it's always a good thing, and they will probably understand, especially if they can't offer you a similar wage/position.
This is similar. I hope I can send them some of the business (my wife works here) and I don't wish them ill...but I am happy that I will be getting it out. They are very slow, and I tend to get in trouble when I'm not doing anything (like posting on an internet site in the middle of the day....wait a minute....)

Later,

BK

Hey BK! You know, moving on may bring you all sorts of nostaligic feelings right now about the soon to be former job, but when you get right down to it, you're doing what's right for you and your family.

Besides, when you think about it, Henry, you didn't know many people well at the current job when you started. You may come to feel equally good about the people at your new place AND you have the mobility options you mentioned at the new place. Starting something new is a little stressful, to be sure, but all in all, I think you'll find it stimulating, challenging and rewarding...ultimately a good thing for your state of mind, bank account and family. Best of luck, dear friend!

Merry Christmas and Congrats on the job!

PS: My husband says pretty much the same thing about 'being grown up and responsible'.
thanks, amber. I appreciate it. [img]smile.gif[/img]
