Today has been filled with so many different emotions. I have been happy, sad, nervous and excited. This is all due to a job change. Today, was my last day working for WorldVitalRecords / FamilyLink. I've been employed there since Aug 2008. That just seems like eons ago, but then again just yesterday.
At the recent NGS conference I happened to mention to Bruce Buzbee, the Roots Magician of RootsMagic, that I would love to work for him. He said he would love to have me work for him. In fact he was actually looking for someone. A few emails later and I was signed up. I gave my two week notice at FamilyLink and today was my last day.
My wonderful supervisors and co-workers gave me a little going away party. That was so touching. I didn't know what to say. I will miss them. You always mean to stay in touch but life happens. I sure hope I don't loose contact with them. I am a willing volunteer for beta-testing if they need me, so I really hope they take me up on the offer.
Tomorrow, I will sit down with Bruce and get some training on my new job. I will be doing tech support by phone and email. The best, most terrific thing, is I can do this all from home. That also means no more walking over to ask someone a question. Though there is always chat. Funny thing is you can be sitting in the same room as someone just a couple cubicles away and actually chat more over IM than you do in person. Chatting won't be that strange of a work tool for me which is good.
My emotions like I said have been full range. I will miss the people I leave. I am excited to work with another set of great people. I just have to say I am so blessed. I live in the right place for someone into genealogy. Utah Valley is the headquarters to a lot of great genealogy companies and I can say I work/worked for two of them.
