My friends at work threw me a very nice going away party on Sunday and gave me an assortment of K-cups and a coffee gift basket. Allan got a nice card from his San Jose coworkers (my favorite inscription: "Keep those shelves stocked with Legos or I'm giving the kids your cell phone number!") and he is having a lunch with his local coworkers today. Alex is getting together with his neighborhood friends on Friday and his baby playgroup friends on Monday. And I'm going out with David's playgroup moms on Thursday. It's bittersweet to have so many examples of how great the being left behind are.
