So as I sit here, preparing to go to sleep and put to bed another day, I have to acknowledge that tomorrow is the end of an era. Mayle closes. I wish it wasn't so--I regret the items I missed and the ones we'll never see. But I will be there by 6 to say farewell to Elise and Christina and maybe Sumer (if she's there). I'll stay in touch with the girls, but I wish they still had jobs in this crazy economy and that things could stay as they were, if only for another year or so. Other changes I would like (motherhood, that new job), but Mayle was a part of life, like Evan and the cats, that I wanted to stay just the way it is.
At least there will be a group of us girls there to see the store out in some form of style. See you there. I'll be there around 5 or 5.30, depending on how the grading goes.
Look! It's Nigel and Mimsey!!
