Last Thursday we piled into the conference room for our monthly employee wellness lunch! We all had a fantastic time relaxing, chatting, eating delicious Chinese take-out and watching an episode of Firefly. Since I’m the newbie, I missed the first episode and had no idea what was going on—so I spent the beginning of the show with my face pretty deep in my egg foo young. But by the end, I basically knew what was going on and definitely look forward to episode three.
The delightful Cassie (a.k.a. the woman whose shoes I’m trying to fill) joined us as well! It was great to catch up with her and she seems to be thriving in her new job.
Our tasty and entertaining hour ended on a bittersweet note, however, as it was Rachel’s last day with us. We are so grateful for all she’s done here at ACET and wish her only the best as she takes on Washington, D.C.!
I guess our lunch seemed to revolve a little around new beginnings—me here at ACET, Cassie at West Suburban Teen Clinic and Rachel in our nation’s capitol. Well, new beginnings and sci-fi.
