Today, Friday, the last day of the week, is a day of endings.

I spent two hours in a dentist's chair this morning, bringing to an end my 12 months of Invisalign treatment. The last thing done was to yet again fill my mouth with goo and wait three minutes for it to harden into a mold; a week from now, I'll pick up my permanent retainer.

Then I returned to the office, where in the afternoon I closed out my last day at NetLojix, leaving one month short of my ten year anniversary there. Everybody was very sorry to see me leave. I'll certainly be taking many memories from Silicon Beach Communications -- AvTel Communications -- NetLojix Communications with me as I start the next phase of my professional life. (And after years of walking, I'll be driving to work again. Yuck.)
