Final night in the restaurant industry

Tonight was my last night working at the Tractor Room, and ultimately my last night in the restaurant industry. It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirteen years since I first started bussing tables at El Gaucho in Seattle. Johnny, the owner of the Tractor Room, was so gracious in seeing me go. He gave me a nice bottle of champagne for Jessica and I to enjoy once Ava is born, and even ordered pizza for everyone after we got through the rush. It was a fun final night, and coincidentally, turned out to be Joe Paterno’s final day as the head coach of Penn State University. What a mess that whole situation has turned into! Anyway, I feel very fortunate to have had the career I’ve had, but am beyond excited about the new chapter in our lives. I can’t believe Jessica is due in just over three weeks!
