Can anyone explain this to me?

So here is the deal, 18 months ago I gave notice at my work to leave this December. I have been a part-time Administrative Assistant at a Real Estate firm for the past 7 years - I started there full-time 12 years ago. I have my real estate license and now that my kids are older and my husband will be graduating this December, I was ready to do the Real Estate Agent thing. I gave plenty of notice so that they would be able to find someone who would be willing to work weekends and plenty of time to train them.

We found someone, they are almost fully trained. She up and quit and now being the dedicated worker I am I will stay until they find someone else. I am planning to stay with the same Real Estate firm as an agent and I can't very well upset the flow and maintain a good working relationship can I? What happens to me know it took a full year to get her all ready to go and now I have to start all over again.

The kicker - no one knows (at least it hasn't been announced), she wrote it up on her blog (which obviously I read) but no one at the office has been made aware of the fact that she quit. I don't have anyone to whine to except my husband and he's sick of listening to me (aren't all husbands?).

Any suggestions? Anyone looking for a part-time gig?
