Ever since June, I've been a nanny to six kids: Harrison, Porter, Ethan, Sara, Nolan, & Jonas.. But, yesterday was my last day. My decision to quit was definitely bittersweet & I will miss those kids making me laugh every day! However, I do still feel strongly that this is the best decision for my life right now & am perfectly content with how things have worked out. The little boys LOVE going to lunch at Ikea & ask every day if I'll take them there, but we only do it every once in a while.. I thought yesterday was as good a day as any! & later on in the day, pizza for dinner, & spending time with those kids I love so much! Now onto all the packing & moving out of my apartment. Craziness. Ahh, life. :)
Alright, so I've just about had it with Mother Nature. Yesterday was dry & totally nice outside, temperature-wise.. Then, I wake up to this?! Does not look like spring fever to me! If I didn't have a midterm to take, I would have stayed in bed all day & watched movies in my pajamas or something, but ya know.. School makes things difficult! Basically, school forced me to get out & go! (& yet somehow, I'm back in bed typing this right now..) & I guess even though I'm completely ready for warm weather, & I don't like that my toes are freezing (or, little fun fact: I have a tiny spot on my right foot that turns purple when I'm cold.. & guess what? It's definitely purple). But, I do have to admit.. The snow is absolutely beautiful.
Lately my life has been all about change. Actually, I guess that's not just "lately," I guess that's a lot about what life is about anyway, right? There have just been big changes lately, I s'pose. I think a lot of people fear change because it's all new & unknown & nobody really ever knows what to expect. I guess I'm feeling a lot of that right now.. I'm not really sure how it's going to work out, at all, but I do have complete faith that it will. & honestly, even though things are a little nerve-wracking right now, I'm excited for change. My life is good, & even with all its challenges, it is always, always good.. But, change brings growth & learning & I feel like it will be such a good thing. Change does not have to be bad, at all. I kind of hate that we see change as being bad so often, because really it's just another opportunity to learn & move & grow. It's definitely going to be hard.. I've gotten comfortable with the live I've been living & I've been perfectly happy with that, but I'm excited for a fresh, new start. So, here's to change, & here's to new beginnings.
