I don't like change, and  there is a LOT of it coming down the line for me and my family.  My big kid just graduated from pre-K, and my baby is not a baby anymore and will be starting preschool soon.  I am so excited for both of them, they are so eager to try something new, and let go of the old.  I love to watch them as they learn new things and try new things.  I need to take a page out of their books, and just embrace life.

I quit my job last week, and as of right now only have 3 1/2 more days here.  I am facing so many emotions right now.  I have been miserable here for the last few months (years even)  so I am so excited to start something  new.  But I am also scared.  I have been at this job for nearly ten years, and I know what is expected, what to do, when to be here.  Those are all unknowns at this new place.  Plus, it is an internship, and there is no telling what I will be doing come the fall.

I am trying to pack up 10 years of my professional life, and it is difficult to tell what I might need in the future, and what the person who takes my place might need instead. It is amazing how much stuff you can accumulate in 10 years, and the sad thing is we moved 8 months ago, and I got rid of a LOT of it already!  I'm trying to slowly tackle the tangible items.  The files shouldn't be as bad, I'll just toss them on a disk (or 10, haha) and deal with them at home on my time.
