Last day blues.... But life goes on

Yesterday was my last day at Highland Manor. In some ways it was a relief, but instead of celebrating I was too sad to do anything. I'm really going to miss a lot of people at Highland Manor and I wish that I could have continued on for that reason. But I chose the right path, it's just hard not doubting myself.

Last night I went to visit the boys that I will be nannying. They are so super sweet. Brady, five-years-old, wanted to make sure that I would color with him. The first time we met he didn't even want to talk to me and this time he was asking me a ton of questions and wanted to show me all his birthday presents. I'm so excited to work with a family again. This is my ideal situation. I get to be creative and active. I'm really looking forward to my first day.

Otherwise life has been very crazy as usual. Nick had a lymph node explode on Monday and had to have it surgically drained. He's very lucky he didn't get a staph infection. So he's been off most of the week healing. He finally looks much better but he's still moving a little slow. I'm so glad that he decided to go to the doctor right away. I hate to think what might have happened if he would have gone the normal route and not gone to the doctor.

I have been so busy trying to get organized and all of that the last couple weeks. I still have a long way to go but there will always be something to do in my eyes. I haven't even taken time to read or really write. I do feel like if I get this stuff out of the way I will be in a much better spot to be able to write. GET RID OF THE CLUTTER!!!!!! That's what my brain keeps saying.

Speaking of that I better get back to working on the piles. I have all day to get it done, but I'd prefer to get it done and over with so I can rest this afternoon!

I'll be updating this blog a lot more now that I have a normal schedule and will actually be dedicating time to write. YAY! I love new chapters in life!

I'm UBER proud of you honey. You made the right choice for the long term, and while everyone who you worked with at Highland was lucky to have you, this new family is even luckier. It will be exciting to hear how these boys grow and such under your creative eye. YAY!
