It is a quiet Saturday here. It's been a little rainy and overcast, so it was a good day to do pretty much nothing. I did go grocery shopping at Super Wal-Mart this morning where I always save so much money! I came home and made BLT's for lunch, then took a nap! :)
We are in one of those times right now when you can feel lots of changes coming on. Sometimes life just seems to flow along with the "same old, same old" for a long time, then all of a sudden it's like the wind changes direction and you start getting tossed around a little bit.
One of the changes we have coming soon is Mark will be leaving in about 3 weeks. He couldn't be more excited about it! I know he is going to LOVE college. But it will be different around here...one less chair at the dinner table, WAY less laundry, a bedroom just sitting there empty. I will miss his energy and his sense of humor. He is always so upbeat and fun! I will be sad when he's gone!
Today, Ashley is in Columbia moving out of the apartment she shared with her two best friends last year. She doesn't want to, but she was elected president of Chi-O, so she has to live in the sorority house this year. She was really sad because she had so much fun living with Robin and Rachel. Now it won't be the same!
I know when she's standing in that apartment after everything has been moved out, she is going to be so sad just remembering all the fun they had together. I hate closing the door for the last time and walking away from a place you loved!
I also got a call from my principal a few days ago. She has decided to move me to second grade! I have taught second grade before and I absolutely love it. It's probably my favorite grade to teach! But for the past two years, I have been teaching kindergarten. I had THE BEST team and we all got along so well and had the best time together. Plus I loved my assistant, Toni! We just had a chemistry together that worked. Not to mention, one of my best friends and neighbor, Candy, was right across the hall from me! My room was so big and open with big bright windows and it's own bathroom.
Now I'm going to be in a trailer! I know I will love it, but I will be sad to say goodbye to kindergarten!
Steve has had a lot of craziness going on at his office this week too. Lots of things are up in the air right now for him and he's not sure what will happen next. That's been on his mind alot this week.
And Laura and Lindy are about to start their very first jobs (other than babysitting). Laura has an interview this week at Chick-fil-A
and Lindy thinks she is getting a job at a little boutique for girls called Justice.
It is kind of like a Limited, Too. I think they will have fun working and making their own money!
So many changes ahead! I don't know about you, but I'm not a huge fan of change. :) I like things to stay the same. But I know that the only thing that never changes is change, right? You just have to adjust! And I'm thinking the next month or two is going to involve lots of adjustments for all of us!
