Today is a sad sad day for me. If you know me, you know I hate change and right now I’m smack dab in the middle of it. Yesterday was my last day at Hedrick Elementary, and I’m proud to say that I didn’t cry… In front of the kids. Even though I was only there for a semester, they really touched my heart, helped me grow as a teacher and taught me so much about needing to be patient, kind and forgiving no matter what. I am really going to miss them!
I have been working hard for the past day and night packing up my stuff, getting ready to move out of my house. I’ve spent the past two years here living with my best friend, and saying good bye- closing this chapter in my life- is going to be so hard. I have loved being able to have my own room, cook my own food and have Caley just a room away, ready to talk, laugh and go on crazy adventures with. It will be an adjustment when I move home this summer!
I think one of my least favorite parts about moving is the packing. I hate thinking I just finished one area to turn around and realize there is still more to pack… Now I remember why I needed a stinkin’ U-Haul when I first moved in! I think it may take me about three trips to get most of my stuff moved out. I don’t know when or how I accumulated this much junk, but it’s ridiculous. I’ve already thrown out three HUGE trash bags of stuff. I feel like a pack rat.
I just want to send out a HUGE shout out to my wonderful boyfriend. Last night, when I was about to give up on packing because I was so overwhelmed with all I had to do, I heard someone at my bedroom door and there was Isaac. He drove all the way here to surprise me and help me out anyway I needed. I know I would never have been able to get as much done if he hadn’t come! We ended up packing up the entire kitchen last night. He’s a beast and made packing a lot more fun! We danced around the kitchen a few times, laughed a lot and enjoyed the time together. I sure am going to miss him when I leave for Chile
How pathetic does my room look now?!
I’ll be so happy when I get everything moved out, unpacked/stored and I don’t have to worry about it anymore! My goal is to get most of it done before I leave for CHILE in SIX DAYS. I can’t wait!!
Here’s to closing an old chapter and opening a new one.
