As much as I hate change, it's completely inevitable in life. No matter how much we'd like to have things remain just as they are, it's not going to happen. This week has brought quite a bit of change to our lives.
First, I found out that Hannah's starting school next month. That means I've done my job too well. She just turned 5 and is already reading and doing addition, so it's time for her to go into a setting where she can shine. As hard as it is to not have her here every day, Meg's promised that we'll still be in her life, and I'm to have her when school's out. I don't think I could handle not seeing her again. Guess it really helps that Meg's my sister by choice and in heart. Love that woman - it's almost like we were separated at birth or something. Scary thought, huh?
I'm starting a new phase in my life as of tomorrow. It's going to be hard, but I absolutely know the end results will be worth all the frustration and discomfort. Thanks to one of my bestest friends for helping me get my head wrapped around it and start thinking in the positive instead of dealing with the "never's". You rock, girlie, and I may well be calling on you to vent. Hope you don't mind.
Also found out that something wonderful happened this morning. I'm not going to say more than that, because it's not my news to share, but I just want the parties involved to know how happy I am for them, and I love you guys!!
And amidst all that, something cool was going on at home this week. We did a little home improvement, and now the bulk of my books are in one place. We were able to add a little bit of storage to the kitchen, which was BADLY needed! I was able to sell some stuff and have more to list in the next few days. It feels liberating to shed the CHAOS and get back to life as it should be.
So that's about it. Gonna go find some trouble to get into now....
