Career Change

So, it's official. As of January 3, 2007 this will be my new boss and the little angel in her arms will be my "charge"!

Yep thats right, I am moving to Blue Stem Ranch to be the nanny/housekeeper for my best friend and her family. A small part of me is super nervous simply because its a BIG change. But a much bigger part of me is soooooooooooooo ready for the change! Every time I go out there to visit I feel relaxed and I can BREATHE. Granted, I'm usually visiting but not always. You can ask them, they put me to work! I earn my keep most of the time :-). There are a few downsides, such as spotty cell phone reception and no possibility of high speed internet. But I already have some solutions for those problems (because the withdrawl symptoms would be UGLY). The best part is that I will be able to work in sweats/pj's and won't have to wake up early enough to shower, dry my hair and put on makeup. Granted, I can every once in a while just to feel nice..... but I doubt I will. Rolling out of bed, making some coffee,and then walking a few feet to work will be fabulous. And I am really thinking that since I'll actually be doing physical labor that requires me to move around a lot, I'll lose weight and get in shape again! No more sitting on my butt at a desk all day!

Its very bittersweet though. I will be leaving a whole crew of awesome friends and truly, an awesome job behind. I mean, yes I no longer enjoy the city life or the corporate work place. But I really do have a great job and great benefits/perks. And I've made some fantastic friends in the 6 years I've lived here. I will come visit, I have friends with spare beds thankfully! And there is the beauty of cell phones, internet and of course MYSPACE!!!

The big question is how my cats will react to such a big move. Ty is already expressing his opinion about the boxes
