I’ve been anxiously awaiting to be able to write a post about this, and the time has finally arrived!
I am moving out and I found a nanny job!!!! I will finish working as Secretary on July 27th, and will leave for my new home that afternoon. It still seems completely unreal to me. “Is this real life”?-(David after the dentist) I will be living with six other gals who all love God! We each get our own room, and my parent’s have already moved down the majority of my furniture. I can’t even begin to imagine how wonderful it will be to only live less than ten minutes away from Matt. We’ve been dealing with distance since our relationship began, so it will be nice that I won’t have to actually plan times when I can visit him…I can just drive over!
I am so thrilled to nanny for such a wonderful, Christian family. God has truly opened doors of opportunity for me that I hadn’t even known existed just a few short months ago. I knew that if this were to all work out, that I would have to totally let go and let God guide my footsteps. I experienced anxiety, peace, hopefulness, but most of all patience during the waiting period. I am incredibly thankful for what He has allowed to happen. Now that the puzzle pieces have aligned and fit together for the next chapter of my life, I can joyfully move forward!
The pressures of properly budgeting and accepting all responsibilities of living on my own are certainly starting to settle in my bones, but I’m up for the challenge. I guess you could say I’m putting my big girl pants on. I’m so blessed to have been taught how to save money, because I wouldn’t be able to move out had I not been extra careful with my finances. I’m looking forward to grocery shopping, doing all of my laundry, making meals, working full-time, and yes, even mowing the lawn at our house. I’ve been spoiled living with my family because every one of those responsibilities were always taken care of.
I have decided that for the time being, I am going to stay with my current rheumatologist even though I am moving farther away. I literally just transferred and had my first appointment with him in April, so I’d rather not have to go through the whole transferring of records and x-ray process all over again. I am going to have to find a new pharmacy to pick up my monthly prescriptions, but I’m pretty sure I’m already gonna go ahead with Kroger since it’s super close to my new home. There is just so much floating around in my mind, so many details that I need to figure out once I move in.
Until next time, be careful what you wish for cause you just might get it 😉
