Well, I survived the week. It’s been a doozy I tell you. Let me get all grown up on you for a minute.
Monday we started off with aforementioned surgery for Miles. Though it was quick and routine it was still my kid having surgery and it wasn’t fun. But well worth it. He already seems much happier and chattier and hopefully this is the first step in no more chronic ear infections and more progress on the talking front. Thanks for all your nice tweets and messages about it as well!
I continued to make Monday the worst day ever by telling my boss I am leaving my job. Basically this is something I never thought I’d do. I love my job, the company, the people and working for my boss. I feel like it’s something I am good at and enjoy. Another opportunity came along and it’s not one I was really searching for but it showed up nonetheless. It became an opportunity I cannot pass up. It’s going to be great both professionally and personally. Not only am I going to be doing a job I can do well and be challenged by but also Miles will make the move to my new employer’s on-site day care which I think is really going to benefit him.
Which brings me to the doozy of all doozies. After sobbing to my boss on Monday about my decision I had to sob to our nanny that come June Miles will attend daycare and we would no longer have her as our in home babysitter. This was the toughest of all. She has become a family member and has been taking care of Miles since he was only 7 weeks old. But being awesome and loving Miles so much she totally understands this decision and knows it will also be great for him.
Seriously, Monday was the worst day ever. I sort of felt like Toby here…
Though I’m still sad and heartbroken about leaving a job I love… I am optimistic about the future. It’s a lot of change in the next few months for myself and my little family but hopefully when I look back in 6, 9 or 12 months I realize it was the right decision.
My new employers seems to have nothing but good things said about it. It also looks like a really fun place to work. I sort of hope it’s like this…
I don’t like to mention my employers name (past, present or future) on my blog but email me if you are dying of curiosity. Or it wouldn’t be that hard to find out if you follow me on twitter.
So the next few weeks I’ll be keeping busy trying to make a smooth transition out from one place, taking a week off, and then into a new one! Be prepared for a few blog posts about OMG I’M SO NERVOUS and OMG I DON’T WANT TO BE THE NEW KID AGAIN.
This weekend should be excellent, my mom is coming to visit and bring me my favorite pizza from home! What’s on your weekend agenda?
