So my little man has started pre-k as of August 13th! I am amazed that time has went by so quickly that he is four years old already! I feel like we just brought him home from the hospital a few weeks ago.
My life has completely changed since August! I have gotten used to my new improving self as I improve my health through running. My cousin and I have been running 5k three times a week since June, but I took the month of August off because of major changes that has come into my life. My son started pre-k and I started a new job that is only 10 minutes from home.
I hated to leave my old employer because the majority of my co-workers I miss terribly but there are those in upper management that I couldn't get away from fast enough! My supervisor that I left, she was the best person in the world to work for and I miss her dearly. She always looked for the simplest ways to do things because others tried to make work so hard on us it seemed. Her motto was: "Keep it simple" if there is an easier way to do something and it is still correct then by all means do it that way. She has to be the most flexible person in the world.
I feel that God has had these plans for me for a long time. I gave my worries over to him about how we would be getting our son to and from school and how it would work out with my job. Two weeks before our son started pre-k, I approached my neighbor about coming to work for her bank. She informed me that I should come in to speak with the president. I did and the rest as they say is history.
I started my new job after working out my two week notice and my family and I have gotten used to this new chapter in our lives. It has been such a blessing to be able to take our son to school and pick him up. I have an extra two-three hours everyday to spend with my kids and work on my school work.
My neighbor and I walk every morning before work and it has been such a great thing to gain a girl-friend in the process of beginning my new job and working with her everyday. It is nice to have another mom to talk to about issues facing our growing kids.
