Confession Monday...

I GOT A JOB...If you remember this post, I had played WILW 'theme edition'.

Well, Caitlin got it right!! I'm moving to Tennessee to teacher 1st grade and I couldn't be more excited!!!

I was offered the job last Wednesday and with a little bit of 'last minute' thinking...I called back Thursday and accepted it. Now, not to say I'm not freaking out or nervous, because I AM, but I'm also ecstatic!

My own classroom...HERE I COME! 

One of the fellow teachers at the school I'm at now is pregnant and not coming back next year, so Saturday morning I helped her move the majority of her stuff out of her classroom. She was TOO  very, generous and gave me like 75% of her teaching stuff. It was so much stuff I had to rent a storage unit just to put everything in.

So, my first day is August 6th, approximately 2 months away. Now, in 2 months I need to:

-Find a place to live
-Set up my first (ever!) classroom
-Move and furnish an apartment
-Figure out Convince/beg if The Boy is coming with me
-If so, find him a job ASAP
-Say goodbye to my family and friends :(

Well, tomorrow is my last day of work and I'm sad to leave MJ. It was my 'first' school I taught in and worked at. I'll miss them, but I'm ready to embark on this new journey and start another chapter in my life.


  1. Ah what an exciting moment in your life! I can't wait to read all about your next chapter in Tennessee. My husband's family lives about 2 hours from Clarksville, but I think TN is all the same - and I love it. Yay so happy for you!!!

  2. Congrats on the new job!! How far of a move is it for you?
