Texas...Here I come!

Well, the decision has been made...I'm moving to Texas. I accepted a job in Anna, Texas. I'll be teaching 5th grade language arts and social studies. I'm thrilled...I couldn't be happier about teaching language arts for a big part of the day!! Now I have to make some more decisions and do some major packing, and have a garage sale. The fact that I am over 1000 miles away makes it a bit difficult! Barry has been checking into soooo many things in Texas and we have decided on a moving company. For just a couple hundred dollars more we can have someone else do all the heavy lifting and carrying things down the stairs from my apartment. Was there really even anything to consider there?? The movers are coming July 27th & 28th. I have SOOOO much to do. I want to have a garage sale sometime before I pack everything up. Just thinking about it gives me a headache!

I haven't settled on a date when I will actually leave. I have to be here for the birth of my nephew! My sister is due July 26th, but her doctor told her last week they will most likely do a c-section. Cooper is breech and is already too big to turn. I guess when your husband was over 12 lbs the chances of you having a big baby are pretty good too. With all of her past health problems, I think it is really the best choice. After Cooper is born, I'll have a bit of time here before I head off to Texas. I begin school on the 13th so I want to get there and have a bit of time to get settled before I have to get back into the swing of things with work. I'm sure it's going to be a busy and crazy time, but I'm also sure it will be exciting! As sad as I am to leave my family and friends here in Michigan, I am happy too. A new chapter in my life is about to start!
