You know that feeling you get when you finish a LONG book, even a good one. You are glad that it is done with but in a way sad for that very same reason.
That is the way I have been feeling this last week.
You see, on Thursday of last week I put in my two-weeks notice at Walmart.
This is HUGE for me. I had been with the company for seven and a half years! That is almost a third of my LIFE. Almost all of my adult working life.
I am still really sad to be leaving the wonderful people I worked with. I know that I will be back visiting often! (lets face it, in a town this small, you have to shop walmart! lol) But I am so happy to be able to focus a bit more on the things I am doing to finish my degree. My internship is starting to take more time, as are my classes.
Leaving Walmart also got me really seriously thinking about the move that we are about to embark on. I know that most of you know, but some don't. We are relocating as soon as I am finished with school. Probably at the latest by mid-June.
This will be the first time I have ever lived away from my mom. Needless to say, this has been a tough thing to explain to my family. Mostly they understand, but they are sad. They have been with me the entire time my kids have been alive and suddenly we will be 7-8 hours (by car) away. It is going to be an adjustment.
Anyway, that isn't what this post was intended to be about. This was supposed to be about the ending of my chapter with Walmart. I know that as one chapter ends in our lives, another begins, I am just anxious to see what the next chapter will bring for me.
