I'm so excited and I just can't hide it

As you guys know, I decided to close my home daycare, after 8 years.
 I started the daycare when I got married, and we decided it was best if I stay home so I could be there for my stepsons- who were 5 and 6 at the time.
 In that time I've watched 12 kids (not all at the same time!). Many of them started when they were babies, and I got to watch them grow up. One of my girls started when she was 3, and I still have her occasionally, and she's 11!

 It has been an awesome journey, filled with some crazy times, but also filled with so much love and fun times.
 Next week will be my very last week. It's going to be so hard to say goodbye.
The girls I have now, I've had for 3 years, since they were newborn babies. I've practically raised them, been a second mom to them. It will definitely break my heart.


 But, the good news is...I was offered a job! I was seriously looking for a job for a couple weeks, went on one interview, and am now hired!
 I realize how blessed I am, I know people who have spent AGES looking for a job.
I know I will love this job, it's (sort of) in the banking industry, which I've done in my past, and loved.
And I even get to carry a gun. Woot woot!
I'll be starting in a couple weeks!

Yes, I'm this excited

Injury Update:
I still have pain (though it hasn't been as severe) in my fibula. Last night I went for a little run, I just couldn't stop myself! I wanted to do 5, but had to stop early, trying to at least be a little bit smart about it!
 I cannot tell you how good it felt to run again. Painful, but good!
My Dr appt. is in one week, I can't wait!

Do you love or hate change? Or somewhere in the middle?
 I actually like change. I get bored easily, so I see change as an adventure!
