Well, I FINALLY found a summer replacement job for the unfortunate Elderberry's incident...a nanny job in Savannah, Georgia! I'm excited at the prospect of living away from blacksburg for a change, as much as I love it here (especially in the summer), I really think a little change of scenery will do me good. I'm currently trying to organize and sort all my clothes and pack up a few little things at my apartment before I leave on sunday (so soon!), and I really can't believe how many clothes I have accumulated since I moved in here last august...it's unreal. I'm currently making two piles one to stay at my parents house and the other to take with me to Savannah. I even have a few hand me downs to give to my sister, which is generous of me since she usually just raids my closet without asking. But what are sisters for, anyway?
I've been spending my last few days in Blacksburg laying out by the pool in Maple Ridge with Sarah and Taylor and Heather gettin' our tans on and hanging out with Luke. I'll be sad to leave blacksburg behind but I'm excited at the prospect of beginning a new job and having a totally different summer experience! It could be just what I need.
I'm nannying for one of my Aunt's co-workers; she has two twins, 8 years old a boy and a girl. I'm excited to meet them on my first day this Monday! I'm already brainstorming all the fun things we can do during the days we will be spending together: so far I've added pool days, going to the beach and the park, walking my Aunt's two black labs, going to a Savannah Sand Nats baseball game and trips to the public library to our list. But Savannah is a beautiful city full of so many fun things to do, I know we will have something exciting to do every day!
I really can't wait to start working and actually have something interesting to blog about for a change- I hope you all enjoy the new name for this blog...it seemed much more appropriate.
