Today is my last day at work as a research assistant – A bittersweet experience, as there are aspects of this job that I love and aspects I can’t wait to break away from. I’ve learned a lot over the past 2 years (most of which has nothing to do with science, oddly enough) and have met some awesome people (like Jess!).
Life has also decided to jab another stick in our spokes (literally) as Jim essentially broke his arm earlier this week while mountain biking. I’ve been a mess for the past couple days due to job/health insurance/packing/moving stress – But last night I finally realized that I need to stop being a control freak and a selfish bitch (because neither helps the situation much) and just take a step back and see what I can do to make things go as smoothly as possible for everyone.
I’m also learning that (as much as I wish I was) I am not Wonder Woman. Despite by best efforts to do everything on my own (I hate asking for help of any kind) – My parents have really saved the day and provided a much-needed shoulder to lean on. Thank you.
On a happier note! We are heading down to my Mom’s house in Rehoboth Beach for the weekend and I’m definitely looking forward to a couple days of sun, sleep and relaxation before the craziness picks up again …
Thanks for all of your positive comments and support – They truly mean a lot!
