To move or not to move...

As some of you know my bosses have asked me to move with them to Florida for the winter. And while that idea is immensely appealing... there is a catch. If I go I'd have to share a room with "M" (the 15 year old that I nanny/tutor/drive around). And while overall she's a good kid (if slightly spoiled), she is still a teenager. And I highly value my privacy.

We talked about options today... she really, really, really wants me to come with them for the 5 months they will be there... some of the options we came up with included putting up some sort of dividing wall, me coming after christmas, and me flying back and forth a couple times around her school schedule. All which could potentially work.

So I am asking for you opinion.. Go or stay? Share a room or fly back and forth?

Please keep in mind that until I get to talk to the Parents, this is strictly a theoretical discussion.

Thanks for your input!

I know...

OK so its been forever since I've posted... I guess I felt like I ran out of things to write. I mentioned that to someone the other day and they were like "Are you kidding?!?! You're a walking story!!" I guess that's a compliment. Right?

There is always so much floating around in head. Trying to pinpoint something can be next to impossible at times. Lately I have just been thinking about my life. The things that have happened... The things that are happening... and the things that I want to happen. And the people that have been/are a part of my story.

Sometimes its hard for me to believe that this is me life. I just turned 27... ya I know... I'm getting old (LOL). And this is definitely not where I thought I would be. But all things considered, I'm not doing to badly. Are there things in my life that I wish I could change? Abso-friggin-lutely!! And there are other things (life lessons) that you couldn't pay me to undo.

Things I've learned...
I'm stronger than I ever thought I was.
The "stuff" (aka crap) I've gone through can actually help other people if I let it.
Letting fear dictate my life means that I miss out on the most important things.
People, not things, are what matter in life!

I'm sure there are about a billion things that I could add to that list. But those are the things that are at the top of my list right now.

Well its time for me to head to bed... so I guess that's enough for now. I promise to write more soon :)
