Changes a brewin

Change. verb (used with object)
to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone: to change one's name; to change one's opinion; to change the course of history.
to transform or convert (usually followed by into ): The witch changed the prince into a toad.
to substitute another or others for; exchange for something else, usually of the same kind: She changed her shoes when she got home from the office.
to give and take reciprocally; interchange: to change places with someone.
to transfer from one (conveyance) to another: You'll have to change planes in Chicago.
Change for me is usually a bit scary. Not extremely, but it just makes me hesitant. I guess its more the fear of the unknown. even when its for the better.
Last Wednesday David called me from work very excited, shooting out a bunch of sentences all at once as i was trying to wake up. I didn't know WHAT he was trying to say here. You know how it is when you were in a dead sleep, it take you a few seconds to come to, and process...
Turns out, The store that David works at had my position open up. Now, I know Im notorious for complaining about my job, my store, the lazy people etc... but I really love the store i work at. (its a love hate thing i guess you could say). I have been there since it opened. My department has been "mine" from the start. no one to mess it up. The thing with my store is, its a 30 minute drive at 3:30 am with no traffic, and 45 min. in the afternoon with buses and slow drivers. (dont get me started on the slow drivers!!)
It makes since for me to go to Davids store with gas being sky high and no real end in sight, I spend on average $200 a month just to get there.
After much thought, weighing the pros and cons, Davids store won out. So, I got to work, broke the news to my bosses (they were not too happy) and posted. Then the waiting game began. My biggest hurdle was weather or not they wanted David and I at the same store. Turns out they could care less. I got the job. YAY! but i am truly sad. I will miss my Davidson location. Im nervous about starting somewhere new. maybe it sounds silly, its just a grocery store. Im a creature of routine. I have had the same steady routine for 5 years.
But, its time to mix it up a bit! no more getting up at 2:30 am. it will take me no more than 10 minutes to get to work. THAT I AM excited about! I will also have SUNDAYS off! I have NEVER had Sundays off for a regular schedule. EVER! its exciting.
So, Cheers to change...
