I’m employed. Starting Monday and I think it’s going to be an awesome fit. This is exactly what I needed, what my family needed. What we needed so we don’t have to move or pack. OR MOVE.
It was a terrible couple of days but no worse than THIS TIME 2 YEARS AGO! (What the hell is with my family that we need tests every 2 years?) 2 years ago the company 1/2 my family worked for was sold and we were given 5 days to pack our house and get across the country (Ohio to California) and start work again. I cried. I think we all cried. I still miss my house and my huge back yard and snow.
2 years before that the partners at the company we all (my family) worked for fought and we almost went under as they ripped each other apart.
I swore I’d never work with family again (not because I can’t or they drive me nuts because I LOVE working with family) but it’s so scary when you fail. When you fail everyone fails. It hurts too damn much.
So here I am on the other side of my 2 year trial. My husband will be starting his in November along with my FIL and I know it will be ok. It’s always ok because that is the only option.
Thank you all for dealing with my week of depressing posts. I’m normally a very optimistic (somewhat sickeningly so) person but my heart hurt pretty bad because my family was suffering. Leave it to me though to fix that kind of suffering in a week. I should have been in charge of turning the economy around. I probably could have finagled it in 4 weeks. 🙂 I’m THAT kind of problem solver.
Ok, enough of my babble. I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments though I didn’t reply. I wanted to thank my MIL for being my second mom, my FIL for being made of magic, Mette & Tom, Jim & Carol who were ok with the prospect of us living in Yurts on their property, Shawna & Rebecca who let me cry on the phone and make no sense, my knittin’ kittens @ Anacapa Fine Yarns who surrounded me in a cushion of happy thoughts, my spinsters who all told me how they had gotten through it and for listening to me talk. Thank you all. I’ve never realized how blessed I am until the world starts to crumble.
