Something other than moving to report!

Something other than moving to report!

Today I got a break from the usual packing, sorting and inventorying. I stopped by my old high school group’s clinic and helped out a bit, got to exercise and spend some time doing fun stuff this afternoon and I got a break from the daily grind of moving preparation so that was nice.

N had the official talk with his work yesterday! It is public now, we are leaving Flagstaff and he is not continuing employment with his current company. His contract is up August 26th 2008, that has lifted a huge weight from his shoulders. He will have less responsibilities as opposed to doing the work of 3 people. He’ll get paid for any overtime hours he works unlike his current employer who expects 10 hour days 5 days a week and any on call time they see fit without extra compensation. Plus, the living will be easier financially! I am happy that he will get to move on to bigger and better things, it is about time!

The best part of giving "official notice" was that they didn’t see it coming! His boss honestly thought he wouldn’t (or couldn’t) get anything better. Proving them wrong was nice and it was also a morale booster for him. I am not sure what they are going to do without him, since he does everything but it is time to move on and let all this go.

I hope to get more packing and sorting done this evening, I think I may procrastinate though cause I am tired and lazy! The car ( our Isuzu Amigo) died on me on the way to the guard clinic this morning so we need to figure out the idle problem tonight and basically I just want to relax and be lazy!

I’ll feel better when I have more physical proof of all the progress that has been made, you know like having the new RV in the driveway or having piles and piles of boxes that are sorted and ready to move… Until I have something to show for all the work we have been doing I’ll feel like I am not doing enough. That is the fun of moving right?

It’s all good though! Moving is hard work and costs lot of money but the end result is so promising and exciting that I don’t even care. Woho, we’re moving to Evansville, Indiana!

  • I think alot of employers tend to think that you can’t possibly do any better than what they have to offer. N must have been so excited to say “see ya!”. Hope you were able to get some exercise in at the school:) And, this is one more thing that you can cross off the “to do list”.

  • I love stories where underpaid, under appreciated employees get to tell their employers they will no longer work there. Congratulations to N!
