BLEH.

I lost the job with NASA because I couldn't conform to their immediate travel schedule.


That's ok. I know now I should be in town for some other important things coming up. The kids' first day of school, my son's birthday, the Dirty Girl race that Morri will be in.


I have other irons in the fire...

I know you do because they are brilliant. Their schedule was completely unrealistic for pretty much anyone with a shred of a life.

Isn't NASA firing people? O.o



It will work out for the best, chin up and all that. :)

Sorry dude- I wish you better luck- maybe it was just keeping you still for the better job to come along.

You are not getting out of a visit that easy! :p



One day at a time and everything has its reasons. *hugs*

You don't know me like these other folks seem to do, but I wanted to let you know and remind you of the famous words spoken by Brandon Lee. "Can't Rain all the Time."



Rather then rewriting what I just wrote in my journal lost night, I would like to direct your attention to my latest entry entitle Love, Darkness and Sailor Moon. I truly believe there are some things in there you might find useful.



Please know that so many people are praying, conducting rituals, ceremonies and all kinds of thing for people who are struggling in this hard time. Please remember, if nothing else, always Love, build strong friendships, keep the Faith, never lose hope and Dream.

How can offering support manifest itself in such a fucked up way?





 

Trying...

...working on negotiating a start date on this job while they work on answering my questions.


Being able to hold off starting until after Labor Day would definitely be a help right now.

I hope it all works out the way you need it to.





 

That's just the thing...

...the job will require me to be away from home a lot. That means not seeing my kids and Morri... no physical contact with any of them. That is painful compromise.


Of course it might not be a long term situation. Eventually, it might let me see MORE of them all, plus stabilize my income and have better benefits to boot.


But right now, I have two contracts that I am comfortably involved in that will provide the equivalent income as this one, without having to miss anyone - it just means I will probably work some longer hours and pay more for less benefits.


I'm torn.


But... if they answer my questions satisfactorily, I think I'm going to go for it.


*deep breath and hold it*

You have choices now, and that's wonderful. I don't have any worries that you'll make the wrong choices. Congratulations. You earned it.

It's a big thing. Some people find it worth it, if the income is sufficient enough to the point where they won't have to work again for a few years - or if the benefits will continue to prove useful.





In a way, missing family members makes everything sweeter when you do get to spend time with them. Every memory is precious - not that is may not be already. :P





 

Got it!

B, it's either feast or famine these days. I support you in whatever decision you make. And I have no doubt you'll make the right one. (of course, I did want to be able to tell everyone that I know an astronaut. however, don't let that sway you in anyway.)





 

Moving on..

...submitted my background check and waiting on the drug screening instructions.


Contingent offer in hand and waiting on approvals...


When it rains... it pours.


But I still have the challenge of getting customers to pay their damn bills in the meantime.
