Things have been pretty good, not great but good.
Life in Maine, while beautiful, can be difficult. It has been for the past few months financially so I have been looking for work.
It is about to get very stressful for us and I am a bit concerned.
See when we moved to our current home, the week we were moving actually, my husbands company downsized their staff and, well you guessed it, he was one of the many they let go.
Six months being unemployed and he found a job right in the same little town we live. It was a significant decrease in pay but he was hopeful he could make positive changes for the company...help make their tasks more efficient...then ask for a raise, putting his salery where it should be for the job he was doing.
He made awesome changes in how things run, very efficient. He brought their business just about up to date in the technological stream of things, in fact he did his job so well they were able to eleminate his position!
This happened yesterday and my head is still reeling. I just keep trying to wrap my head around it. I sort of see it from one point, but seriously!? You do a fantastic job and get repaid by losing your job?! What is the message here?!
I am trying to see the positive, thus writing out my feelings.
They do want to contract him to build their website, but one of the bosses just has no clue the going rate to build an eccommerce site and I am concerned when hubs goes in to talk on Friday the man will just be an unreasonable idiot.
They also want to use him...contract him...for their tech support. Ok great but that will be a little here, a little there, nothing steady at all.
Did I memtion we live in Maine? Where we are fast approaching winter...where it will be REALLY COLD!
So you see my concern?
Now let us add into this mix we are having van issues. Tried to get a small loan a few weeks ago and got turned down. On one hand It is good because we might not be able to make the payments now, but on the other hand we still are having issues with the van.
Perfect catch 22.
As I said earlier, I am trying really hard to see positive...to be positive, but I am having a really hard time with it...with all of this.
Hubs is very talented in all things technical and can and has done tech support via phone and tunneling into computers via remote desktop, so if you know of anything or anyone needing help, please, please, please get in touch with me.
Yes I am working through this.
Yes we WILL get through this.
In with the good...out with the bad.
One day at a time.
One moment at a time.
I hope your day is an amazing one, I, well, I will be working on mine.
Until next time...
