Anyone else hearing the Theme to Jaws in their head? C'mon....you know you are.
I am a planner. I like to know what we are doing, and how we are going to get there. Fly by the seat of my pants.....that is not me. The land of the Unknown....uber scary and not very comfortable. As my good friend, C, said last night....it is just an extended Rental Unit.....we aren't buying a time share there. In a few weeks, we will know.
Ah....what will we know???
Just 8 days ago I posted we weren't moving. Well....apparently the move is back in play. G-man received notification last night that he is still in the running for the job. BUT....at the lower pay level. Which will mean a pay cut if he gets this job and accepts it. Add in the loss of my job, and his second job.....
I know I will be able to find something. (Maybe I am being naive....but I really don't think that it will be a huge issue). In the ideal world, he won't need the second job if my job will cover that pay (about $10,000), and for the first time since the kids were born....we will GASP.....have a "normal" schedule.
But the prospect of a pay cut is scary. I know others of you have been laid off and I probably shouldn't whine about a pay cut....but I know the bills, and a pay cut freaks me out. I am trying to keep in perspective that the cost of living is less there....some of the bills we have here will go away (like the oil bill....although it will be replaced by gas and electricity to a degree....but probably not as much as we are paying now). We will get some money back from deposits and whatnot.
Worst case scenario we live at my parent's house for a spell (although that will majorly screw with the kids' schooling)
I know this is what we want....it just is freaking us out that we may actually get it.
We are hoping to know within 2 weeks. Until then.....my new to-do list of 37 things is calling....along with non-stop meetings, Bookfair, G-man's mom coming to visit. I have enough to do and focus on so I am not worrying about the move.
Oh and as a side note....my "31" To-Do list...I got down to 3 things left...and they have been shelved for a bit. They need to get done before my mother-in-law comes...but if I do it now...I will just have to re-do it. So they will wait for a bit.
