unable to bear the thought of staying behind when coach moves 5 hours away, i was determined to find a way to stop that. i put lots of time and effort into figuring everything out… there had to be a way to make it work. had to be.
(coach was a bit bothered by me staying here as well… i think i’ve sorta grown on him)
(he’ll never admit it though. big man that he is. will deny that he would be lost without me by his side)
and there was. yep. i do not have to stay behind. i get to move when coach does. now i’m breathing easier. things will be tough for a few months money wise but that’s okay. it’s not like things haven’t been tough before. i’ve always landed on my feet and will do so this time as well. and this marriage is much more important than what we can afford to eat for dinner!
so… yesterday morning we received coach’s new contract, he signed it and we faxed it back. official. done deal! and after spending a few hours chasing down insurance information and figuring out what the consequences of me not working for a few months… i turned in my letter of resignation! sorta scary…. exhilarating… soothing… mind boggling… all at the same time. i don’t know when it happened, but at some point in my adult life, i became responsible. i used to quit a job without looking back…. piss me off, make me unhappy at work and i was gone. but now… things are different.
it’s weird to think that in a few short weeks i won’t be working. temporarily. and in some ways, i’m very excited about it! i have so many things i want to do. and i will have a few months to enjoy that! while eating ramen noodles for sure ha!
