I am now officially conflicted.  I have seen the relocation information for new union employees.  They move us.  They pay for one househunting trip for the two of us.

We do need approval for any household goods over 12,000 pounds.  We are over 12,000 pounds, I think the garage alone weighs that much.  Not to mention the Goldwing.

Have a year to move.  Can make Mark go on ahead and he can get a little place until spring/early summer.  When. the. snow. is. gone. and I have made a dent in the bills.  

Even with the new job, I still need to go take to someone about debt management/budget/reducing my interest.   Am waiting for Mark's pay to get cut so I will have a true picture of how little money we will have.

Stop. Now.

I begin a new job tomorrow.  I think I might like this job.  At least let me have a chance at it.

Vermont called for Mark.  Vermont seems to have a woman in HR whose village is looking for their idiot.  Vermont first called at the end of August.  Called again in September to make arrangements for Mark to fly there to take some test.  Mark spent over a week trying to get South Carolina test scores released to Vermont.  HR woman must have visited her village.  Finally, she calls and tells us that she does not have the score but not doing anymore interviews.  

Fast forward to early October.  HR woman calls again.  Is he still interested?  Yes.  Can he come this week?  No.  Offered a different week.  Told us she would get back to us in a couple of days, had to coordinate with the interviewer. 

New phone call, from the same gentleman who called us the first time.  Are we still interested?  Seems Mark's resume has been appearing and disappearing off and on his desk.

They want to start the next class in December.

I told Mark, unless they are packing us up and moving us, I am not driving cross country at the end of November.  Besides, we have no money to move or get a new place.  Mark can go, we can rent him either a room or a small apartment until spring or summer of next year.  I've lived alone before, I can do it again.  I can hope the winter is a mild as they say it will be.

God does seem to have a very strange sense of humor this fall.  Knock. it. off.

Mark was scheduled to fly to Florence, SC for an interview tomorrow.  I spent considerable time last night convincing him to carry on a bag with extra interview clothes - some of the c lothes I had just bought him because nothing I bought 3 years ago fits him.

First of all, he overslept.  Not a big deal, there is no security line at the airport where he was flying out of.  2 hours before hand?  Forget it, they don't even open two hours before the first flights out and his flight left at 6 am.  He began to wonder why they did not give him all his boarding passes when he first checked in.

He flew into Denver.  According to Delta  at Denver, the final airport was closed due to the remote chance Ernesto was going to morph into this huge hurricane.  He called the company, they called the airport, nope, airport was open.  No problem.

Got to Atlanta.  Delta had cancelled his final hop, in annticipation of the huge storm.  Mind you, the final destination is over 80 miles inland and not one spin of any track that storm could take involved it turning left along South Carolina.  He finally got out of Atlanta way late by flying into a different city and renting the car from there instead of the one reserved.  I had to convince him to make the car reservation NOW and not wait until he landed so that there would be a car for him.  I doubted he was the only person trying to get from Atlanta to last location and all of those people might be looking for a car too.

Good thing he took extra clothes.  Guess whose luggage is MIA?  Guess who doesn't have any toiletries because W thinks toothpaste is a threat to his freedoms?  Oh way, I am morally and intellectually confused if I desent against the current administration.  Have they taken away my right to think and have an opinion?

I left off much wanking since he may or may not read this and quite honestly, even I don't kick him when he is this down.  Just not sporting.
