As some may recall, I'd posted a while ago.......basically venting about my boss. Anyhow, I think it was a tad bit misinterpreted, but many of you just said "Get off your butt and stop complaining!!" lol. I was a bit mad for a day or two, but realized you were right......we are all working, trying to make ends meet and putting up with things we may not always like. Although I was not at all thinking of packing it in......I was just frustrated.
I'd also posted about possibly making the move closer to work......based on my circumstances here (Mr. Ex and his family constantly roaming the building seems like, undesirable neighbourhood) plus the cost of commuting to work.......I decided to take the plunge and move.
My three months is up next week and I have to sign the lease on my new place this week (move date - December 1st). I heard my boss making a call yesterday and for the first time I felt nervous, so I talked to her in private and just explained my situation and asked if there would be any surprises at three months (next week). I know that's quite unconventional, but given that I am about to sign a lease binding me for a year (for significantly more rent) I felt I had to ask. She said no, she did not plan to let me go.........
Chewed that over last night.........then this morning the VP called me in and basically said that they were absolutely very happy with me, my work, my attitude, etc. and that if a change were to be made it would be on my part. My boss had told him about the lease and he said "Sign away"......business here is good......no chance of restructuring (and basically we like you)........
Wow!!! It all seems to be finally coming together. It's going to be a push to move, but I have already started and found some cheap movers........
Now if only my love life was the same.......someone in this area asked me out on a date (I assumed he was divorced) but waited until the date to tell me that "he and his wife don't get along and he lives in the basement of their house". Hmm.......had to send that one (politely) packing!!
Still a ways to go but I wanted to thank all of you who have chimed in and provided inspiration, practical advice or just plain told me to smarten up!! lol
