I was going to talk about integrity. Its now rarity, and how important it is to have it. But instead I will tell you what is really going on here.
Apparently my post about the USDA program coupled with the wreck, and husband still being in pain has bitten us on the butt. More on that in a moment.
People can make poor judgements in their lives. I have, I admit to them, and do try to fix them. However there are some people in this world that can be so self absorbed that they choose to make poor decision. As in the ends justify the means. I feel sorry for them, as joy is an elusive creature.
I digress. Husband was fired this am. It is truly unfortunate, and the reason was rather bizarre. Almost I am breaking up with you before you can break up with me. The unfortunate part of this, isn't about us, and no money at this moment, but for the shop owner. If he hadn't been so quick to jump, any transition of Husband's possible departure would have been kept to a min. He could have helped his replacement earn the trust of his clients. But with this abrupt departure, the transition will not be smooth. We have been in this industry long enough to witness similar accounts.
We were livid this morning. But now I fell sorry for them. Husband has been with them five years. Has only taken time off because he ended up in ER or the hospital, or another emergency. He has never taken a vacation or holiday in all that time. Never requested more than an extended weekend. They are losing a loyal employee and talented tech.
This was the only thing holding us back from picking up and leaving. Husband didn't want to leave his boss in a lurch. But now. . . Now we are free. Husband's reputation follows him. Within an hour of people knowing about the firing, job offers have come. We can pick and chose the US over. Where do we want to homestead?
We have found a place that we have simply fallen in love with. It has everything this clan wants and dreamed about. And it is something we can afford, as soon as the Neophyte Homestead sells. Today we are selling off most of our things to help get the down payment to hold the property. It will take a few months to get it all, lots of scrimping, so this might be my last post for awhile. No fret, I will find a way to say hi.
I must confess that this firing has turned out to be a blessing for our family. It's going to be rough for a bit, but that's ok. We have a new adventure that can take us anywhere.
Stay tuned, it's just starting to get fun.
