This morning I got up, pretty much at the regular time, only this time I didn't have to worry about jumping on a conference call, right away. I am no longer working, as my relationship with LongView, the company I've been working for, for the past several months, has come to an end. It was one of those things where I was hired to do a specific job for the VA, and initially I was doing that job (for about 5 months), and then the VA decided that their priorities changed, and so the team was to start working on financials and work intake. I suddenly felt like a fish out of water, and on top of that they really didn't know what they wanted, just that it needed to be fixed. I had a number of conversations with the boss, and so we agreed that at the end of 2015 we would simply terminate our relationship. I didn't feel like I was honestly contributing and I really felt uncomfortable in a constant state of catch-up. Well, I know today isn't the end of 2015, and that is because due to how things were going the date kept getting pushed out, and even today, a Monday, ended up being tacked on because the HR guy was out on this past Friday. It feels good to be done with that short chapter of my career, and now Linda and I have to decide how we move forward from here. Financially, I think we're going to be okay, and with this new house and property I'm pretty sure I'm going to be kept busy, so it should be a good transition. I'll keep you posted if anything else should change.
Today, Jason went out shooting. I would have liked to have gone with him, but I did have to deal with the exit interview, at the same time he was going. He hasn't been out shooting in several weeks, and it was good for him to get a chance to be out. Probably good for him to simply get out, on his own, too. He even left the dogs here with me. That was okay because I had plenty of things to do around here, and I foresee several days (weeks?) of things to do around here, as we approach next month's activities. On March 12, we will be celebrating Jason's 5-year anniversary of the injuries, and what we're calling 5-Alive. We've invited a bunch of people to come, and we've probably forgotten a few, so if you're reading this, and you're going to be in the area, feel free to drop by and join in on the fun and celebrating. We are living at 4399 Ramona Dr, in Fallbrook and the party begins at 11:00.
Otherwise, we're all doing well and the girls are growing fast. Both of them seem to be full of energy and very happy, so I guess we've been doing something right. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
