I feel sad that this thread has died, I miss you all! I just need a place to dump for the moment - so don't mind me.
When we decided to move back to Wisconsin, it was because DH was unhappy with his job. We decided to move back here and he would transfer within the company just for security and stable income until we are settled. Now, he has been disappointed by the raise he is getting for next year, the benefits package is being trimmed, and he has been put in a position of no-way-to succeed.
I am still looking for a stable job. Working part-time as morning stock is not really my idea of where I want to be for the rest of my life. There have not been many job postings for me and I have not been successful so far. Only two interviews and no success.
DH now has the possibility of getting a new job with a different company. This one would have better benefits, a potential for him to advance and about the same wage or close to it.
I am so excited for him and I hope that he gets the job. But, I am nervous about his changing jobs at this time in this economy. But work in his field is heading into a tail spin. The new job would be in a different field. So, I have some stress about what if he gets the job, quits his current position and then it doesn't work out and he is unemployed. But, he would be so much happier somewhere other than where he is working.
I am such a worry-wart! My sisters are supreme worriers, I am minor league. But it is within me and needs to be expressed - just not to DH! He gets upset when I worry about this stuff. So I post it here for my BYC friends. I hope you understand. With all the bad in the world at this time, this is so tiny.
