I'm a little upset, but it's Rick's MO to not do anything until absolutely necessary, so now he has to find a new job. He's out looking as I write this. I had been encouraging him to be trying to set something up since about October 1st, so he had a job to go to, but it was a little hard because he really didn't know when this one would end, but once they wouldn't sign a new contract, December 1st and just wanted to go along until they were finished, I told him to look harder and if something came along he had no obligation to stay on, having no contract and all. Anyway...that's all water under the bridge. Hopefully he will find something soon, because we have no reserve to get us through much more than January. Coming back from this trip and all. He has one paycheck waiting for him (he's picking that up today) and then if they pay him for the two days he worked last week, and that's it.
I'm just going to have to have more faith and pray harder. After the absolute confirmation we got while back in Idaho that this is home and where we are supposed to be, I will now have to put that to the test. I do wish Rick had been a little more assertive when he told them about the trip and asked if it would affect his job, but once again that's all hindsight and no sense in worrying about it now. I feel like I should be more upset about the whole thing, but I just can't seem to work up the steam and I suppose that's a good thing. Nothing to do now, but look for work and hope for the best.
