Well

Time to put my money where my mouth is.

Not sure what is going to happen, or when.

I kind of want to vomit.

But I'm also kind of excited about ...

who knows?... possibilities?...

just a real earnest belief that there are risks worth taking.

I really believe it.

Just keep breathing!

Right before I graduated college and started my first grown-up job, my friend's father asked me how I was feeling. I told him I was scared. He said, "Why don't you choose to be excited instead?"

That was 12 years ago, and whenever I feel frightened to take a leap, I hear that in my head. Doesn't always work of course, but it's not a bad mantra. :)

What HC said. That's brilliant.

Im pulling for you Mrs F. Who knows? Maybe whatever is about to happen will be the best experience you and the family ever had :)

HC & Gigs,
""Why don't you choose to be excited instead?""
Yes, yes, I agree! Since I have no idea where we'll be headed or when ... just that he is going to have to leave his current situation asap so the search is ON... I'm filling all my time with searching for random decrepit victorian mansions, weird caboose turned house alternatives and church & one room schoolhouse conversions in every state I think might be on the list. It's oddly comforting to know that there are so many futures to choose from.
Plus, I think this time we'll rent out our house instead of selling it... so.... it shouldn't be quite as stressful as past moves.

Kelly,
"Maybe whatever is about to happen will be the best experience you and the family ever had :)"
That's what we're shooting for!

Gigs said...

asap? what gives? PS, I say you take the awesome convertible with you!

Kiki said...

EEEK!!! So excited for you guys...the gypsy in me loves a good move and goodness knows I'm always saying, "let the worst bring out my best". I know you'll get through whatever happens as a team and with your sense of humor in full effect!!!

Sending you lots of love!!

Kiki,
""let the worst bring out my best""
Love it!
I also hope the worst brings out the large historic home ;)

Gigs,
It's complicated. He originally took this job at a serious pay cut and a demotion with the promise that would be rectified as soon as corporate had the funds. That has only partially come to pass. There was a gamble that the guy above him would have left by now, and we could afford to live here so we could wait him out. He has recently been making it clear that he is not leaving and may have been working behind the scenes to keep Mr F in his current situation in order to protect his own position. We came hoping that things would work out in 2-3 years and we're at that mark and not only have they NOT worked out but it is clearly not going to change. It's a dead end now for him. And while we do love living here I don't love him working so much for so little $ and respect. It's not right. Another title is moving here and it was the perfect situation on all fronts but we just found out they are going with someone else (he did make it to the top pool... as always... kind of feeling like always the bridesmaid never the bride). All of that info has been hanging over his current position and they were aware of the possibility that he might get offered the job and he'd leave. It's become really tense and it's time to get a move on.

Would love to know what you find (with pics, pretty please). Those all sound like dream homes to me. Seriously.

I think I have found some wonderful properties for you to consider.

Mrs Furious said...

Smitty,
bwahahahahaha... at least we'd have tornado safety totally covered!

You'll laugh in the face of tornadoes. Also? Zombie hordes, nuclear devastation, post-apocalyptic scenarios, vampires, werewolves, jack-booted government thugs a-comin' to take your guns, and pesky neighbors. There's really nothing to lose here, other than your sanity...and maybe some hair, as I can't attest to whether or not these former nuclear missile silos are completely free of radioactive debris. But hey: radiation sickness is great for weight loss! See? Perfect.

Furious Family no matter what comes and where you go I look forward to hearing about it. I wish ya'll the best and hope Mr.F finds the best of the best!!

WTF?? I'm furious too. He's such a great talent and a wonderful person. He needs to get where he deserves to be.

Mrs Furious said...

Gigs,
We're kind of flabbergasted that someone would be that stupid. But as my friend said... it's kind of a gift when we needed it most. Who knows what will come of this?

Mrs Furious said...

Andrea,
Thanks!


decided to edit out that other comment... since I'm not sure what kind of action Mr F's going to take.

Gigs said...

sorry, I shouldn't have asked...

Mrs Furious said...

Gigs,
Oh, no, it's fine... I'm DYING to talk about it. I just don't want anyone to get a tipoff before action can be taken on that. Once Mr F gets it documented I'll get into the details.
