Here We Go Again December 5, 2007

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

My current client extended me for three months, to end December 31st. Ten days ago, they asked if I might extend again. Not an offer; an “Are you interested?”  Having already started searching for my January client, I said yes, if they confirmed quickly.

The last time we did this, I was flattered at the extension, but the way they did it I lost three days pay. “We don’t have an account yet, so just stay home.” Yeah, right.

Nothing heard ten days later, so I told them I would take Monday off for a job interview.  They said, “Good luck”, and they meant it.  I flew toTampa on Sunday and interviewed with a medical device company on Monday – six people! That’s exhausting.

 I got the contract on Tuesday, and I said I’d drive down after 12/31 with Big Ride and Big Easy, and Lacy, and start on Monday January 7. The weather was warm, humid and lovely when I was there on Monday!

I checked out some RV campgrounds, and guess what?

They are full of RV’s with Snowbirds fom Illinois, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

Now, back here in the trailer in the Catskills of New York, it’s 3:00 am and we just ran out of propane to heat the place.

It’s a good thing that Lacy is warm blooded. This is a One Dog Night anyway!

Yesh, I was too. You hadn’t posted in a while. I think I’d leave for FL as soon as possible!
