It's official. Mr. W accepted the job. Last week the contracts were signed and delivered back to the company's lawyers. This morning, Mr. W turned in his letter of resignation. He'll be doing both jobs through the end of the month.
I am, of course, having serious anxiety over all of it -- I don't do well with change, especially those that affect our financial situation, whether those changes are good or bad. For me, any change in that arena is terrifying because I'm always afraid that the bottom will fall out.
Logically, I know this was a good move and in the end will make us happy. Further, if it doesn't work out for whatever reason, Mr. W is on good terms with the company he's leaving and the head of corporate HR told him that she will continue to call him and let him know about any openings that would be of interest in his career path. So...the safety net is still there.
