Life changes, and I have nothing to do but roll with it...

Right, so I figures I'd put this here for everyone to read, and you can ask me questions from there.

Today, Heather had a meeting at work at 8:30. Now normally, everyone would say "so?", but you have to realize that Heather works second shift. This was really off key to begin with. I ended up going with her to the meeting because I had an appointment with the Neurosurgeons at the VA (worthless bastards). So, as we pull in to the complex, the FIRST thing we noticed is the news crew, followed immediately by the presence of a NUMBER of police cars, the most obvious, a HMMWV. SHIIIIT. Heather and I almost said in unison...we both knew what the meeting was about... layoffs. I tried to stay optimistic, thinking that maybe the police presence meant it was only for the grunt workers, since they are Teamsters, and feared a riot. I couldn't have been more wrong. I don't know if anyone has seen the news yet, but they are shutting down the North Haven branch of the Distribution center as early as March, or as late as June 1. The only real option we have is open slots at the Freetown center... For those of you NOT in the know, that's Massachusets. SO, sometime soon, we'll know if the transfer is approved, and Heather, Dani and I pack our things, and head for MA.

It's funny. Part of me is like...YEAH, Massachusets. That should be fun. The rest of me however, even while knowing what the necessary thing is, doesn't want to go. I would miss ALL of you so much. I've finally rebuilt my life here in CT, after leaving here in 96, and not coming back till 01.

What are the immediate effects? Well, Blue Star Studios is done before it began. Even if we don't get to transfer, I doubt Heather is going to get a job where the pay keeps us as comfortable (though she's ALREADY trying her ass off, and I love her dearly for it). I just can't swing the extra $200 a month for the rent. If I DO move, well, that kind of dissolves the partnership. I'm crushed there. This was going to be my baby...me finally geting to do what I love instead of what I have to. I have yet to break the news to my partner, though I think he's going to see this relatively quickly... I'm sorry Steve...

The other big thing I stand to lose? My gaming group. Now don't get me wrong guys, it's not final yet...and that goes for you too Steve.. but DAMN, my gaming. After having to wait so long for life to give me a night...I may end up in coolsville with noone to game with, and my gaming family happily slaying without me...ugh...
So yeah, now I leve it open. Ask away, and if I know, I'll let you know...

First off, I'm so sorry. I know what it's like to be told to take your shit and go (jobwise), so hug Heather for me.

Second, it's not like you're (possibly) going to be moving all *that* far away. Things could still be doable - maybe not right away but near future is better than never.

I hope for you to get good news, and if you need moving tips I'm here for ya. :)
