Slight Change in Holding Pattern but Still Hovering

June 17th, 2016 at 06:54 am

So it has finally been announced that company 2 has gotten the contract at Big Company and they were signing the paperwork today. Company 2 is the one that supposedly said they would hire DH, and used his name for his position in their bid paperwork. So I guess this is a smidgeon of progress. No offer yet for DH, but that could be weeks away.

A more optimistic me would find this promising, but I am not a more optimistic me. I am a completely and totally cynical me. As in I'll believe it when I see it, but not before.

I'd still rather he work one county over, but at this point, any job is better than no job. I am dreading having to pay for COBRA. It is going to be so freaking expensive. Dreading having to meet a yearly deductible all over again if he does get a new job and new insurance, too. However COBRA and living expenses will wipe out our EF in 4 to 5 months, so new job and new insurance and new deductible is the better option. But ugh.

    I would probably feel the same way, about the job and COBRA. You have worked so hard to pay off your debt. These things take time but try to hang in there, it does look promising.

    This is hard to swallow, but at least you can be thankful that you have savings to cover the COBRA and living expenses. Lots of people get caught without.
