Two week notice

Well I worked up the nerve to walk in the bosses office and drop my notice. My last day working for the IRS will be 2/26. I see my PDoc that morning.

Then the next day I will begin the drive to California. I have found a studio and a one bedroom apartment I am looking at online. Will rent one of them.

Start the new job March 2nd. I took a similar job at the same base in 2013 and I only made it 6 weeks at that job.

We will see how it goes. Back into aviation and the defense industry.

My wife says she isn’t coming but that’s why I am thinking about spending extra for the 1 bedroom. It will be more comfortable for her if she comes to visit.

She may change her mind. She hates being alone.

My wife still says I can’t go. She wants me to go back on SSDI and just stay home. Says she doesn’t care about money.

This is my chance to get back in the game. I have been out of the industry for the most part since I got sick in 2008. It’s 2020 almost 12 years later. Opportunity may not knock again. I have to try it.

She says I won’t make it.

I believe in you. Honestly, maybe it will be good for you to get away from her for a bit. She bullies you.

A partner should inspire you to do your best. I’m worried that she’s toxic.

I’m super duper proud of you, though. You’re brave!

I have failed at every job I have had since I got sick. There were a lot of them. In my current job I am failing in 3 critical areas and am still on probation. I don’t really know whether or not I would have made it through the first year and now I will never know.

But I already know how to do pilot stuff and this is a non flying job in the middle of the desert so there aren’t a lot of healthy pilots lined up wanting this job. They would rather be flying. So if I can do it it’s a good deal for me.

If you fail at this job, you can always go back on SSDI, but maybe you’ll be making even more since you’ll have paid more into the system.

That said, I think you’ll succeed.

I wish you success. You are one of the few people in this forum able to work. Once you get stable, your wife can move there with you.

My wife is telling me I can’t go. I already quit my other job. This is a predicament. I guess I will have to go beg social security for my SSDI back again.

I had a good little run of working. Almost a year.

Good luck. I applied to a coop at a big company near my hometown. We will see if I get it and if I get it if I can handle it

One week to go at work. Then I have to move. My wife still says I can’t go. She doesn’t want to live alone. Today is our anniversary. 27 years married.

Just take her with you. She can go there as little vacation. California has a lot to offer.

Well today I asked my boss if I can stay. He said it’s up to the territory manager so he couldn’t give me an answer. I am not sure what she will say. Don’t know her too well. She is out of Dallas. I have only seen her twice.

I didn’t even tell my wife I did this. She will be happy if I stay or if I go to California I will double my salary so I guess it’s fine either way.

If I go to California I am going to rent a small apartment. If I stay here I stay in my 3000 square foot house on a lake with a pool and a hot tub.
