Uncertain Certainty

15 Aug

The Certain -  Andrew has accepted a job.  He is all set to start working as a Project Controls Analyst at Overland Contracting on August 25. 

The Uncertain – It is a significant amount less than he was making and we're trying to tweak our numbers to make it all work so I might still be able to stay home with the kids.  If not, my job hunt will continue.

The Certain – This job will eventually lead him to what he's always wanted to do – work in the field of Civil Engineering.  The prospect of that makes both of us really happy.

The Uncertain – How much will the required travel keep Andrew away from home?  He was told during the interview that workers can be away anywhere from a few weeks at a time to a few months. I'd be lying if I said I was 100% ok with that. 

The Certain – It feels great for us to know we will have an income and benefits again.  Fortunately, it all is timing out well with the end of the severance and everything. 

The Uncertain – Did we make the right decision?  Should we have gambled and waited for something else? 

The Certain – It's an income.  It's a great opportunity.  It's necessary.  It's a decision. 

That's certain.
