Well, found out today that my contractor job is being eliminated due to budget cuts. Yep, I've known from day one that this was a 4 month contract that I took over from someone else (he got fired) but it had been funded for the past 3 years so I thought "maybe" I would get renewed. Nope.
The military is running on a Continuing Resolution Authority based on 2012 budget and they get money 1 time per quarter. One had to go and I was the low one on the totem pole. I LOVED the job. It was back at the installation where I retired, and as hokey and cheesy as it sounds, I am so passionate about that place and the Soldiers we take care of. It is really my hearts desire. I really thought I would lose it due to Sequestration, but lost it due to the current budget.
DH and I started preparing at the beginning of the year for this. I actually have all the disposables and decorations for DH's open house in June, my Easter shopping for the kids and gkids is done, been socking some extra "cookie jar" money away just in case.
Dangit - except for the Lieutenant I worked for, I really loved everyone I worked with! Crap Crap Crap.
Once door closes, another opens - trying to let that sink in.....I LOVED THAT JOB!!!!!
