J14 is freaking out a bit and to be perfectly honest, so am I. Things seem to be moving really quickly and while this is something I've been wanting for a long time it's kind of scary that it's actually happening.
In less fun news, we had a meeting with our boss today. It turns out that we are being asked to cut our budget by $17,000. Unfortunately, the only thing we really have to cut is staff. We were essentially given the option of getting rid of our PRN person who helps us out one day a week (she has a full time job as a college professor but is moonlighting with us to keep up her clinical skills) or each of us take one unpaid day per month. We opted to get rid of our PRN person, as much as we love her, we're all looking at self preservation. Of the 5 of us permanent employees, 2 are full time (myself and another young lady married to a farmer and they just purchased land), 2 women with small children both working part time (one 80% and one 60% with 8 month old twins) and our final therapist is going through phased retirement and she only has 2 years left before she's gone. None of us were financially willing to take unpaid leave. This whole economic situation sucks. I'm just happy that we may be getting our place in spite of V not working right now. Having a bit of land will give me a sense of security in uncertain times. I just hope it all works out.
