Called and talked to daddy for a bit yesterday. Not much going on out that way. Seems we're about 20-25 degrees cooler and are having more rain than them. He requested we get one of those big movie fans they use on set and blow some of this out their way. He's been to his surgeon again for his shoulder. For those of you just getting to know me...he was in an accident around the time I was in the hospital for my gall bladder (me, then daddy and then gramma dying in January...I guess that makes 3 for my family and I dont need to worry for this year right?). I guess he's holding steady. Not ready for work yet (though he desperately wants to go) but better than he had been. They are working at paying things off so they can move east sometime in the next few years.
Hubby forwarded an email from work. Looks like one of his workmates has put in his resignation. I guess he had an offer from a company called TriQuint. I checked their site out and they had lots of posting for openings in the Dallas plant. The good thing is that they also have a plant in High Point , NC. If he was to apply for a position there it'd put us 4-5 hrs from his folks, 7-8 hrs from my brother and 2-3 hrs from my SCSis. Unfortunately, they only have one opening there right now and hubby doesnt have the training for it. He is, however, considering going back to school for it...it'd only take 2-3 yrs to get the degree needed. It wouldnt help us out now, but would look good on a resume later. He was telling me that the Dallas plant for TriQuint is in an old TI building. I told him...go to the company and have them buy the plant you're in, then we wont have to worry about moving! LOL
Got an email yesterday I wasnt really expecting. Let me rephrase that...I was half not expecting but knowing this person I should have known I'd get one. I really need to get it answered sometime today. It was very nice to hear from her again. I realize that things will more than likely not be the same as they were because of my own stupidity, and I dont really expect them to be as such, but it's a start.
