Need to vent
I have to whine a little, especially since my car is my profile pic. I was in an accident last week Monday. I'm ok. The other driver is ok. I got a ticket for failing to yield (I did yield, but apparently not enough to avoid being hit by someone who sped up when the light turned yellow). Yesterday, my insurance told me the car is a total loss. I am devastated.
It isn't just losing my car. It is that I will likely end up in a new car payment when I would have been done with this one at the end of September. I had made plans to use the money I wasn't going to be spending on the car to go back to martial arts and also to save so I can finally get out of Vegas. I hate it here. I've always hated it here. I'm getting really unhappy with my job. I finally saw a light at the end of the tunnel and thought maybe we'd actually get out next summer. That is what was getting me through each day. I have to stay at least until the end of September because my company has a cash balance plan that vests at 3 years of employment. That is a couple thousand dollars I can't give up with 4 months left until I can keep it. Since I won't move my kid to a new school in the middle of his first year of middle school, it means staying until next summer. I was prepared to deal with that since I had a clear and definitely do-able plan. I know we can make a new plan, but we've been making indefinite plans since we moved here 11 years ago. We've never had anything that we could count on. To get out of here, I need to be sure we have enough money to make up for my loss of a job until I get a new one in Colorado (which is where we really want to be). David's job will move, mine won't.
Also, my supervisor, who I love, is quitting because the supervisors are pretty much abused at my job. Having her to talk to when I got sick of talking to unhappy people on the phone really helped make work a little better. No idea who will replace her.
I know it isn't the end of the world, but right now I kinda feel like it. It is one thing after another and I feel like things really fell apart yesterday and I just don't know what to do at this point.
Thank you all for letting me whine at you . . . again
