So, Hubby’s conversation with his future boss yesterday did not go as we thought. The professor still wants Hubby to start work as soon as possible, but it seems like he expects him to do that work for free.
Are you fucking shitting me?
My husband is a nice guy. Perhaps too nice, too willing to accommodate, but he is not a slave!
I already hate his new boss, and I haven’t even met the guy yet. My opinion, though? He’s taken the fact that his name sounds like “god” a little too seriously.
So I’m back to being stressed, with the added bonus of being totally pissed off that he would even have the audacity to ask my husband to work for free.
There has been a little more back-and-forth between them via email, but we won’t hear anything for sure until at least Monday, if not after the holidays.
Speaking of which, I refuse to let this news ruin our time with my family for Christmas. We leave today (positive vibes for good driving conditions appreciated!) and should arrive at my sister’s house sometime before noon tomorrow. I’m so looking forward to seeing her, and I know she’s dying to see my bump in person. I can’t wait for my niece to be able to feel Thumper move. And I have no idea what my dad’s reaction will be, but I’m eager to find out. This will be the first/last/only time they’ll get to see me pregnant before Thumper’s arrival. It should be a time to celebrate.
So thank you for letting me vent here. Hopefully I’ll get through the rest of the week without exploding!
