Where's my crystal ball?

I want to know when the RIF will happen. I want to know how long we'll have once they announce it. I want to know for absolutely sure whether or not James will lose his job (pretty sure on this one). I want to know what (if any) position they will offer him within TYC. I want to know where that position will be.

I want to know if a Youth Counselor position will open up in Concord within the next few weeks. I want to know if James will get an interview for that Court Counselor position in Charlotte that he applied to. I want to know if it would be worth it for him to fly out there just for an interview.

I want to know if we're moving to North Carolina, or possibly some other place in Texas just until the end of the summer and then to McAllen if he got the South Texas College teaching job. I want to know for sure when/if we'd lose the Axia thing if he took that job.

I want some idea of what the future holds. It's been 3.5 weeks of nothing but questions, questions and more questions. The closer we get to getting some answers, the more nervous I get.

Sigh. At least tomorrow is Sunday. Sounds like I need it, right?

I want you to know too!!

Now we know that we will NOT be staying at Truman for another year, at least that much is for sure. But I want to know where we will be going! I can't believe I am once again moving this summer and once again don't know where. Sigh. So, I know a small bit of what you are going through, but much more uncertainity on your side. I hope you get some answers soon and I hope they are the "right" answers (whatever those are!) :)

Same boat as well, but not to the same extent. I keep trying to focus on enjoying the here and now instead of being obsessed with what the future holds, but it is really hard. I know that everything will be okay and it will all work out in the end, which is the answer that I receive whenever I fast or pray, but I want to know WHEN! It feels like 2008 was a year of waiting waiting waiting, but I am sick of waiting and hoping to do less of it in 2009. I hope you get some firm answers soon! I'm sorry!

I'm so sorry! I wish you had answers too!!! I am also very impatient and want to know NOW!!! Like I want to say "Heavenly Father, I know it will work out... but can you just give me a hint as to when?!"

We have a little bit of that. We would like to move to the mountains, so we have a where, but we have no when because who knows when a teaching position will open up. But I am just not worrying about it because we really dont have to, so it is definately not the same situation. I know you must feel desperate to know right now and I hope something happens for you!

Good luck and we will keep you in our prayers!

The Executive Commissioner of TYC will be at our facility tomorrow. We had to find out through scuttlebutt; still getting the mushroom treatment.
