I'm around now and then.
Last Friday was my last day at work. It was an absolutely wonderful place to work and I sure wish I could have stayed on. The original offer was three months of full time work while one of their mechanics went on parental leave, so his wife could go back to work. Six weeks into those three months, he decided to stay off for six months, so they asked me to stay on longer. No way I was going to pass up that opportunity! In all, I had 24 1/2 weeks.
So I had to pack up all my stuff and move my toolbox out at the end of Friday. I cried.
I spent Saturday with a friend. Sunday morning was church, where I discovered that the rooftop HVAC unit was leaking water through the ceiling. Spent a few hours band-aid-ing it together. Monday I did pretty much nothing but watch the NASCAR race, and then spent the evening with friends. Today I spent several hours fixing the HVAC unit, servicing and cleaning it. Inspected and changed the filters in the other two units as well. Then had baseball this evening.
Tomorrow I'm working. Good friends own a property maintenance company and I work for them any time I don't have any other work. He needs to take a couple of days off from the daily work to do family stuff and some quoting for other work. The guy he's had working with him this summer is only 15 years old, so he can't work on his own, and definitely can't drive. So tomorrow I get to learn the new lawnmower and the new contracts, then next week I work with the young guy.
Then, one of these days, I'll get my resume done and start pounding the pavement.
