    oh, crap. what did I do?!

    I suppose its only natural to go through some amount of "oh crap" when picking up and relocating. Let me explain my "oh crap" moment....

    Monday the big bossman, myself, and one of our partner companies sat down to chat a few things over and get lined up for Tweedle (the new guy I'm training). Any rate, they let me know that the two companies are making a merger and will be going under one roof. The crusty (but very sweet) guy holding the other half of the company sold out to the young, spunky partner company.

    1. cool. they have an awesome crew = more fun @ work!
    2. big business. its going to be huuuge.
    3. they'd been grooming me to move into management and now actually have a role for it
    See, the thing is- ive been at a very small (<10) people at my company, and I've been patiently waiting for it to grow, or for Christ's sake.. do...anything. Now its tripling. Just makes this all a bit harder.

    I'm still very optimistic about the new job, CO, etc., and have already let my current company know I'd like to stay involved as a consultant- they're more than eager to get that lined up, so there is a door for me here.

    I'm also having issues with the leasing office out in CO. Hope I still have someplace to live when I get there.

    Breath in, breath out

    Natural to have those thoughts.

    3 months after I had moved to Miami from the UK, I had what the ..... have I done, turns out best thing I ever did.

    Two years later I would have lost my well paid cushy job in Scotland, with no hope of matching the salary I was on.

    So, they're going from maybe 10 to around 30 people? That's not that big. Keep the consulting door open, but don't regret taking the job in CO.

    Btw, saw your comment on my blog, haha.

    errr... under 10 to 30. Still, things are happening and I'm missing it! I know, I need to get over it. But ranting about it helps

    Yeah, I totally blog stalked you. It wasn't all that hard, being in your sig and all

    Agree - don't panic. They obviously love you there (old job) and you are leaving on very good terms - you're golden there.

    You have a nice new job and exciting move lined up, and you can always come back if you change your mind, no harm done. The new job and home will indeed fall into place.

    There is some fear of unknowns here, but it's balanced by opportunity and options.
