So I decided to change jobs. My current company lives and dies by the health of the Oil industry, and right now, its not looking good. Everyone else is like "Yay! Cheap Gas!" and I am like "Oh no! Cheap Gas". I don't see anything changing in the mid-term future, so I'm pulling the rip-cord. My last day is Friday the 15th and I start the new job on Monday the 18th.
With that being said, a company that I really
would like to work for called me for an interview today. Had a really good one, and I think they are gonna make me an offer. I don't think its gonna come before I start the new place, so I might find myself in a position where I think about quitting a job that I just started. I don't feel its fair to the new company, but then again, I don't wanna pass up on this other place, as it would more or less be my dream job. Needless to say, I am very conflicted at this point, but I will only worry about crossing that bridge when and if I come to it.
I've been keeping busy with my cabin build. Now that I got the fireplace working, I don't have to have a 'winter shutdown'. The upstairs is completely done, and I am working on the downstairs now. I've enclosed the fireplace with cement board, and started installing the rock. I bought a product call Go-Stone. It is a lightweight veneer made partially from old shredded tires. Feels and looks just like real rock, but at about half the weight. It's so light, you can put it directly on drywall or cement board with tile adhesive. I got a little more than halfway done.
I figure one more good day, and I will have it rocked all the way to the ceiling and it will be complete. I got that, the St. Louis RV show next weekend, football playoffs, and a kids car to work on some time soon, and starting a new job. I don't see a spare minute for about the next month.
