TA's job situation has gone from bad to worse as the two-month extension passes. I had thought that this would happen as I've watched similar things happen to friends in the past. Plans are being hatched, cunning and otherwise, to get us out of this employment pickle in a stronger position than before. We're entering, for us, uncharted territory as we seriously consider taking a year off to travel, amongst other things. It's an interesting mix of excitement and terror! TA and I have flirted with doing this before, but this time we might really mean it.
Watch this space, as they say.
