And I’ve still not gotten word on exactly when paychecks come in. It’s related to a particular client paying us, and the check is supposedly “in the mail.”

This means that more than likely, I’m going to have to raid my newly rebuilt savings to cover the mortgage in time, not to mention the rest of the bills. Which is where the truck fixing money is likely to come from as well.

I did get a call from a headhunter who had a job at about the right $$ amount in Raleigh. It was frozen/filled before the day was out, but he’s hopeful about the future *grin* He’s my first cold-call recruiter, and I expect more. At least this sounded like a company I would like working for, although I really dread leaving wZ. But I gotta do what i gotta do. And let me be honest – the figure he was throwing about would have more than fixed the finances for a while. It would have put us back in the pre-Renee-layoff category.

Anyway, my goal is one job applied to per day, until either wZ gets their shit together or I get another job. So far, so good.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    We actually pay for that in service and not cash on the barrelhead. As it stands, they owe us, and are still catching up *grin*
