Two items of great import to report here today.
1. Jamie got sent home early today with a fever over 100-degrees and a severe headache. His doctor's appointment is at 3:30 this afternoon. Obviously, he won't be going to soccer practice today. Until it's time for the doctor, he's laying in his bed watching "Robots" on DVD. I'm hoping he'll take a little snooze, too. This will give me the opportunity to do some homework, at least.
2. I have one major piece of news about which I'm not sure how to feel. On a personal level, it makes me joyously happy. On a professional level, I don't know how major of an impact it will have on the company. Rat-tail turned in an open-ended letter of resignation. He may leave as early as May 1, he may stay a little longer. He didn't say for sure when he's leaving. Naturally, he chose the worst possible time to resign, as one of the partners is going on vacation next Monday and won't be back until mid-May. I think Rat-tail timed it this way on purpose. While I find this person beyond intolerable on a personal level, he did bring a lot of business in to the company and generated a lot of revenue. I'm not sure what the unwritten rules are about clients, whether they stick with the company or the engineer. I guess we'll see what happens, and if I still have a job after he leaves. I'll just pray about it and see what God has in store for me. Of course, this may be a great boon, as I had been debating what I would do after I got my undergrad next spring, anyway. This may be the impetus which shows me what direction to take. It may be just one event in a long string of events which will shape my choices. All I can do now is pray, dig in to what work there is and do my best.
