I resigned from my job last week …

March 13, 2009

I sat crying in my boss’ office as I gave him my resignation letter.

I didn’t catch him by surprise by giving him my notice, but he still asked me, “why are you giving me your resignation?”

“I just need to go …” was all I could say through my tears and all that he needed to hear.

If for some reason you don’t know, let me fill you in on my situation. Aaron and I have never lived in the same city. We’ve been married for almost 3 months and I still live in Los Angeles and he lives in San Diego. It’s has always been our choice to have a long distance relationship, but we’ve come to a spot in Aaron’s career, that if I don’t move to SD, I’ll never see him at all. Even now, when I drive down on the weekends, his training is such that I only see him a few hours at a time and then he needs to go on base to get something done.

It’s bittersweet leaving my job. My co-workers say they are sad to see me go, but excited that I finally get to live with my husband. And I’m excited about that too.

Since I got engaged, I’ve been trying to figure out how to keep my job and live in San Diego, and I just can’t find the solution.

My last day here is March 27. I don’t have another job to go to in SD. I don’t know if you’ve ever worked 10-11 hours a day, travel every weekend, and tried to look for a new job in a different city … but it’s really hard to do.

If anyone has any contacts in the San Diego area, please let me know! I’ll gladly send you my resume.

    Hang in there, Claire… you’ll find something! A company would be crazy not to have you.

    Claire– I’m sure thinking of you. I know this has to be a tough thing, but the sweet overpowers the bitter in the long run. I’ll be praying that the Lord will open some doors for you, job-wise, with this big move. Love you!
