I finally have my formal job offer from Nnn. Now it really is "pi$$ or get off the pot" time.
The delay between the elation of verbally being offered it, and this formal step, has caused me to start asking myself some long hard questions. This is the fluttering of a cautious man's heart rather than any fundamental issues. Distilling it all down, it is really the fact that I do want a new challenge, but I am concerned what it is going to do to my home life, for my work/life balance, and the knock-on effect on the rest of the family.
In truth, I want change, and any change, even within Starfleet, is likely to disrupt this some. However, sometimes our childcare challenges are on a knife edge. Maggot 2 was ill, again, this week, and how would we manage looking after him if my new role requires me to be elsewhere, and I need to be in the office coz I am the new boy, and I also have less "in the bank" with my team and manager to do the "dodgy stuff" like that?
