"Do I have clean khakis and a nice shirt?" I thought about it for a second and responded, "I think so, why?" He responds, "Have to go to a dinner interview with Blah Blah and the VP of the company." When I read that, I knew what his answer was going to be, but I asked anyway..."What for?" Of coures, I didn't like the responce....."Possible Promotion"
I am so upset. We knew this day would come when he took the job, but not this soon. It would be a Market Manager position. That means he would be in direct control of multiple stores in a district. More responsibility and less time with the family. Some travel is required, more time away from the family. He already works 10+ hours a day, what more do they want from him. Yes, there would be a pay raise, but who cares about the money. That's more hours I have to deal with the children ALONE!
I could just cry right now. I can't even put into words the thoughts going through my mind. I don't want to feel like a single Mom. As it is, they never leave him alone on his days off. With a promotion, he has to be on-call 24/7. I think I'm gonna be sick.
He knows how I feel about a promotion. I don't think he really wants one at this point in his career, but the dinner interview, is not optional. He doesn't know much more than what I've said here, but I have a feeling we aren't going to like what is discussed.
For now, I must go iron some clothes and bite my tongue. All the while, screaming inside....
