So this week has been one crazy week! On Monday I walked in the door for my workday at the company I have been working for for almost 8 years now and was told we were having a meeting. When I walked in the door I noticed there were a few people in the meeting that weren’t usually at our meetings. Well, that’s because they were there to share the news that our company has been acquired by their company. Yes, our company was sold to a bigger company.
At first I felt like I might throw up… But over the past few days I have become more comfortable with the idea and so far things seem like they will be ok. None of is have lost our jobs and our original company was kind enough to share the profits with us. It was based on our time with the company, so of course you got more the longer you have been there. We will get our bonuses in 5 installments due to the contract with our new company. But I am not complaining because being here for almost 8 years had really paid off when it comes to these bonuses. I’m not going to go into any detail, but let’s just say I will be able to have the vow renewal of my dreams, our vacation in a few weeks will be amazing, and I will be able to pay off all my debt (I don’t have much anyways) and fence my whole property. Weights that have been on my shoulders for some time now are gone. I am also reminded of how much my hard work has paid off.
I am sure it’s going to be quite the adjustment as the new company is run way different than our old one. But after time I am sure I will adjust and be just fine. It will just be a little strange around here for a while. Our comfort zone has been removed and we have to find a way to make a new one. And we will 🙂
