To Move or Not to Move
That is the question before us now. Whirlpool announced yesterday that it would cut 4,500 jobs, close plants, including the one here in Iowa. JT learned yesterday that he is one of 58 Research and Design employees offered a position in Benton Harbor, Whirlpool's headquarters. Neither of us wants to move, but, as we suspected, a real-live job offer, even one 400 miles away, is pretty hard to decline. He--we have to decide by May 22. Less than two weeks. I have shows this weekend and school matinees on Tuesday and Wednesday. We plan to leave after next Wednesday's matinee and be back here in time for Friday evening's performance. The Wednesday following that we go to Philadelphia for his brother's wedding.
Which is why I'm up at 1:43 on a Thursday morning. Nothing like a series of seemingly-impossible deadlines to jolt me out of my self-indulgent doldrums.
