Poof!

Sometimes you have something in your grasp...not even beyond your grasp, actually right there...and it still goes poof.

Josh was given an official offer letter with a salary and a start date. Nothing was listed about the offer being contingent on other things. Today he received a phone call that the offer has been rescinded because of the government funding issues.

So no vacation. No Disney (rather glad we hadn't told the girls about that). And no moving (regretting that the girls knew about that).

Back to square one with the job hunt. The current position is a post-doc and therefore, by definition, temporary, so the security of having that next step secured has also gone poof.

That's just crappy! I'm sorry.
