Wow, I have been reading so many other blogs today. It is just so good to hear others opinions on this stuff and the general fellowship.
In other news, I go home this Friday. Which not only includes another exciting interaction between my diabetes and airport security, but also reminds me of why I hate being tall. Airplanes were not made for me. I am sick of cramming myself into a plastic and aluminum basket so uncomfortable that I can't fall asleep not even for the transatlantic leg of my trip.
On the way here I got bumped up to Economy Comfort Class with has some extra leg room, but I got the one that had some bits of steel in the way of my feet. I can't describe the uncomfortable situation but included many other whiny statements, needless to say I am not looking forward to the flight back, except to be home.
I was also informed that I might be promoted to an office position. It may be a slight reduction in pay, I am not sure yet. I am very conflicted because of many factors. First, part of me is convinced that they are promoting me so they can have a healthy person take my place that will easily pass the Norway Health exam for work. This company has a tendency to promote you out of the field when your health becomes dodgy.
Secondly, I have a girlfriend and I am not married. And the position will require me to move to Norway. The girlfriend does not want to move to Norway without getting married. And I do not want to force a wedding just because of a job. Its quite uncomfortable. We have been together for more than a year and lived together for quite a while. But still I feel we are not ready and I am wondering who is going to compromise if at all.
I welcome opinions,
