You’ve got to grieve sometimes.
Today was Emile’s last day at Delta Muskoka Resorts as Systems Manager. It’s somewhat lacking in impact as he starts tomorrow at ClubLink Muskoka Resorts as IT guy (he doesn’t really have a title, just get them up and running and keep it that way!). Grandview is closed, most of the team members are laid off, and Muskoka has lost another 100 jobs. Emile got his first job at Grandview when we first moved to Huntsville, and spent 3 years there before returning last summer. I am sad for him, I am sad for us, the displaced team members (and their families) and Muskoka. In four months when Emile’s ClubLink contract is up, we will start another path, find a new place, build a new life.
I know things could be worse, I know that I should thank God for unanswered prayers, I know we can remember we have our health and each other. But I don’t particularly want to today. There is enough time for all of that tomorrow. Today I want to be sad a little for Grandview and all of the other things that change even when we don’t want them to.
