I just found out this minute that my contract has been renewed. FINALLY. This has been so stressful!! I really didn't know as of this morning what the hell to do about my lease and about leaving France, and packing up my apartment, and where I would be living 2 weeks hence... I am getting ready to leave for a vacation on Monday and was facing returning to unemployment, and trying to get back into the country on the 22nd with an expired residency permit. Actually, there is no way I can get an updated residency permit before I leave town, but at least I am an American, so generally immigration officers don't pay all that much attention.

This has been a really stressful week. I do like my boss a lot, and I like the place that I work, but it gets old being at the bottom of the totem pole, and being subject to the whims of the higher ups. Sometimes I think that there are people at the administrative level who must simply not remember what it is like to work for other people.

I'm glad to read that it's been renewed...the not knowing must have been so stressful! So, was it renewed for another 3 months?
