I went into work very early this morning for a meeting, I explained what was going with A to my boss. He was sympathetic. He's allowing me to keep working on smaller projects from home for an indefinite period of time (I really hope the economy picks up). My pay will be based on time spent working.
It broke my heart to do this but it's what I needed to do at this time.
I'm thankful to have this option. I dunno what else to do.
