Okaaaay.

So my contract ended yesterday and they bobbled the extension and finally got me a 2-month extension in the afternoon to sign.

They had previously pleaded with me to come on full-time, which changed to a dual offer of full-time or contract "if I prefer", which changed to a 3-month contract offer, which changed to a 2-month contract offer. 

So you can see where this is going, right ?  ( They can't afford me and are trying to figure out what to do. )

.....

So, since the guy who understood the value I bring was let go 2 weeks ago (my old boss who brought me in), I now am in a pickle and so are they.  Good news is, my old friend at the L bank is reaching out again.  And the new contract has a 3-week notice clause if either side wants to terminate.

So this is what I am going to do:

Meet my new boss today and say "This job makes sense to both of us with me as permanent employee. I had discussed the terms with old-boss and I understood that they only needed some time in May to set it up.  I also need to decide in May if I am staying or not, so please let me know asap if you intend to offer full time or if you want to get rid of me after our launch May 7th."

This is necessary also because I want full-time, as my wife and I are expecting now.
