Well folks... it's finally happened. I've been lamenting and prognosticating about this since last May, and now my worst fears have been realized. Today my company laid me off after 13 years. Happy New Year to me.
I don't really have a whole lot to add at this time but I just wanted to let you know in case you're wondering why I'm not around so much these next few weeks. As you can imagine, I'm not quite feeling very inspired to write anything clever right now. As well, I've got some serious job hunting to do and will be spending all my free time trying to get off unemployment.
In the meantime... I'll take any thoughts, prayers, crossed fingers/toes/eyes, good luck charms and magic spells you might have up your sleeves. Even better... I'll take any job information you might know about.
And don't worry about me - we're gonna be ok. I'm still just a little shell-shocked by the whole experience. This is the first time in my entire adult life that I've been without a job. And I gotta tell you, it ain't a good feeling.
