Close To Home

Today was a little sobering. My company laid off about seven people. For a company that has just over one hundred people that is kind of major. Suffice it to say the ones that are left are going to be taking on more throughout the next year. In fact, I learned some new stuff this afternoon actually. This is the closest I have come to the current economy taking a bite.

The other news this brings is that my office relocation from Seattle to Redmond is delayed until at least October. That's good news to me because I can still carpool with the hubs and save wear and tear on his car as well as gas money.

I am grateful for gainful employment.

On to more news of a different kind. A friend who's husband is in the Navy left last Friday for a three year stint in Japan. She's writing about her adventures in a blog so I hope you check her out.

Hey I wandered over from Sallie's Niece's blog. Layoffs are always scary and do as much damage to the people left behind. I hope it turns out well for you.
