Well, I'm one of the lucky ones. I survived the layoffs this week when a lot of people didn't. It was clear why some were let go, but others...you just have to shake your head and wonder why them and not you? But I suspect this isn't the end of it. There's a lot of transition work to do right now, but eventually that will get done and with the changes taking place, I don't see us having enough work in the future to keep everyone on board.

So in a few months to a year or so, we may be doing this again. And the people left are really the cream of the crop. (I'm grateful to apparently be viewed in that same light since I'm still around. But next time, who knows?)

It's really hard. I'm happy to be employed (and very, very grateful for that), but many friends and people I admire can no longer say the same. In this economy, I'm worried for them. It's been a few years since the last big layoff and I know people who still haven't found work. Sending prayers and good wishes to all of you in similar situations, here and elsewhere.

And on a totally different subject, with my dad's cancer surgery and recovery (going well, thank you!) and the looming layoffs, I let his birthday slip up on me. Bad, me! So I'm heading over there for the rest of the weekend, which means I won't be finishing up and posting I Never, the rest of my [community profile] seasonal_spuffy  story (or reading and commenting on the other contributions) until next week or the following weekend. To anyone waiting, my apologies for the delay!

Take care, all. (And go, Texas Rangers! Heh.)
