deja vu

the last time there were widespread layoffs at work, i didn’t sleep for roughly a month. granted, the layoffs happend at the same time my former webhost gave me a bunch of trouble.

but, i’m not sleeping tonight. my mind is reeling once again.

this shouldn’t take me by such surprise. i’ve been through it once already. but i’m still just as stunned and shocked as when the layoffs happened before. i’m quite lucky and thankful that i am still employed. if i lost my job i’d be seriously hosed and probably end up moving in with one of the sisters.

the thought of that makes me want to cry.

it’s just something about these kinds of events that make me question every part of my life. everything that’s going on and how i’m looking at things and what i can do to make things better.

of course i have no ideas yet, but i’m thinking about it.

    Down-sizing, right-sizing, surplussing, eliminating redundancies; It’s all the same. Business are hurting all over.

    I’m glad you’re working, and sorry this has affected you so badly. It’s hard to say goodbye to people we’ve worked with, but it gets easier over time.

    You have a nimble mind and an extensive vocabulary which will serve you well in whatever endeavor you seek. You also carry with you the well wishes of your loyal readers…

    I have an opening for a concubine. Let me know if you’re interested.

    Deja Vu,

    Be nice to yourself, let yourself sleep. Stop thinking and start praying. Even if you lost your job the world would not stop turning. God has a plan for you, ask Him what it is. God bless.

    If you got laid off, you will have a severance package and therefore time to find a new job. Which you will do. You are smart and all, so something will comeup. And it is a big “if” still!
