I hereby join the ranks of the unemployed!

yep, got laid off today, sucks for sure
also got another 1cc fill today so I can't wallow in a large pizza with a chaser of ice cream.....lol

I'm a half-full kind of girl so here are my mantras for the day,

it is not the worst thing that could happen
I am luckier than most in this situation (hubby is a retired 100% disabled veteran and this can support my family, I worked for the extras)
I have my health care through the VA
I can spend more time on "me"
I was just saying how I wish I could simplify some....now I will have to

Well, all that said...I am still sad :( this company has been great and very supportive. We just hit a downturn like so many others....I will miss the peeps ALOT (((Rick))) - my office bud.

Maybe I will post a little more often now! Well, going to sign off and get a good nights sleep. Tomorrow is my last day and I have got so much crap to clean out of that place....music on my puter, pics all while trying not to look at Rick or I will cry, I am such a baby.

xoxo,
Jen
