I don't have many friends who remember my entire family (brother, mother, father), and he and his wife do. It's a profound loss.

Aw Alexandra, I know how much you love what you're doing. Time to look elsewhere? Tell me how we can help.

There is grief that should not be underestimated when companies have layoffs. Concern for those who have lost their positions, concern about the company's strategy and finance, and uncertainty about your own future. Those are all logical reactions whether the organization was forced into the decision by forces out of their control, by their own poor management, or by drive for greater profit.

Whether or not there is a future with them that you want, usually the best course of action is to continue to do a really good job as long as you are there. {#Hug}

 
 
Thanks. They told us it was because they needed to cut costs, and that these positions weren't needed anymore (one didn't make sense to me, though)
 
I always continue to do my best; however, this company refuses to pay the entire department proper wages for this city. People working for our local competitors make ten thousand more per year than we do. It looks like greed to me. Especially when they say how much growth there was last year. I may be forced to look elsewhere out of necessity.

She's thrown up three times this evening. I'm hoping the pepto bismol tablet I gave her will help. Oh, and this is a dog who pukes without warning. Poor thing. And let's just say that she threw the same stuff up, three times ... she wouldn't let me stop her from "cleaning" it up.

But life goes on. As unfair as that feels.

You accidentally (?) did that just right. I put on the entirety of Something/Anything two days ago. (Did you know Edward James Olmos sings on side four?)

Todd was the glue that held together most of the happier times in my life, including my best high school friendship, until he "killed himself." His second wife, who I still believe did it, asked what to put on his memorial bench - which she was installing in a town he never lived in, because it was near her home. I declined to respond to her. But the answer is easy:

How much I've loved you, you'll never know, till you join me within my dream.
