The fact that Grimm is coming to an end Friday.

 

I really liked that show, and loved that it was filmed in my city.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised to get an email from the wife, acknowledging my surgery and offering to provide some help/support. I replied and told her I would accept any and all help.

I do think that she and I can manage to avoid any contentious topics. I'm grateful.

This whole week. No joy in this new move. Not sure it was the best thing after all. But I'll make it work. And so many other things (right now).

Better try to follow what it says in my tagline as best I can.

There is grief that should not be underestimated when companies have layoffs.

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.

Apparently on Monday Weezie DID actually eat some of the crate mat and/or the blanket covering the crate (that she managed to pull a corner of into the crate) that I had hoped she just chewed up. 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.
