My mom and sisters. Barely got to know them and then it became obvious we were very different.

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.

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.

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.
