Yesterday was a very emotional day at work. The departmental cuts we've been dreaded since the beginning of August finally happened, and eight people were laid off. There was a lot of sorrow among my coworkers. Then there was a meeting to discuss the structure of the department going forward - and it came out that, come the financial year end (February, for us), there is the possibility that our department would be outsourced and we'd all be out of a job. Whee.
The silver lining is that I still have a job. At least until February.
Good things of the last couple of days:
1/ Still Employed! Yay!
2/ New phone. My old one I've hated since the day I got it, because my other one broke and I needed a phone right away. This one is pretty shiny - touch screen data phone with a slide out keyboard. I've caught up to last year! :D
3/ Break out the fall fashions. I got to wear my fabulous white leather coat for the first time last night (the one I snagged *for free*).
