Tuesdays can really suck

Well, the inevitable happened; after dodging layoffs for the last 24 of 26 years, I got laid off today. To be honest, I'm really not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. I'm upset because I've spent a considerable portion of my life there, but on the other hand, it sure isn't the place it used to be. Only time will tell how this will work out, but work out it will.

There's going to be much investigating and planning going on around here over the next few weeks. I figure I've gotten a good start by shredding 26 years of now worthless correspondance and statements. This was really quite satisfying.

OK, I admit, I'm a bit of a packrat and have managed to put off doing this chore for quite some time. The good news, I've already gained over half a file cabinet.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost your job.. I find shredding paper really theraputic as well- here's to more cabinet space!

Sorry about the layoff. Hopefully, this will be a good chance for you to explore other things. I wish my husband would shred all the paper he brought home from his almost 30 years in the same place. I don't know how he'd feel, but I'd LOVE it.
