So I figured I should go ahead and write about this, since basically, I’m rather sick of talking about it now and if I get the whole story out, it’ll be one of those elephants in the room everyone’s afraid to acknowledge. Monday morning I showed up to work and everyone was all a-buzz talking about an e-mail sent out by our company president. A fairly large number of people were going to be laid off. Apparently the economy was effecting the company the same as every one else. I didn’t think I was in too much danger until about 20 minutes later when I got called into my department manager’s office.
My favorite holiday of them all, Halloween just happened (in case you missed the fax). We took some pictures. This is what they look like.
Cricket was the Wicked Witch of the East (pre-house accident), Buster was a fauxhawked Superman (we couldn’t find his batman mask). Here they are with our pumpkin on our back patio before going over to Nate and Mara’s for Trick-or-Treating fun.
