Default Black Monday

End of fiscal time for my company, which means reorg time once again. This is the 3rd in as many years. Since we all work from home office'*, we have all been sitting on the edge of our seats since about 9am EST. One by one 20% of our field coworkers fell by the wayside as their phone rang and were giving their walking papers. :( Fortunately I made the cut as did quite a few of my fellow coworkers. Talk about stress! We performed no work today as we were all too worried about the phone ringing. Those of us left did get an "all clear" call just a few minutes ago. I feel like I have been hit by a truck. If you've ever been through this, you know what I mean, if you haven't, count your blessings and pray that you never do.

No kidding! And I thought taking calls from angry customers that just dropped $1.5 million on a job that wasn't going right was bad.

That takes the cake.

Unfortuunately, I can't make NEBF this time. Our wedding is the first of Dec and we are trying to make an offer on a house this week. 2 reasons that I was sweating bullets on Monday. But I do already have a rain check for the next one!!!
