In case you hadn't noticed, I get the greatest joy out of my daughter. She's such a doll. So entertaining, even when she's really mad I don't mind. Other parts of my life are total havoc - like job. Tomorrow is D day. I have to let one of my girls go and after months of agonizing, I've made the right decision. It's going to be a real awkward day - we will be down to 3 mgt and 4 staff and each staff remaining will be in some sort of furlough position. It's one of those days that separates management from staff. I'm glad I bring my lunch every day. I don't think I'd be welcome in the commiseration lunch. My boss still speaks in big terms like so and so needs to pull their weight - after they've been furloughed - I've mastered the head nod with serious eyebrows. I wonder if I'll still be ordered to have daily meetings so I know what myself and one other staff is doing? It will be nice to come home to husband and daughter, they are my biggest fans.

Wow. That's awful. I hate this recession. Furlough is a scary word.

Kids are wonderful.

Jobs can suck sometimes. I hope all goes well.

Praying that letting this person go was as peaceful as it could have possibly been. I am glad that you see home as a safe place to land. Its truly a gift to have a place and family that recharges you. Hugs!

It was horrible, so glad today is over. But I came home and Husband went out to get me chocolate and wine, it's not all bad.
