It's official
Well, it's official. I will be unemployed as of August 11, 2009. Just got back from a horrendous bumping meeting (ie Chinese water torture) in which we all had to sit there while they read off the names and those folks had to accept a job that belonged to another person, leaving the 2nd person out of work. Since they eliminated all the positions in the Adult School, I didn't have to go through that because I had no one to bump.

While I still have an income, I'm going to stock up on yarn because I'll never get through this without my knitting! So, I guess that is a silver lining isn't it!

Knitting is saving my sanity

OTN: Hats, hats and soon, socks!

FO:Hats-about 6 of them and a scarf for a coworker

I can't imagine having to bump someone out of their job - that is definitely Chinese water torture. I'm sorry you had to go through that and get bad news on top of it.
