Observing a box has never been this much fun

Heather just called. She's been laid off. Completely blindsided her. Not performance related...downsizing due to economy, possibly closing that office.

She's devastated and my heart is hurting for her. She loved this job very much, it made her feel like she was doing something important.

I feel so helpless half a country away.

My #3 son was on vacation when he heard about possibly being downsized. He called in and yes, he had to go in the next day and sign papers. He was finished. Just like that, six years with a strong, well-known Ohio company was over. It took him a little time but he found another job up in Michigan and he is very happy with it. He no longer lives twenty minutes away, nor our youngest two granddaughters, but we can visit on weekends when the winds are in the correct coordinates.

I am sure Heather will rebound quicker than you think. Maybe closer.
