I got let go a week ago and it's been really quiet. I used to be surrounded by words, words on the computer monitor I looked at all day, words coming through the headset I wore, words from the girls next to me, the people in the next cube, down the hall, from the office I sat next to, words from the three radio's I could hear, sometimes more. Sometimes I thought I would scream if I had to hear another word, and I would come home to my 4 year old, SHE'S A FOUNTAIN OF WORDS, my husband always had some words not many but words, words none the less. Words from the tv, words from the occasional phone call. More words than I needed.

Now, almost no words. The only words I hear most of the day now come from the tv. I thought I could use a little peace and quiet, but I find that it's MUCH too quiet. Not sure I want to go back to all the words I heard a week or so ago that was too much, but this is too much quiet that's for dang sure.

let go

Well yesterday I got let go, I don't think I've ever been fired from a real job before. IT SUCKS completely and totally. And then I look at Abbie and I REALLY feel bad. If something even worse happens Rick and I will understand. If we turn off our cable we'll get why we can't watch our shows but she'll just be confused, no more ice cream or eating out no problem, but she' s not going to get it.

I'm pissed off and disappointed and discouraged and scared. I get that things are bad everywhere, but I know in every company across the country that is letting people go there are people who aren't being affected in the least. Their pay hasn't changed and won't change, they may work harder for it, but whatever. Someone told me they feel sorry for the ones who had to do the telling, not me THEY STILL HAVE A JOB. While I was packing my box one of the guys watching said to the other, man is this day over yet. SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!! Yea, it was over for me and it wasn't even lunch time.

k, that's enough bitterness for now.

one last thing, how much does it suck that NOT ONLY IS IT THE WEEK WE ARE OUT OF EVERYTHING (toilet paper, soap, shampoo, food, laundry soap etc) BUT THAT I've been so responsible lately buying only clothes I can wear to work that I only have 1 pair of jeans I can wear now that I have days to wear them!
