NON KNITTING POST
We finally got confirmation yesterday, I am laid off for two weeks. I know I shouldn't be happy about this fact, with the state of the economy and my industry especially, but I am glad. The stress level has been almost unbearable, and the break will do me good. I hope.
This lay-off also means another really important thing to me. More knitting time with my friends. When my schedule was changed to 10hrs/4days I had a really hard time finding the time and energy to get together with my friends. So I've got loads of catching up to do.
I was also told that the changes they were going to be making will start when we get back. I had been really worried about that too. I was afraid I was going to be bumped out of my current group and/or shift. Both would not have been good things. Luckily, not only do I get to stay on my shift, but I also get to stay in my group. Unfortunately not on my job, but I'll still be with the people I have been working with for over 10 years. The one down side was my best work friend did get bumped to second shift. And I will miss her terribly.
All this being said, I'm doing my best to stay positive about everything that is happening or will happen in the future. I keep telling myself, "AT LEAST I STILL HAVE A JOB!!!" No matter how much it drives me crazy most of the time.
There will hopefully be loads of posts during the next two weeks. So bye for now...
