So a few days after my last post, I found out that I'll be losing the job I've had for the past 8 years. My company is closing down the business unit I work in. I don't know yet when my last day is going to be, or any other details, but it's very sad. Yes for the money, but even more so for my sense of identity and losing the experience of working with such a great bunch of people. As of now everyone is really wanting to keep in touch with each other - I hope that sticks.
I suspect you will see fewer stash acquisitions around here for awhile, but possibly more knitting projects.
Anyway, keep your fingers crossed, eh? ;)
