Yikes. 

I hear we are having layoffs at work this month and there's a good chance I'm on the list. It's really stressing me out - especially since I'm supposed to close on a new house on Feb 15.   Sad

 Keep good thoughts that I'm not on the list!

DUDE!!!
While I can't send prayers, I will certainly wish you and the family nothing but the best of luck during this time. This kinda stuff always seems to rise at the most inopportune time  Angry though I guess there is never an good time for that kind of thing.

Hope you make it past the cut, but if not I am sure an even better job is just around the corner for you. Maybe even closer to the new house.

Good news (I think)!

I survived the cut....this time.  This was our 2nd one in two months.  I'm not going to wait for a third.  Polishing up the ole resume and I'm in the market.  If anyone knows of anyone hiring IT Managers in the Dallas area, I'm looking.   Grin

OH man!

Jeff, I'm so very glad to hear this for you. And, based on my last layoff, I now know it's waaay better to be ahead of that mess instead of playing catch up. Thinking of you!!

Great news, my friend.  But after 2 layoffs in as many months, I think your plan is a good one.  May have to think of this current job as a temporary blessing to pay the bills until you find your next one.
