Hey, on the heels of my last post here....

I got laid off today. 

I'm still kind of reeling from it.  But I was assured by our HR person that my bosses (a husband and wife) had just been so broken up about the 20 people they laid off.  I hope they don't cry all the way home to their house in Great Falls (DC people--you know what I mean!) in their BMW and Mercedes.

Well, that would be telling

     Thank you all for all your nice words!  As I know I've said before, I hated the job, but I didn't want to leave it like this!  I applied for a job this afternoon, and I'm planning to get into substituting in the meantime, since I'm in school to teach anyway. 

    And maybe now my apartment will be spotless!

    Well, that would be telling
