And the hits just keep on comin'...

I got the pink slip. About 50 of us did. My office is being shut down (thanks, Corporate!) and we've been given the choice to relocate to another office or to take a severance package. The office will physically shut down mid-December and then I've been asked to stay on with a small group until the end of March to transition the accounts and close up shop, basically. At least I've got until Spring. Ideally I'll have a job until 3 weeks before the wedding, take 3 weeks to have my own personal freak-out, get married, go on a honeymoon, come back and start a new position. *sigh* This is just peachy.

OH JEEZ!! I'm going to call this a good thing. We never know why at first...but things do happen for a reason. (But I'm sorry it happened...I know it's stressful.)

Wow. That sucks...but you'll probably need that three weeks for wedding stuff (no matter how low-key you make it, there's always last-minute things that pop up). And think of it this way - you can find a brand new job to go with your brand new life as a married couple.

When it rains, it pours, huh? *HUGS*

I, too, am going to say - see this as a positive. "When one door closes, another opens". A lot can happen between now and March. That gives you lots of time to come up with plan B, C, D, and E if needed...maybe now is the time to think about what you really want to do...what you've always wanted...and go for it. A whole new slate...a new beginning.

Maybe this is just the beginning of a whole new life that will bring you joy beyond your wildest dreams? One never knows....

You are such an amazing woman...you will come out on top, no matter what you do. I am convinced.

Ok this just totally and ridiculously sucks. You have some good karma coming your way soon, though - these things even out, they really do.

"everything happens for a reason" just repeat over and over. Somehow something good will come out of this hopefully!
